Why use a designer?
Designers have a specialized skill set just like any other professional trade. You would never be your own legal representation or do your own plumbing – you would hire a professional to get the job done right the first time around.
Why shop the trade?
The trade offers access to unique and custom pieces to achieve a look that you just can’t get at a retail store. This helps you create a lived in, personalized and put-together environment.
What is your most valued design tip?
Trust your instincts. We live in a world where we love to create rules to live by, but every so often it’s important to be a rebel, especially in design.
What makes your style unique?
Well, first off, there are two creative minds behind every design decision. Our style is an infusion of enhancing yesterday’s classics with today’s luxuries. When our clients let us push their limits 100% of the time that is the element they thank us the most for.
Who is your design icon and why?
We are inspired by the great originals – Elsie De Wolfe, Dorothy Draper and Sister Parish to name a few.
What is your favorite movie set?
If you could live in a different time period, when would it be and why?
Definitely New York City at the turn of the century – when limestone mansions were being erected and every day was an occasion to dress up for a ball.
What is your greatest indulgence?
Pistachio Gelato for Virginia and Belgian Frites for Jessica (can you tell we like to eat?)
