mgdDesigning or decorating a home can be exciting, overwhelming and sometimes, an expensive endeavor. I enjoy guiding my clients into the right choices. I’m inspired by sources natural as well as industrial. I try to not let one design style define me, instead I allow many considerations influence me creatively.

I love re-designing a space, whether it be a new space or just a face lift for a favorite room. Re-using furniture, re-upholstering or creating new ideas from something vintage is a terrific way to breathe new life into your home, especially when you’re on a budget. It’s also the easiest way to be Green. I strive to choose the best options for you and for the environment, to source local and to employ local artisans.

Paint, paint, paint! This IS the easiest way to update any home or room. Although white rooms can be very sexy, color is the secret weapon and can be an affordable fix. I specialize in choosing the right palette for any space. I use Benjamin Moore color palettes and always recommend non or low VOC paints.
Art can be a powerful statement and add to any environment. What you choose to hang on your walls really matters; I’m an avid art collector and tell my clients that a piece of art can make a room. When the wallet allows, to the gallery we go!

So whether you are beginning a new project or remodel, need inspiration on how to furnish a room or your home, starting from scratch or just need an update, I’m available to help you realize your own style. I have years of experience plus a great eye for color and composition and will assist you in your design adventure.
