Whether you live in the city, or in the country, an apartment or a house, your home should be a reflection of who you are and what you love. “John Wheatman”
Homes grow and change over the years just as the people who live in them do.A well designed home is more than coordinated colors and fabrics. Recognizing the intimate relationship between the architecture and the life that dwells inside is the key to a timeless design.
Design balances functionality with personal expression. People need to move about easily with plenty of room for friends and private places. No part of your home should go unused or be cordoned off for “special occasions.” Daily routines in your living space are special occasions–whether you spend them alone reading a good book, cooking a meal with dear friends, or taking an afternoon nap. I encourage people to throw out the rules and preconceptions. Have an open mind, be bold and have fun.
I get to know my clients by asking questions, listening, and observing how they live. Through years of experience, I am able to quickly get to the core of peoples’ needs. Your collections, books on shelves and nightstands, and the insides of closets inspire me. I love designing to the way you personally live.
In the end, we achieve a timeless result that is an expression of who you are.
Native to the Bay Area, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from San Jose State University in 1987. I have worked in the design business ever since. I have learned the complexities of the design business from all facets.
I am fortunate to have had profound learning experiences from John Wheatman of John Wheatman & Associates. I continue be inspired from his deep understanding of the intensely personal expression of interior design.
Be inspired by the world around you – I am.
