If You Could Live in a Movie Set it Would Be:
Oh easy, the Hamptons home from Something’s Gotta Give with Dianne Keaton and Jack Nicholson. I also love the home from Baz Lahumann’s version of The Great Gatsby. The solarium is fabulous!

What Inspired You to Become a Designer:
I love the ability to influence my surroundings; I’ve always loved being able to control my environment. I also like to make things more beautiful.

We recently installed a custom Kyle Bunting Rug in our client’s study that I absolutely adore!
