Thoughtful, Bold, Refined
Through an exploration of materiality, color and form, I design environments that feel effortless, timelines and layered. I want spaces to feel architectural and organic, all while balancing my clients’ own lifestyles and aesthetics.
We typically use small scale prints and patterns and then layer on them over time to add scale and build
balance. Our process was to first create an overall mood board for the full home to ensure all of the colors, patterns and textures in the space would blend together. After approving the overall look, we selected the specific tiles and then layered on a Farrow & Ball paint color to both complement and add a bit of contrast in the space.
We first selected a classic checkerboard floor that would be timeless and tie the space together. A local rep came into our office after selecting the floor tile and presented new pieces, and we fell in love with the mushroom board. The paint color was selected off of the moody grass cloth wallpaper and it really tied the entire project together.
We love that this bathroom represents our clients so effortlessly. The end result really tells a story, it blends color, sophistication and spontaneity. The space also ended up playing off of the natural beauty of the Sullivan’s Island coastal environment.
Incorporating color is all about layering. You start with more neutral tones for larger surfaces and then incorporate splashes of color and pattern in a way the client feels comfortable and confident.
