How would you describe your style?

"I create interiors inspired by the beauty of European sensibilities and adapted for expatriate lifestyles. My creative approach is influenced by my own experience as an American designer living in Paris. Sourcing products and inspiration from Europe, I bring a sense of history and a collected aesthetic to each project that respects both the culture and architectural vernacular of the location of the project while at the same time addressing the needs of my expatriate clientele to create a home away from home."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"I recently completed a full renovation of a Parisian pied-à-terre apartment for some American clients. They desired a place that felt like their own 5-star Parisian hotel. Along with preserving the original architectural bones of the apartment, a second guest room and guest bath were created along with a small master suite so they would have space to host friends and family when visiting. I also added thoughtful luxuries like underfloor heating, marble slab shower walls accented by antique brass fixtures, and a mix of bespoke upholstery and case goods with vintage and antique items sourced from Parisian galleries and flea markets. The project resulted in their own Ritz Hotel paradise!"
