To me, good design realises the potential of any space. It involves considered choices teamed with a sense of bravery. As a designer, I have a strong understanding of how interiors come together, from the architecture of a space to the soft furnishings that fill it. Colour palette, material choice and finishes are all equally important – each element is essential to creating one cohesive look that is both functional and resolved.
On a personal level, I have an innate appreciation for a range of design periods and styles. For me, spaces truly work when balance is created through contrast. They should tell a story about the people who inhabit them.
As an interior designer, I am required to design ultimately for my clients. As a manager of designers, I am required to lead and support a team of talented professionals. Today, contemporary design should encompass several key issues, financial, social, and importantly environmental, all of which need to be addressed by client and designer together.
