How do you style your Courant charger in your home or office?
My favorite is the CATCH:3 of all the products - because I love to put my iPhone, my sunglasses and my jewelry on the tray and have it look elegant and luxurious all at the same time.
What inspired you to become an interior designer?
I was always inspired by my father who is an architect and I was always fascinated by interiors and the world within which I lived. As a child I would frequently go to open houses with my father for fun. I would study furniture placement and fabrics and I was lucky enough to grow up where my parents cared about interior design.
How would you describe your interior design style?
My style is ever evolving and tends to always encompass a parison element due to the fact that I have lived in Paris and the south of France I tend to have a more transitional aesthetic.
What have you learned about yourself since launching your own business?
Since launching my own business I have learned that there is a fine line between being a perfectionist and the need to make sure projects get done quickly. Finding the balance between those two elements has been a great challenge for me.
What trends are you most excited about?
I am very excited about the revival of the 80’s of both fashion and interior design. I would call it the new 80’s because it tends to be a more refined version of the curvy lines that were so prevalent in the decade.
Where do you derive inspiration for your spaces from?
Inspiration always comes from my travels and as well as some of the great artists of our time and European designers that i admire tremendously - such as, jean Louis Deniot. and famous architects - I am often surprised by where my inspiration comes from, because it could be something as simple a beautify packaged perform bottle.
