Interior Designer

What inspired your passion for interior design?

I have always wanted to decorate. I’ve been lucky to live in Europe three times, and I know that only increased my enthusiasm for beautiful, well-built architecture and thoughtful, edited interiors.

Who are your (design) mentors?

I love the work of Gil Schafer and Shope Reno Wharton. Both architectural firms design houses that look like they have been around forever.

What art field are you most interested in?

I love all the visual arts, but, if I only had one hour at the Louvre, I would spend it looking at paintings. I am in awe of what artists can do with a brush.

“ The three most important elements when designing a room are to have a functional space plan, ensuring the furniture scale is correct and finding ways to bring in plenty of natural light.”

What are the most important decorative elements in your home?

I am a big believer in paying attention to the fixed details - decorative molding, hardware, and light fixtures can transform a space.

From your experience, what is the best decorating advice you can offer someone?

Only buy what you love.

What's your Frette Masterpiece? (Your favourite Frette piece)

I’m hooked on the Grace sheets from Frette. They are simple but chic, and their timeless beauty reminds me of my daughter...whose name happens to be Grace!

Where do you go for design inspiration in the New England area?

The Innovation and Design Building here in Boston is a wonderful place to find inspiration. The showrooms are so welcoming and helpful. They work hard to keep the local design community up to date on new resources and really partner with the designers to make the clients happy.

What is your favorite book, magazine, or site related to design?

The two design books I refer to again and again are A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander and The Elements of Style edited by Stephen Calloway. I bought both these books ages ago while in design school and they were well worth the money!
