I believe luxury should never feel stuffy, beauty should always feel personal, and the basic need never feel common.

My approach to design integrates a cultured aesthetic with homey sensibilities. As a New York native, lifelong globetrotter, and passionate observer, I’ve had the great fortune to expand my artistic perspective – and bring it back home.

I’ve worked in interior design for over 40 years, all over the world. Experience truly is the best teacher, and I’ve had the privilege to design a rich spectrum of projects, from residential to commercial, from humble to palatial. I’m lucky to be proud of the work I’ve done.

Few things excite me more than creating a unique space that reflects the personalities of those who inhabit it.

A well-curated room can delight and inspire. A well-designed home can soothe and uplift. A thoughtful collaboration can surprise and exalt.

For the past 12 years, I’ve collaborated with my daughter Merick, and I couldn’t be prouder of her exceptional talent.

I’m inspired by travel, fabrics, classical elegance, and functional beauty. The dinner party of my dreams includes Gian Bernja, Martha Stewart, and Beatrix Potter. When I’m not designing you can find me attending Broadway shows, perusing antique shops, and attending lectures about art and design. My greatest passion is my grandchildren: I love seeing the world anew through their eyes.

Finding the right designer for you is a question of aesthetics and process, artistry and trust. As a skilled listener and seasoned artisan, I see every project as an opportunity to meet the unique needs, desires, and tastes of my clients.
