An Open, Art-Filled Home

When I was approached by these empty-nesters to help them downsize from a large family home to a spacious apartment in a new, amenities-filled development, I was thrilled. The space was still in the process of being built, so I was able to work directly with the builder and their architect to position every wall, every hallway, every alcove exactly where we wanted. From two combined apartments, I created one completely custom, open and airy luxury home.

Central to every decision we made was the couple’s passion for art. The home had to serve as a welcoming place for their daughters and grandchild to visit, and also as a private gallery filled with paintings and sculpture. With that in mind, I led with texture and a monochromatic color scheme to give the artwork added importance.

Because the layout we created was especially open, I designed each room to flow seamlessly into the next for easy living and entertaining. With details like curved sofas to encourage conversation and pops of color to draw the eye from one area to the next, the overall space felt elevated and comfortable at the same time. From light fixtures to cabinetry, wallcoverings to fabrics, every detail came together in a totally organic, creative way.


Our homes are a reflection of who we are…they also help us become who we want to be.

Place objects that inspire and uplift you in key locations throughout your home. Also...a little Feng Shui goes a long way!
