How did you get started as an Interior Designer?

I always wanted to do interior design, it was something that I was always interested in. At the time,I didn't understand it could really be a career. I worked for a fashion brand that moved into the home space and I loved it so I went back to school for design and interned for a small design firm then eventually went off on my own.

How would you describe your design style and where do you find inspiration?

My design style is livable - approachable - luxury. I create comfortable family friendly and elevated spaces.

What is the best part of your job as an Interior Designer?

Helping people optimize their space and creating their dream home and being able to help them bring it all to fruition is amazing.

What trends are you seeing in the bathroom space for 2024?

For bathrooms and across the board, people are embracing color more. I’m finding that people  are down to do more daring things and are viewing bathrooms as an extension of their home. People are more open to wallpaper and elements that fit within the general aesthetic in their home. The approach of cozy instead of just a utility space for bathrooms is something I am seeing. 

What do you consider timeless for bathroom design? 

I think that you can never go wrong with polished nickel as a finish. Carrara is always quite timeless. Any livable or natural material is always more timeless and will age with the house. Any profiles that are rooted in more traditional shapes tend to have more longevity as well.
