Why I Enjoy Interior Design

Interior design has often been solely about aesthetics (the way things look) in the past, but now we know our choices for interiors affect our health, our moods, and productivity.

Why Am I Going Green?

Today, I choose organic, locally grown foods whenever possible. I bring my own canvas bags to the grocery store, to the hardware store, to the library, and to the mall. I use non-toxic, biodegradable, concentrated cleaners in my home, and I present environmentally friendly design options to my clients whether they are outright eco-conscious or not.
