When I was growing up my mother could never find her Better Homes and Gardens or Sunset magazines. She learned to look in my room, under the pillow or inside the toy box where I would squirrel it away for a quiet hour to daydream. My Barbie Dream House was never quite enough to inspire the burgeoning creative spirit within, and the home we lived in certainly wasn't! With the growth of that creative spirit came a recognition that a home environment could be significantly enhanced by good design. After a career in music took me all over the world and offered the opportunity to enjoy and experience what makes a home in many different cultures, my husband and I started building our own life and home together. Garden workshops and symposiums in England followed, and then a professional designation as a home stager. With over a decade of vocational decorating experience now behind me, and almost three decades creating residences and gardens for our family, I have come to value all that is home, from the inside out. I enjoy the art that is within every decorating style, but my personal aesthetic embraces light, airy, sunshiney and casual living. Ever a California girl, light and bright neutrals that act as a foil for the watery blues and greens of our coastline truly float my boat, and I prefer accessorizing more with natural elements than manufactured in a timeless, restrained and uncluttered way. I value the sense of fresh air, sunshine, and breathing room this kind of interior affords and believe it acts as an elegant catalyst for personal restoration, refreshment and nurture for all who gather there. Every project presents with different needs, and joyful living takes on its own meaning for each person I design for. My passion and purpose is to bring this kind of customized refreshment to my clients' rooms, so they will find home to be the most beautiful place in their world. It would be my honor to provide this for you!

"She is very eager and customer service oriented. Her ability to coordinate colors with designs in light of what I was looking for, incredible. We had several conversations, she showed me some template, she listened, heard and understood what I was really saying and she did it. She really knows how to work with the customer on colors, designs and customers' desires! "
