A Client's Journey
One of the first steps in my design process is to ask my new clients questions about their
lifestyle and aesthetic. I need to understand their priorities – what’s important to them in daily life and especially in their home environment. Sometimes, the answers are straightforward, and sometimes, they are more nuanced. Using these insights, I envision how my design might reflect each client’s uniqueness and personal story.
In this beautiful example, my new clients told me stories of their travels. In particular, they spoke of their love for the oceans and beaches. They showed me items they accumulated during their travels that conveyed their passions and interests. Their appreciation for blue/violet and teal colors was also evident. Learning this information, I went to task.

In the photo below, notice how I designed an upscale wooden dining room wall unit to ensure sufficient space to display my clients’ collections, with quality lighting that doesn’t overpower the small room. Envisioning their travels and love of water, I designed the unit to give the impression of ocean waves.
To better reflect the desires and wishes of my clients, I further refined my design concept. For example, size and other constraints were important in creating the final product. In addition, other furniture and fabrics enhanced the entire room and the adjoining room. Existing chairs were reupholstered, and a custom table was built to coordinate with the unit. The result was a room that reflects the taste, style, and functionality these particular clients wanted.
In addition, the living area was conceived as a room for TV watching and entertaining
Piece by piece the room was built to create the vision
The final creation is a beautiful room that is pleasing to the client and unifies the space. It
provides sufficient seating and lighting, and it showcases the items that are important to my clients. Furthermore, the luxury materials on my one-of-a-kind, tailor made custom furnishings feel nice to the touch and make the clients feel special.
