Home design can be overwhelming for a lot of people. For some, like myself the creative process is a driving force. The source of my happiness and well being is the organic process of creating a living environment that expresses the lifestyle and personality of the people I work with, whether it's in the shade of cool zen tones or the colorful and wacky tones of Alice in Wonderland.

Home Design is in my family's blood. My great great great grandfather had a home décor shop in 1889 Chicago, IL. Even now, almost a century and a half later, it's all we talk about at our family gatherings.

All of my life I have loved textiles and color. Growing up we had ruby red velvet wallpaper on our living room walls. Even as a young girl I loved the way the wallpaper felt and was aware of how dramatic the choice was for a living room.

In high school I pushed the limits with the dress code. My favorite pants were hip-hugger bell bottoms in a purple corduroy with snake skin print. I loved the way the texture and the vibrancy of the purple really showed off my unique personality.

In my thirties I found my first home one quarter of a mile from an upholstery shop. While I lived in that house, I volunteered at the store a few hours a week in exchange for remnants and the knowledge of what was hot in the world of textiles.

Today I work with clients with different budgets, lifestyles, and personalities to find the perfect fit for them. From furniture to wall decor (and everything in between), I try to make every house reflect the people that live there so they can feel like they're coming home.
