Vintage Charm


I love introducing a little vintage charm in my design work. Sometimes a client’s passions will inspire that special item. Other times, it may be a response to the home’s surroundings.

Either way, I’ve found that vintage pieces are great for telling a story. Plus, they can relax a formal look and give depth to rooms in need of architectural interest. By using a neutral base, these pieces feel curated rather than cluttered.

Colorful buoys in my clients’ pool house reflect their thorough enjoyment of waterside living.

All the best,
