Do you have a catchphrase, motto or mantra?

I´m a big believer that our homes should reflect ourselves. Make it personal!

What inspired you to join the world of design?

I was raised in the Midwest, with roots in both Chicago and Denver, and it was the architecture and design of the urban and rural areas of these two metropolises that first inspired me. That - combined with growing up around my grandparents´ upholstery business.

What is your favorite part of the design process?

Design Development! The collaboration with the client, the exchange of ideas and inspiration.

What´s your must have when working with a client or on a project?

Quality Materials, Functionality, Originality, and a sense of humor.

What´s your favorite brain food?

Coffee, Coffee flavored anything~

What is your favorite room of the house?

In my home, the sunroom and outside sitting area. My favorite rooms to design would have to be rooms adjacent to the outdoors.

If you weren´t a designer what would you be?

There is a scene in the end of the movie Bourne Identity, where the heroine in the movie has a small coffee shop/moped rental shop, on the top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. I could do that for a few years. ~

What is your favorite thing about working with Oceanside Glasstile?

The people. They generally go above and beyond what normal service support might do. Our glass tile rep really came through for us. We customized our tile by changing the iridescence; the process was tricky but the color turned out perfect. To top it off, we ran short and needed an add-on, she was able to accommodate a match for us!
