The Pursuit of Joy

Clients admire our ability to draw from a kaleidoscopic toolbox of texture, pattern, and color to create rooms evocative of one emotion above all others - joy.  In a word, it is the essence of who we are as designers and the journey we embark on with clients.  Rather than hewing closely to a particular style, such as French Moderne, Neoclassical, Mid-Century, or Hollywood Regency, our aesthetic is rooted in a vivid interpretation of our clients desires, creating a sense of adventure and always resulting in a highly individualized, collected design.

Here is the truth: designing confidently is not for the faint of heart.  Be it a bold or subtle palette, there are so many combinations, so many finishes, and so many wrong paths we understand why there is an epidemic of plain, flat, boring rooms.  But, in the right hands, pattern can sing, color can elicit joy, and texture can evoke true luxury like nothing else can. Is it a leap of faith? Yes. So trust us with the journey. We know from personal experience just how life enhancing a beautiful, couture room can be. Witnessing clients embrace interesting new ideas in their homes is one of the highlights of what we do. 

We delight in flexing our creative muscles to execute custom, one-of-a-kind pieces for our clients. We also select from a variety of vetted sources including to-the-trade showrooms, artisan furniture galleries, auctions, specialty trades, and antique and vintage dealers.  We are continuously on the hunt for those exceptional pieces, and we enjoy introducing clients to talented creators.  We are happy to travel with you, and provide access to our many vendors.

In the end, we create homes that provoke a powerful emotional response from our clients - delight, warmth, comfort, wonder, pride, and of course, joy.

Custom Tailored To You

As a full-service interior design firm, we create bespoke interiors for a discerning clientele.  We lead clients through the design process to express their unique style and sensibility, while guiding them to discover and embrace new ideas to create an exceptional living environment. Many of our clients are high achievers who have reached the upper echelons of their professions - a journey I understand from my own professional experience. From the first meeting, we establish a highly professional process allowing clients to trust in our ability to deliver results exceeding their expectations.  

Full-Service

We understand you have limited availability to handle the many details involved in a design project.  Our goal is to make the process as easy and seamless as possible for you.  We handle all selection, specification, ordering, delivery, and installation of all decor items for your project - everything from furniture to lighting to tile to window treatments.  Working with our team of receivers, delivery professionals, and installers, we ensure the carefully selected items for your home are handled with care and installed to specification.  This is where we kick into left-brain mode, handling the complex organizational demands of executing a luxury interior design project.

Collaboration

We only work with the best contractors, tradespeople, vendors, and artisans to execute our design vision. We are uncompromising in our pursuit of perfection on behalf of our clients. Our process is rooted in a mutually respectful collaboration with architects, builders, artisans, and the many specialized trades required to deliver a completed project. Our detailed CAD drawings, 3-D renderings, and interior specifications are submitted to the client and the project team to ensure all parties have a complete understanding of the design.  We also work closely with the team to incorporate the latest technological advances to add convenience and quite a few bells and whistles to the home.  We view our role as your eyes, ears, and voice throughout the execution phase of the design process.  If you have not selected an architect and/or builder for your renovation or new build home, we will assemble a best in class team of professionals for you.
