Design Inspirations

Inspiration for design can come from many places. In design school, I remember getting the opportunity to design a space from words we drew from a hat...things like clouds, the ocean, the different seasons, or the elements. I love it when a client comes to me and asks for an interior based on something special or unique.

My sister-in-law and her family are happiest at the beach. She has decorated the kids bathroom with objects they found on the beach, photos from their trips, and the walls and tile are in coastal colors. I feel happy when I see that room.

What inspires you? What makes you happy?

Here are a few of my favorite things and interiors or decor that reflect them.

Chocolate and Coffee
Some of the best things life has to offer. Warm, cozy, and comforting.

Yellow Labs

Their golden coat, soft brown eyes, and black noses.

Rainy Days

I love hearing the rain on the roof and a cozy day to curl up and read a good book. This coverlet and shams look like a rainy, cloudy sky.
