I get a thrill working with clients in their own home, seeing their excitement when we transform their space using furniture and accessories they already own.

I have never been in a home that didn't have amazing and interesting collections. They are the personal imprint of the individuals who live there.

Most people, however, need a little help pulling it all together.

Using decorating principles developed through working with hundreds of clients has taught me to quickly analyze what's missing in a room and fix it.

Frequently, just by rearranging furniture and moving some pictures and accessories, we can create a dramatic transformation.

My clients get happy, and that makes me happy.

I would like to share those same principles, secrets, and tips with you. I sincerely hope you use them, enjoy them and find them helpful. Best wishes and thank you for visiting!

Interior Decorating and the Golden Mean

There's a mysterious balance in all of nature. You can observe it on a scale as grand as the stars, or in small leaves and shells. It's reflected in the Parthenon in Greece, the Pyramids of Egypt, timeless music, and every genius work of art. It is brilliant in its design...it is the blueprint of life. And it's used in interior design.
