no rules.

One of the questions that I get quite often is what my design style or philosophy is....I can safely say it's that I really don't have one. What I mean is that it's never the same. When working with clients, I feel my job is to expand their horizons and the way they see their surroundings, but never force. At the end of the day, they have to live in a home that represents them--NOT me. Each client is different and each project should reflect that. When it comes to my own personal taste, there are no rules. I am drawn to so many different types of styles that I have been accused of suffering from a bit of multiple design personality complex. Combining, mixing, editing, and always rethinking space is a thrill. Challenge yourself. Break your own rules and look at other spaces (even the ones that are "not your style") to see balance, color, layout, texture, lighting and details for inspiration towards "what works"...because, even if it's not your cup of tea, if done well, you will appreciate it and learn from it.
