About this space

"I selected a Jacuzzi® bathtub because they’re really the leaders in the wellness industry. They’re unrivaled in terms of quality and style. The Stella® bathtub, in this modern bathroom, it just adds a soft feminine touch. But if you dropped it into a more traditional interior, it could be in Chicago or New York in a very classic interior. It would give a great modern note and sometimes it just takes one contemporary piece to update a traditional interior and the Stella® bath would definitely do that."

Design Insights

"I believe in humanity. I believe in beauty. I believe in crafting spaces that enhance the lives of my clients. I believe that our physical environments have power. Creating rooms that inspire people, that elevate them, that help them live in the moment, to have meaningful conversations with their loved ones, to get a good night’s sleep…that is what inspires me: impacting people’s lives for the better."
