” My inspiration is classical, gleaned from the decorative arts, but I then add my very own whimsical spin. I’m a huge advocate of eclecticism, and love combining different fabrics, motifs, materials, colors or eras. I also love adding a plethora of details, ensuring there’s always something of interest, no matter where the gaze falls. I feel that spaces need to have their own soul. And for each project, I work with the very best craftsmen, including marble masons, cabinetmakers, glassmakers, glass blowers, mosaic specialists and lacquerers. I really enjoy seeing all that creativity at work. “
