The entry of this Soho townhouse I did illustrates how design can create a passageway from urban grit to a functional, aesthetically pleasing and nurturing human space. New York traffic is ten feet away; here the reality is beauty, comfort, functionality. That soothing green suggests how in interior design we seek what nature gives: balance, harmony, wholeness. My job is to accomplish that mission, to do that with subtle attention to the way your family lives, within budget, and in a way that reflects who you are.
I find satisfaction in creating living spaces in which there is an aesthetically pleasing and comfortable balancing of color, space, material, texture and energy. As a long time practitioner of Feng Shui, I am convinced environment affects energy and harmony. In its subtle reaches, Feng Shui is the study of how to refine an environment to enhance the flow of ch'i, its life force or energy.
Some call it redesign, but that doesn't capture the freshness, and the instant gratification, of a Spacelift. Rooms you don't use or like? Try a Spacelift, which transforms your home through fresh eyes and the magic of placement. We'll create aesthetic impact by finding a room's focal point and solving problems of balance, harmony, flow, comfort. We'll shop your home and use your current décor to discover grace and charm in new formats. Wall colors if you want, further design steps if you insist, but the heart of the mission is a one-day makeover that will leave you ready to entertain that night.
Color transforms more efficiently than any other design action. I work with you to create a color composition of your home. In trying to describe that composition, we speak of harmony, balance, warmth, comfort, surprise, but those words, individually or in sum, can't capture the rightness and ease of a good color plan implemented. An effective consultation isn't rocket science, but seeing colors in their rightness is a gift and I am pleased to have it.
