Meet the Designer
What made you want to pursue a design career?
My eye for interior design began at a young age of 10. I remember flipping through interior design magazines with my sister and mom. Those memories always make me smile!
What is it about your surroundings that inspire your design?
My favorite source of inspiration is travel! Experiencing different cultures forces me to think outside the box and admire architecture.
Are there any new design trends that excite or annoy you?
The wallpaper trend is coming back, and I love it! It is exciting and inspiring to see new patterns and textures launching.
What is your favorite color?
