The Elements of Style

When designing the interiors of a home or workspace, quite often a blend of materials, yield a compelling and cohesive look. I find combining a mix of natural elements makes for the most visually interesting rooms.

In my designs you will almost always feel an element of Mother Earth. The root of my designs begins with natural basics, such as woods, stones and metals, which offer any space simplicity and elegance. A gentle equilibrium of design is balanced by choosing natural features to warm modernity and soften straight lines.


Design Tip

Stick with a natural canvas, to allow the surroundings to take center stage.
