Design element she loves to incorporate into a space: “Wonderfully framed artwork. It can be a group of beautiful reproduction prints or a single piece. Quality framing makes a huge difference.”

Favorite design trend of the moment: “Adding a bit of sparkle to each room. It can be as simple as polished chrome hardware and light fixtures, glass tiles in your kitchen, or a mirrored chest in your hall. It adds a bit of drama to each space.”

Favorite rooms to design: Family spaces. “They’re the hub of the household and require careful selection of the appropriate finishes to withstand everyday living.”

Her definition of good taste: “Less is more. Quality over quantity.”

Three words that sum up her design: “Fresh but timeless.”

Best part of her job: Client relationships. “My job throws me into my clients’ everyday lives, so I get to know the family quite well.”
