Interior Design is the perfect job. It allows me to combine a love of art and design with my practical side. Each project - whether it is a bathroom remodel, a color consult or a new living space - is a unique puzzle. And the most important component isn’t budget or an element of the design – it is the client.
“Thank, thank you for your vision, your ability to illustrate what you see, the specifics of your ideas, and then physically implementing them. Truly magical.” This is from a recent client email. I will be the first to admit that the process of a remodel can definitely be less than magical at times. But at the completion of a project, when all the elements come together and the client feels happily at home – then I have the satisfaction of a job well done.
