How would you describe your interior design style?

Collected traditional with a modern punch!

You are a pro at seamlessly incorporating lively pops color into your projects. How do you ensure the rooms still look cohesive?

We love to start a project with textiles to ensure that color and pattern are at the forefront of the design. Working off of the textiles we aim to find pieces that will balance the pops of color so that they are not overlooked. A neutral base often intimidates fellow color lovers but it's often what's needed to let those impactful elements shine!

You recently designed a gorgeous room featuring the Bradley Bumper Chaise Sectional in Luxe Velvet, Olive along with the Milla Swivels in Bungalow, Marine. Walk us through the design process!

White walls, a natural fiber rug, and neutral case goods for the most part, were the canvas and from there we took the opportunity to go all out on upholstery. Our client on this project is an artist who wanted no shortage of color. The Bradley Bumper Chaise Sectional was the perfect size for a house that is often filled with grandchildren and the Luxe Velvet, Olive is beautifully rich but reads as a neutral in this space full of art - making it ideal for layering patterned pillows. The Bungalow fabric was one we had been itching to use - we love the large pattern and the interest it adds in front of the white cabinet.

Favorite places to find design inspiration?

My family and I spend a lot of our free time outside in the garden - planting and reimagining how we use our outdoor spaces and so often those are the days that leave me the most inspired. I also love to sit down with a large stack of design or garden books. Even the ones I've read one hundred times, I almost always walk away discovering something new.

Favorite wall paint color(s) at the moment?

One of our all-time favorite neutrals is Wind's Breath by Benjamin Moore but our current favorite is a punchy purple from Farrow & Ball called Brinjal!

Favorite Item you are gifting this holiday season OR item you have on your wishlist?

I snagged a Staub Cast Iron Tall Cocotte a few years ago and I love the way it looks on my stove top while also being so functional and frequently used! Gifting a few of these!

Go-to holiday recipe?

This Better Homes + Gardens apple pie with a crumb topping! I like to sub a whole lot of extra cinnamon for the nutmeg!

Dream travel destination?

I'd love to eat my way through the southern coast of Italy!

Book you are reading or TV show you are watching at the moment

At this time of year, I have The Family Stone on repeat while thumbing through old Martha Stewart and Terrance Conran books that I've been collecting second hand. I love how both them blend form and function so perfectly.
