How did you get started in interior design?

I have an extensive background in art, minoring in studio art at Vanderbilt University, studying art and design in Florence, Italy and taking graphic design courses at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). I decided to pursue a career in interior design as a way of combining my love of design and architecture and earned my BFA after college. My grandmother was an artist and my mother an interior designer, so their influences have shaped my aesthetic along the way.

How would you describe your design aesthetic?

Having three boys, I understand the importance of creating beautiful spaces that are both durable and practical. Rooms should feel “lived in” and comfortable, without sacrificing style and beauty. My designs are usually very colorful, layered, clean and classic.

What do you love most about including original art in your designs?

Artwork is the jewelry of the room! Being an artist myself allows me to see spaces through both a design and an art lens. I have designed rooms around a piece of artwork and also enjoyed the hunt for the perfect piece to complete my spaces.

Favorite thing about living in the south?

I grew up in Savannah, GA, and I love the appreciation of classic style, fresh creativity, mysterious old homes, historic architecture and oak trees dripping with spanish moss. I love that everyone is friendly, has an open door and a cocktail in their hand!

Must haves for creating an inviting space:

Color, layers of old and new, a touch of black and custom creations.

Design Upgrades:

Paint is the easiest and most reasonable upgrade to a space. Cabinet hardware, fun lighting and artwork are all easy additions as well.
