1. What started it all for you?
2. What drives your creative spark?
3. Most treasured home decor item?
A long time ago my husband and I bought a rug at a store in New Orleans that has since closed. It holds a special place in my heart because it was the first thing we bought together for our apartment. It is a piece that comes with us in every move. I make sure to bring it and find a space where it can be used.
4. What’s the best advice you've ever received?
The best advice I ever received, and I think others should know is to trust your gut. This applies to both running a business and the creative side of interior design. If something feels off, don’t ignore that feeling but if something feels right but you are getting pushback, stick to your convictions. You know why you are there.
5. It's 5 o'clock at home. What would you be pouring?
After a long day I love to pour a glass of white wine. Especially when I am cooking dinner!
6. What are your favorite accounts that you follow for inspiration?There are too many accounts to name only six! I get inspiration from so many different types of accounts. It may be another interior designer or design magazine, but it could also be a travel photographer showing a corner of the world that I’ve never been to.
