My Approach Is This: When I Design I Want To Create An Experience. The Person I’m Styling For Wants To Express A Certain Feeling Or Emote A Specific Desire, And I Love Working With Each Client To Translate Their Creative DNA. I Tend To Be More Playful Than Formal, More Relaxed Than Serious, But Always Complimentary To My Client. I Mix Styles And Textures, And I Like The Environment To Help Determine The Shape Of What I Create. For The Past 20 Years, East Coast To West Coast, I’ve Been Designing Florals And Event Venues, And Homes Ranging From Mountain Bungalows To Coastal Interiors.

 

I Moved From Boston To Ventura County Three Years Ago. Met A Local Guy, Fell Hard In Love And We Married In Big Sur Last Year. Forging His International Wanderlust And My Love Of Design, We Are So Thrilled To Bring You Forage Ojai.
