Meet The Team
"Our Full Service Design firm follows a two-step process that creates a foundation for the final look. First, neutral tones are applied to main furnishings, walls and materials. As a native of Sarasota I refer to that base color as “the beach”. This second phase, or “the sunset” selectively infuses bold accents of art, glass, and custom fabrics into each setting. The end result exudes class, quality and color."
"We listen very closely to our client's wants and needs. Like an artist with a blank canvas that starts painting, you don’t know exactly where it’s going until you move it along. They know we can give them the look they love.”
Design Associate and Project Manager
"An incredible amount of organization and planning goes into each and every one of our projects. We may make it look easy, however experience and being extremely detail oriented is why I look forward to every interior remodel and new build project, as no two projects are ever the same."
"Being the liaison between our clients and over 350 to the trade vendors and general contractors I am able to keep all custom orders and installations on a timely basis. This is such a creative and fast-paced industry, I’m very lucky to interact with so many interesting people."
