Tell us a little bit about yourself
I am an interior designer who splits time between New York and New Orleans with my husband and our eighteen month old daughter. My favorite things besides design are spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and good food and wine.
What inspired you to become an interior designer?
Design is something I have loved for as long as I can remember, I can't imagine doing anything else.
How would you describe your interior design style / aesthetic?
My style is constantly evolving but one thing that remains consistent is my love for clean, warm spaces that feel personal and comfortable to the people who live in them.
What is your favorite Courant product and how did you choose to style your Courant charger in your home or office?
I love my Courant Catch 3 because I love having a place for everything on my desk and the catch-all section is the perfect place for me to store odds and ends so that they still look beautiful and purposeful.
What trends are you most excited about?
I'm a little bit tired of the homogeneous designs I'm seeing all over Instagram and hoping that individuality and spaces that feel unique are embraced moving forward.
Where do you derive inspiration for your spaces from?
Really everywhere: nature, places I visit, designers I admire, a beautiful interiors book--my favorite thing is falling down an inspiration rabbit hole.
