“My home and studio consist of a 20 year collection of art and antiques from all my adventures in my life and work. Living amongst all of these treasures feeds my creative spirit and keeps my eyes open to an endless array of inspiration.” 
“Above, is a French, Circa 1900 love seat which resides in my library, accompanied by my favorite table in the home, a Circa 1930 Moroccan mosaic tile top with hand-painted base. An absolute ritual for me, flowers, picked from my garden in every room, all arranged in my extensive collection of gorgeous vintage vases! Flowers bring life and bursting color to every room.”

“Just a peek into my textile collection…there are many more trunks to add to this 20 year collection of masterful textile treasures. I use these, when I’m willing to part with them for various bespoke projects I’m working on and for constant inspiration in all of my designs.”
