Hometown | Chicago
Interests | From a young age I have had a passion for all things creative and have been involved in art, design and theater. I love traveling, experiencing different cultures, and seeing all the world has to offer. My family and friends are very near and dear to me, and I enjoy spending time with them and my two puppies.
Design Background | I got my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from Harrington College of Design, and have since worked in various aspects of the design industry. Over the past 13 years, my focus has been in Kitchens, Wardrobes and Home Living.
Inspiration | Living in a city that is known for its rich architectural history, I am constantly inspired by those who have made Chicago globally recognized for its Architectural achievements. Many times the most amazing designs can also be the simplest ones. This ties back to the principal of form following function which deeply resonates with me and heavily influences my design process. I am also very inspired by fashion and industry legend Coco Chanel, whose designs are widely considered classic, elegant, sophisticated, and timeless. These are the same concepts I love to incorporate in my designs to create a space that will stand the test of time and be beautiful for many years to come.
Favorite Finish | It’s hard to choose one favorite material. It’s a really a pleasure working with the versatility of the Eggersmann and Schmalenbach product. The possibilities are endless! As each project comes together in design and finish selection, I find myself falling in love with the different combinations developed for each unique client and their space.
