Designer Profile

I love combining found objects with fine antiques and custom furnishings to create an unexpected, yet classic interior, that brings out my clients' personal tastes, style and aesthetics. I love using common materials in unexpected ways and unexpected materials in common ways. Good design should never be boring or typical, but always be personal and meaningful to the client.

From concept to completion, planning to project management and everything in between, my firm offers full-service interior design specializing in residential new construction and major remodeling.

I am an award winning, certified interior designer with a studio in Orange County, California.

Fee Structure

Determined on a project by project basis.

This 2010 award-winning Sacramento great room showcases the harmonious use of color, materials, and textures.  For example, notice the consistent use of copper and bronze metallics in the space and also notice how the furnishings in the kitchen and breakfast nook all tie in. The custom fabric covered cornice boxes hide the motorized solar shades from sight when not in use.
Notice the fabulous feature wall in this 2010 award-winning Sacramento home.  The wall is covered in irridescent, recycled glass tiles and has niches especially sized for the homeowners' art as well as the modern fireplace and TV. An outdated, dropped ceiling soffit and an old oak wall to wall entertainment unit were removed to make way for this updated, sleeker design.
This Sacramento breakfast nook features two pantries backlined with fabric to hide the clutter.  Notice the amazing bronze armoire in the middle.  It's used to store the homeowners' platters.  What a nice change from just another cabinet.  Before the remodel, there was an old oak desk in this space with a dropped ceiling above it. What a transformation!
The 1-1/2 thick glass island countertop is textured and looks like water in this kitchen. The client wanted something different and special for the countertop.  I am happy to report that my client says that this is just about the easiest surface to care for that they have ever had!  Just a little Windex, and voila!
This transitional kitchen shows the use of many different materials - a glass island and glass backsplash tiles, warm wood cabinetry and Caesarstone countertops.  It has simple, clean lines and easy to care for surfaces. Notice the extensive use of drawers for storage rather than cabinet doors. These drawers are full extension snd accommodate all the homeowner's pots, pans and small appliances. Kitchen drawers are much easier to access than cabinets doors and shelves.
This amazing study features a desk for two, traditional bookcases and a unique sleeping niche!  This niche was transformed out of an unused closet and was specifically sized to hold a twin-size TempurPedic mattress. Now that is some serious comfort for napping!
The other side of this office has custom shelving to display the homeowners' books as well as their art and accessories.  These floating shelves are attached to the wall with hidden hardware.  They were also designed to be different depths to add interest.
What a relaxing guest suite in this 2010 award-winning Sacramento home.  Custom bedding and divine silk window treatments add to the feeling of luxury.  The monochromatic color palette creates a calming and peaceful space for guests.  The mirrored nightstands and bathroom vanity add a little bit of drama and fun.
The guest bathroom in this home show that traditional materials like the marble floor and travertine vanity top combined with the mirrored vanity create a stylish transitional space.
