Q:

Where do you find design inspiration?

A:

I am a classicist at heart. I look to architects like the late John F. Staub who designed beautifully proportioned homes. His spaces never feel too large or too small. I follow the work of Gil Shaffer, Steven Gambrel, and many others who all have a strong sense of place in their work. I also try to hunt down architectural magazines and books from the 20’s and 30’s. They are great resources for well thought out details.

Q:

How do you approach the design process?

A:

I have an appreciation for almost ever design aesthetic there is so I feel II listen, listen, and then listen to the client. It doesn’t matter how much I want to do something for a space if in the end it is not what the client wants. It’s all about getting to know the people who inhabit a home or office. The design has to be an extension of the client’s personality. You have to get to really know your client.

Q:

What makes your aesthetic stand out amongst other designers?

A:

I think it’s my attention to the small details that people overlook. I believe a lot of people accept the "look" of something that inevitably leaves you with a feeling of falling short.

Q:

What is the greatest value you provide to your clients?

A:

Honesty, guidance, and support of their opinions and decisions. I don’t always agree with my client’s choices at first. But I always respect their opinions.
