About Me


I began my design career in 1985 designing model homes for Bay Area developers.   I assist clients with paint color palettes, basic decorating, and remodeling from concept, to blue print, to move in.


The styles of homes I have worked on range from Tuscan, Farmhouse, Mediterranean, to Craftsman.  My goal is to bring projects in on budget and narrow down the choices for my clients.


In 2001, HGTV producers were looking for Bay Area Interior Designers to be featured on one of their episodes.  I was honored to be one of four interior designers chosen.   Please see my video page to see excerpts from the HGTV episode.



I have incorporated my name into my business so that I am always reminded to work with integrity, discipline, and determination. 


My motto is when the color is right you will feel it!

         Frequently Asked Questions


Q. I have never hired an interior designer before because I am afraid a designer will try to force their personal style on me, and be too intimidating to work with.


  A. Forcing a style on somebody goes against my principle.  I am not there to judge anyone for their style or budget.  My job is to guide clients into a cohesive look and keep them from making costly mistakes.  Since I don’t sell product, I have no bias on what people spend.





  Q.  Do you ask for a retainer or a contract? 


    A. No. Clients pay as they go and either party can choose to discontinue working together at any time.






Q. Can I contact your references?


A. Yes! And I have many! Please email me for a list of references.




Q. What is your favorite type of project?


  A.  I love to work with clients who want to incorporate some of their existing pieces into the new room.  As an avid flea market shopper I love using pieces with history and personal meaning.


Q. Do you work weekends?


  A.   After over 30 years in business, I no longer work weekends so that I can spend more time with family, pursue hobbies, and volunteer in my community. I do work evening when needed.


Q. What are your favorite colors to work with?


  A.  I love working with greens, blues, various shades grays (greige) taupes, and aubergine.  I am heavily inspired by nature, not trends, and the colors seen in the beautiful California sunsets.
