I AM HONOURED THAT YOU ARE HERE AND WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME.
I love colour, every colour and design. I have always wanted to write about colour and design and so here I am. I love making and repurposing things. I love being independent and being able to do things for myself. I love networking with people who are good at what they do and sharing ideas with them. I love helping people discover what they love. And I want to share what I have learned with you. I love my family and friends. I love travelling and I love cooking and fresh food ….. probably too much. I love my clients, some of them have become friends. I love my home but it is often a work in progress. I love my dog.
My philosophy has always been about bringing good design practices to the homeowner. Our home is our most expensive investment and the place we should love to be. It is where we should feel safe and happy. We should love the space we live in. I believe that every person has a storey and if given a chance I can help the home owner tell that story. I like to think that I am the curator of your belongings and your space. In the end I want to have translated your desires and your stories into your space. The process is not about me and my taste but the journey I take with the home owner. It is about discovering your good taste.
I believe good design does not have to be expensive or overwhelming. I think Ikea has as much a place in the realm of design as any expensive furniture store. I also believe that a lot of what we own can easily be repurposed and reutilized. Sometimes the fun lies in redesigning something we already have! There are so many options out there and I travel the world to bring them to you.
Colour & Design Consults
Colour choices (big or small, everyone is important), furniture placement, storage issues, flow & design dilemmas. I can help by phone, in person, or on the internet. I can save you time & money. I love solving problems!
Major Renovation or a new build? I can work between you & your contractor to create a timeline so colour & design decisions don't happen all at once. Contractors tend to want everything yesterday, whether they need it or not. I save you from stress & angst from being overwhelmed. I can save you a lot of money from those mistakes made from pressured decisions.
Product Colour Selection & Education
Understanding how Pantone™ & the major paint companies decide the colour of the year is a very precise process. I do a colour trend workshop yearly & teach colour workshopping to corporate employees & individuals . Understanding the process along with colour theory, psychology, & physiology is important. Once you understand it, you can make choices with confidence! Design will never work unless you understand COLOUR FIRST.
