“As an Interior Designer and Gallerist, I am a firm believer that your home is your sanctuary. Home should be a place where one feels welcome; a place to recharge and disconnect. I love to design spaces with that in mind combined with what I like to call my 3 C’s philosophy: Comfortable, Colorful, and Chic. With those principles and with the use of technology is how I embrace the future of the design industry.”
