... a passionate revelation of my design rituals ...
a passionate account from a South Florida award-wining interior designer who is blessed to celebrate her 20th year anniversary of designing "interiors that lift your spirit™"
Welcome! The search is finally over. That perfect marriage of understanding without words:one look, one image, a breathtaking view... Someone who will know how to interpret her client's wishes by listening to all the unsaid words, seeing the cues, perceiving the feelings with a simple gaze.
I am the lucky designer who will get to go into the personal spaces in your life, your office or home. That place you call your own, where you can be you. Your surroundings matter to me, my passion is to let the best of you shine through the space you occupy. No antiseptic rooms, catalog photo-shoot ready, rather the elegant comfort of a back porch at sunset is the feeling I want in the interior of your private spaces. The sink-down comfort of being in your OWN space.
Let your smile shine as you enjoy learning about my passion for design. Then, you will see why we say: experience Interiors that lift your spirit™.

Before & after: from vision to reality

How amazing is it to be able to convey to clients a vision, an idea, a perfect image to scale of what their space will look like. As if I was able to push the fast forward button on my remote and visualize the space wit the custom furniture. A money-saving tool that allows for colors to be interchanged with the click of a (few..) button. Yet, what better investment for both designer and client alike to utilize the time to see all the details in a color rendering.

This office condo-loft with it's high ceiling, exposed slabs and ductwork, allowed for a great mix of natural wood tones, in this case maple, with inserts of perforated metal, which maintain the industrial feel of the loft. The 3/4" thick glass top offers the perfect balance between wood and metal, while it's transparency makes for an illusion of a grander space.
