“I love oversized gigantic scale floral wallcovering, it sets the mood for the entire room and envelopes you and instantly transforms you into the garden and serenity. I love to compliment the paper with different textures like the velvets in the chairs, metallic window sheers from designers guild, and mohair throw by Auskin. I love the use of blush and pinks against the black, they make for a dramatic yet soothing room. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold!”

“Many homes in the Hamptons have very high ceilings. My design for this project was to come up with a solution to fill the air space in the room. Collaborating with the client led us to Helen Bilt, a lighting designer in Sag Harbor. We worked together to create an art installation of her urchin collection. It is very whimsical and has a contemporary feel.”
