1. What are my favorite vacation spots?
I'm not the type to lay on the beach and just relax. Years ago I had several knee and hip surgeries. I feel
a need to explore and see beautiful places around the world. My favorite spots are Prague, the Amalfi
coast, Rome and driving from LA to San Francisco.
2. What are my favorite movies?
I am a sucker for love stories and chick flicks. From The Notebook to Ghosts to Legally Blonde though I
do love all the godfather movies.
3. What is the best way to spend your day off?
For me it's all about my family. Grabbing dinner, walking and shopping with both my girls are always on
the agenda. Recently both my girls moved to new homes. Can you guess who their decorator was?
4. How did you get into interior design?
I believe artistic and creative ability is genetic. For me this is something I found later in life. My husband
owned a company in the garment center. I designed and styled his denim line. Years later I took on a
project in my own to renovate my bathroom. My friend was adamant that at 38 1 should go back to
school to study interior design. So I went back to school and found a passion and talent I didn't even
know I had. I walk into a client's home, I listen to their needs and within a few moments I can visually
see the details and ideas for the space. I love the interaction and process between the client and myself.
5. What are your favorite foods?
Vanilla, pistachio & peach ice cream, pizza and lobster. We can't forget of course a nice glass of wine.
6. What are your strengths that set you aside from other designers?
My portfolio, my positive word-of-mouth recommendations, and my happy clients.
7. What is your personal style?
Looking back over my work I've done the past 16 years, I have realized many of the pieces I select are
classic and timeless. I love neutrals, though I also like dark colors. My signature style is to always add a pop of
color and an element of surprise.
