I AM THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE MY PARTICIPATION IN DESIGNING THE GREAT ROOM, A TWO STORY LIVING SPACE IDEAL FOR EFFORTLESSLY STYLISH INTERIORS
THE HAMPTONS DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE
SAG HARBOR - SUMMER 2020
ABOUT MY VISION
THE POWER OF BEAUTY & THE FEMININE PERSPECTIVE
The design of the great room- the heart of the Sag Harbor Shingle Style home-- is envisioned around a specific client- a prolific female artist with a family, and how she would live and adapt to her space in this very unique time, and how I would design for her love of place and artistry in all its forms. I show how she is drawn to beauty in many unique forms as an artist, and connected to the natural environment. And in the current times, I thought it was interesting to show how she would adapt her spaces, in real time. The room is a look at how high design spaces can be done at high speed, without sacrificing style, so that she, and we can live our lives at full-bandwidth, whatever comes our way.
THANK YOU TO OUR TRUSTED PARTNERS & SUPPLIERS IN THIS ONE OF A KIND DESIGN
My interiors always start with the client as what inspires me. Here, I envisioned designing a home for a prolific female artist. As head of household, she needs interiors made for living, and with so many of us needing to retrofit a space for more function, I show how fast doesn't always sacrifice style. This is high design at high speed, to match her wits, with meaning and bespoke style.
Original and bespoke with custom pieces, this room is made for living at full bandwidth - from lounging to soirées to movie nights, interior design is not just for the precious, but rather beauty is born from living in the space, and the rhythm that is created from form and function.
The interior design is envisioned as a home of a prolific artist and head of her household. Her environment is her inspiration with an open atrium of windows connecting her to the natural beauty of Sag Harbor. The color palette of furnishings is inspired by shells from the bay (noted for their delicate textures and colors) that are also dotted with rounded stones of rich burgundy and brown tones.
With home as a place we use and spend time in now more than ever, the room is functional, versatile and comfortable with storage and a flexible space for WFH, and many conversational nooks created as experiences within experiences. Have a homework help session at the ready in a conversational area abutting a long sideboard, ideal in itself for a workspace. An original design for the changing way we live in our spaces and what we demand from them was one of the driving forces behind my inspiration behind this interior design.

My partners not only provide bespoke luxury and interior pieces with style— but they bring them as quickly as you need them. This space is not only an inspired artists space- showing the connection with color and inventive patterns and texture, but this is a space that shows you can adapt your home quickly without sacrificing style. Effortless style that wears durably, designed around your life, for your needs, in colors and textures that are beautiful, so living your life doesn’t have to wait for custom to be beautiful.

From Passion to Paradigm
How all of my work is based on the client, and through understanding each client, I'm able to create the most beautiful, intentional version of their space
Each project uses a unique vision and approach. Born of the desire to create interiors that resonate with each client I design for, I've identified a shift that's happening in how design is done, and it all starts with this approach.
Welcome to my new site and newest work, which you can browse by category above, some so fresh off the presses it has yet to be professionally photographed. This work represents The New Design Paradigm in how I design for clients to flourish in their spaces, even with real time changing needs. You can read more about the process in the coming weeks as I launch a blog, and in media & for awards which I've been honored to receive. The The New Design Paradigm shift is a culmination of my expertise in design; my work in luxe homes & also on experiential spaces for business clients, crafted carefully from 25 years combined experience in the high end interior design & hospitality industries.
From Saratoga Springs to Newport, and Montreal to Manhattan Rooftops, I've been weaving a web of markedly original creative interiors that hearken as much to authentic eras of design as they do to the here-and-now excitement you feel when being in a room that's done just right- whether it is the innovative color palette that relates to you most, or the piece we restored from the clients own mementos and heirlooms.
The New Design Paradigm is part of understanding what makes people 'switch off' and relax and enjoy. And, its one of the ways we've been studying what makes people tick from a series of diverse methodologies that gives meaning to our interiors based on psychology & centuries old physiology rooted in ancient Chinese medicine. Couple this with MBA business management analytical experience, and my decades in hospitality and aesthetics beside my clients, guiding and shaping the feel of their spaces to be the best versions of themselves.
Beautiful environments can take you to a place of inspiration, delight and ultimately to the present moment- a place of relaxed well-being. There, you resonate differently with the world & offerings around you. With compelling beauty in your home, you change the game of how you live and work; elevated to its very best caliber.
For business clients, I offer a unique perspective of innate design while understanding the modern consumer & their sentiments in real time to deliver more revenue to your ventures.
I invite you to explore and stay connected with me, as I share insights on The New Design Paradigm. And, as always, stay tuned for my upcoming work as it unfolds in the months and weeks to come.
