About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation Interior Designer
Location Palm Beach, New York
Introduction I established my design firm over thirty years ago with two objectives: that one job should never look like another and that attention to detail would be my trademark. Whether inspired by a particular memory or just a piece of fabric, my ideas and sensibilities inform a working collaboration, so that every finished home is a distinct reflection of my clients and not simply a showcase. This has often lead me into some unexpected territory: reconstructing a baroque Italian villa on an empty Texas hillside, making an 18th century farmhouse on Cape Cod beautiful and comfortable or remodeling a 1930's townhouse in the Upper East Side. I feel as proficient working with modern as well as traditional interiors, French or English, casual or formal and find myself mixing all of them often. I was thrilled to be listed in 1988 by House and Garden as one of the "Great American Decorators."
