As a designer, my philosophy is simple: Create the best possible space for my client’s taste and lifestyle. Learning how you live, work, and relax in your home allows me to design a space that is not only beautiful and timeless but functions for your everyday life.
As a custom kitchen and bath designer of 14 years, I pride myself on creating functionally beautiful spaces for my clients. With a background specializing in construction and project management, I lead my customers through the entire process; from consulting to measuring, designing to ordering, straight through to installation. I can provide insight on today’s trends or everyday classics. With exceptional product knowledge and interior design expertise, I can help you make your dream space a reality.
Prior to going into the field of Interior Design, I was a Professional Chef for 16 years. I have always enjoyed creating beautiful food and spaces for people to enjoy, and help them become more relaxed and comfortable in their space. It should go without saying that it was a seamless intermeshing of skills and methodology from culinary arts to Interior Design, to create a very efficient and functional layout in which to create in, whether it be a bathroom or a kitchen.
The primary goal as a Kitchen, Bath, and Interior Designer, is to provide a talent for envisionment to assist people in choosing finishes, cabinetry, tiles, fixtures, flooring, lighting, counter tops, and much more to create a comfortable, warm, and safe environment to live and grow in. It is my goal to provide you with honest input and to take into account your individual likes and dislikes, and make your design dreams come to fruition. I can create floor plans in our 3-dimensional computer program, provide 3-D renderings to help you envision the space better. By utilizing technology and an eye for detail, you will have a full understanding of the design chosen with minimal surprises.
As a Designer, I am a problem solver. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the National University of Cordoba, Argentina, where I was born, and took post degree courses in Barcelona and Madrid. Having an Argentine mother and a Spaniel father gave me the opportunity to be immersed in a multicultural environment at a young age that helped me to be comfortable with different lifestyles and embracing diversity. This background gave me the gift of reflecting my clients’ personalities and needs across a vast range of styles to make the right choices for both space and their lifestyle. Bringing an analytical understanding of the structure, scale, and proportion to my designs allows me to create a space that is functional and beautiful, but most importantly I am here to listen and understand the individual needs of my clients to guide them through the process towards their vision. Motivation and dedication are huge contributing factors that I use to inspire my clients to enjoy life in a new and empowering way. When I see a smile on my client’s face looking with pride in their new kitchen, bathroom, or space in their home, I know I did a good job. Many times, I hear “thank you for coming up with a solution that I would never consider on my own”- and that is my best compliment!
