Design is all around us. 

Interior Design is about how we live and about what we want to see, touch, and feel when we are in our most precious, secure, and nurturing environment.  The home serves many purposes.  It is where we relax and retreat alone, as well as a place to celebrate and enjoy the pleasures of life with friends and family.  Thus it is influenced by all that we see and do in our daily lives - fashion, television and movies, journalism and literature, food and restaurants, our jobs, our travels, and the natural environment (or lack thereof) in our immediate surroundings.  I am constantly inspired by all the stimulus around me.  The key to joyful, lasting design is to embrace your current passions and influences without becoming a slave to trends.
