"Decorating is autobiography" - Gloria Vanderbilt

I can help you curate your life by creating spaces that will reflect your journey and tell your story.  
Whether you have a room that just needs a light refresh, or a total makeover, no job is too small.
. My purpose is to bring YOU into the design, not to impose my aesthetic.

About Me


I began my career in Museum Administration, and have worked in an ethnology, science, and art museums. I love to travel and have lived in 3 countries, which gave me an appreciation of many different styles. After years of being a full-time mom, I channeled my love of material culture and creativity into interiors; I've helped build, decorate, and/or renovate including Cape Cod style, Transitional, Spanish Mediterranean, and Mid-Century Modern homes.

I am based in West Hartford in central Connecticut covering CT, MA and parts of NY.

This zen-inspired master ensuite adjoins an Asian-themed master bedroom in a midcentury modern home. 

As you enter, there is a sliding door on the left, leading into a dressing room, but the first thing you’ll notice is a luxurious freestanding soaker tub, accented by a western red cedar-paneled wall and an asian-style teak stool. There is also a separate tiled shower, and a private water closet with a sand-blasted glass sliding door.

I designed the vanity inspired by midcentury modern design: the lower drawers and doors have big bold square pulls, while the tower is ‘touch to open,’ with one hinged left, and one right. The 3-dimensional blue tile reminds me of Bitossi ceramics, and the custom “eclipse” mirrors & spherical pendant add a little drama.

Master Bath mid-century modern.jpg



This guest bathroom was inspired by the scuba diving family’s love of the ocean, and a trip to Barcelona.
In contrast to the bold square drawer pulls in the master bath, I opted for ‘touch to open’ here to allow the beautiful grain of the walnut veneer to shine. The backlit LED mirror frame lights up - both can be lit simultaneously (as pictured) or lit independently. The backsplash tiles (which also accent the shower) glow in the dark - great for late night bathroom trips. The Gaudi-designed tile depicts sea creatures; the waterfall shower with frosted glass subway tiles, features a whimsical octopus shower drain.  The walls are painted a luminous shade of white, and the ceiling is painted a soothing aqua. Fun aqua and teal boho towels and teal seaglass counter accessories add splashes of color.



This transitional kitchen in Massachusetts features black granite-topped white cabinetry along the perimeter, with a white granite-topped black island (which also featured a microwave drawer).  The black antique-looking range and hood (an homage to the owner’s Nonna’s home cooking) are an interesting contrast to the other stainless appliances and industrial laboratory stools.  The kitchen connects to the family room, so we carried the same hardwood floors throughout.




The black, white and red color scheme of the transitional kitchen is carried through to the dining room, with its black and white leather chairs and red walls.  The owners’ love of wine from the butler’s pantry, is reflected in the artwork: the framed poster on the left is a souvenir of a favorite restaurant in Paris, and the original painting on the left tells the family “story” as if it’s a wine review.




This California backyard “resort” was updated with stamped concrete stained a terra cotta color to remind the owners of a Sedona vacation.  It’s textured for safety (there’s a pool), and it’s whimsically accented with stamped imprints of lizards.  The stucco fireplace is accented with handmade Mexican tiles.  The bar area features a round dining bar, an under-counter refrigerator, built-in grill, and a tv (!).  There’s also another tv to the left of the fireplace.




The homeowners are wine lovers - especially California wines.  We collected wine crate tops from some of their favorite wineries and had them installed here as a backsplash.
