HERE’S THE DEAL
While all the normal kids were playing outside, I was collaging clippings from my grandmothers Better Homes & Gardens magazines together as inspiration for my barbie dream house or rearranging my bedroom furniture by dragging it across the room without asking for help. I always chose HGTV over MTV. I even asked for a can of paint and brushes for my birthday once.
I know that I am undoubtedly, completely, totally meant to be here to create stunning spaces. I’m regularly hit with an overwhelming decorgasm – that walk into a room, heart stopping, sweat inducing sight of pure design perfection.
Ironically, I’m a homeless designer of homes. I quit my job at a high end firm to set out on a year of discovery and inspiration absorbing all the art, architecture, and design through the eyes of different cultures. I’m a resident of the world. You can usually find me haggling in a Souk, strolling an antiques flea market, or working from a cafe filled with eclectic mismatched chairs…with croissant in hand.
From the aqua blue Mediterranean sea, to the cool grey crumbing ruins. I find inspiration in all that surrounds me.
I’m caught in a love triangle between bright neutrals and saturated hues. I believe natural stone is the best kind of high and after a long day there’s nothing quite like jumping into a bed with Egyptian cotton sheets and rolling with the throw pillows.
One of my projects got published once. In a real book. Sold in a real bookstore. That was cool. But there’s a lot of designers out there that can create a book worthy room- they have the budget, the resources, the team, but not everyone has those luxuries….
And then in the midst of a decorgasm filled pinterst bender I realized that I could change that. I could be your designer bestie, give you some pro tips, and a plan so you my dear could design your perfect space, On Delancey Place.
