“A room should hold a person”
It has been a long dream of mine to create beautiful sanctuaries for people. The sort of home you never want to leave.
Having a father as a builder it was inevitable that at some stage my collecting of scraps from around building sites would turn into something special.
It is in my blood to create and indulge in beautiful things. Indah Island is based on an eclectic mix of old and new. The classic style of the Nantucket home meets the relaxed serenity of the Caribbean. Even the grandest of rooms need to be approachable and comfortable.
I have a love of neutral background for all your treasures to stand out. The classic of blue and moods of green. Choosing furniture is like choosing friends. It can be hard to pin point what makes a good friend, but there’s always a soulful feel about a piece that makes the best stand out.
Fabrics is another key element, divine linens, textural weaves and soft cottons. Prints and strips from Ralph Lauren and the right pop of colour. The right fabric selection can make or break a room.
Whether I am designing a house or styling a room, my job is to articulate clients needs while I amplify the design objective, so I ask questions: will that door be easy to open with a tray in your hands? Does that window height feel right? That’s how we achieve harmony in every room; I put myself in the house as if I were the owner. The flow of a house or room is so important. It is how it all feels that makes it work. A room should hold a person not alienate them. A house should be a home that you never want to leave, and when you do, you cant wait to get back to.
