A little about me . . . 

I am decorator, stylist, market editor, writer and occasional event planner whose work has spanned the tiny (diamonds) to the giant (celebrity weddings). As a visual storyteller, I like to weave references far and wide to create impactful imagery. My work has appeared in national publications including ELLE DECOR, Veranda, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Weddings and Living, Whole Living, and Mpls.St.Paul magazines. I am obsessively attentive to detail, hopelessly romantic about the stories of objects, and have a deep appreciation for thoughtful and original design. I especially love the muddy in-between colors of early Flemish paintings, running, French Modernist furniture designs (Prouvé, Perriand, Royère, Frank), Cy Twombly, cooking, kissing, frites et moules, Icelandic poppies, sapphires, baby animals, ballet, chintz, heraldry and the beach.
