What (or who) made you want to be a designer?
I've always loved creating beautiful spaces. I can still recall my room as a child. It was yellow and white with a calico floral wallpaper and yellow and white ruffled bed spreads. It was my happy place. In college, my room was awarded Best Decorated Dorm room two years in a row and was also the room the dorm director used to tour prospective students through. There were very early signs that this should be my career. It took me some time, but I finally made it.
What is your favorite color palette right now? (can be paint color, PMS color, or whatever!)
I'm loving soft muted shades of purple right now. It's a pretty versatile color that plays well in so many color combinations.
What is one thing that will never go out of style?
Furniture with classic lines and a good sunburst mirror.
What is one thing you wish would go out of style!?
Gray everything.
When choosing hardware for a project, what is typically your metal of choice?
I love warm golds. It's a classic finish that I think is always in style in a more traditional context. 
Where do you go to for inspiration?
Art, textiles and nature are all huge sources of inspiration for me.
Where are you traveling next?
I don't have anything booked yet, but I'm dying to take my first trip to Italy.
What was your very first car?
Toyota Celica (hatchback)
Who is your Style icon?
Jackie Kennedy. I'm kinda old school.
Who is your favorite band/singer?
What is currently in your shopping cart?
Outdoor patio lights. I know, a bit random but I love time at home and anything I can do to create ambiance and greater enjoyment at home...I'm ALL IN!
If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?
Follow you dreams. Forget about what others think, suggest, recommend and follow that yearning inside you.
