I’ve been a follower of interiors and architecture my whole life. From visiting model homes in the early years of Reston, VA, the “new town” where I grew up, to building and decorating several homes for my family as an adult. Design is always at the forefront of my mind, and it’s the lens through which I view the world. My style is constantly evolving, and I’ve learned to never say never. Anything is possible when I get to put my own spin on it.
One of my favorite quotes is by Voltaire, “Originality is nothing but judicious imitation.” It’s kind of a philosophy of mine. With everyone whose path crosses mine, whether a casual acquaintance, a close friend, or a family member, something about their style speaks to me. Maybe a way of hanging artwork, a lighting mixture, or a color pallet. It is absorbed into my home decorating style, whether I’m aware of it or not. A little piece of each person, making up who I am. My originality comes from the mix of styles I’ve come across, and how I interpret them to form a unique new vision all my own. I like that.
