What is your dream project?
My absolute dream project would be a contemporary eclectic ranch style home in the mountains. I love the idea of mixing streamlined, contemporary pieces with rugged, cozy aspects against a gorgeous, natural backdrop.
What is one place you have traveled to that has inspired the design of your own home?
My husband frequently travels to Scotland on business and I have enjoyed going with him on occasion. Scotland incorporates deep blue, grey, and misty greens. I love spending a rainy day bundled up next to a cozy fire inside a hunting lodge filled with antique furniture and light accents. I’ve noticed that I lean towards old-world pieces, like antlers paired with modern lines. While unusual, it always works and I love it!
If you got to pick a movie to live in, which would it be?
Surely I am not the only person who could totally curl up and make myself right at home in any of Diane Keaton’s movie homes? Father of the Bride…Somethings Gotta Give…To name a couple!
What is the least glamorous thing you do as a designer?
Last week I injured my shin while moving a large floor lamp for a client. So maybe cuts and bruises?
If you were to create the ideal design power couple, who would they be and why?
Benjamin Vandiver and Suzanne Kasler should definitely collaborate on something — for the good of the world! He is amazing at creating a minimalist aesthetic that feels luxurious and lived in and her talent in mixing textures and patterns is completely on point. Benjamin and Suzanne, if you are reading this…do something together and whatever it is, I will buy it!
