My goal in interior design is to craft spaces that are elegant yet simple, functional and adaptable. An interior should be imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete and welcome evolution and change. It should be a reflection of the people who live in that space and allow for the incorporation of possessions that cross any one aesthetic or period. It should celebrate the beauty of natural materials like wood and stone and use materials like wool, cotton and silk to add softness. Texture, pattern, and color are used to make the space exciting. Above all, it should be comfortable and inviting and not sacrifice function for form.
Living spaces should be healthy environments which are maintainable with a minimum of effort and cleaning products. I avoid consumerism and design interiors that are not ostentatious, overly “designed” and stage-like, trendy or overt displays of wealth. Quirkiness and a sense of humor are always allowed.
For more examples of my work, take a look at the Interior Design section of my gallery.
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.

A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
