Design Life: A Year In Review

Happy New Year! Looking back, 2016 was very good to me – full of wonderful projects, adventure, and travel!

2016 Highlights:

Projects of note include #allthatglossandglass, a Woodside remodel of a couple’s forever home; #modernmixitup, a Palo Alto remodel for a vibrant young family; and #housefullofreaders, a transformation of a 1930s home on Christmas Tree Lane in Palo Alto with new furnishings and fine art. I am so thankful for clients that invite me into their lives, trust me with their design process, and become friends.

I love being an interior designer in the San Francisco Bay Area, but trips to other fab locales always spark new ideas. Travel to Chicago, Seattle, and Palm Springs Modernism Week invigorated me and provided me with endless inspiration.

Finally, #RMHStanfordbyMMID, where I designed three rooms for Where Home Has a Home, the new Ronald McDonald House Stanford, still makes me smile.

Wishing you all a joyful, colorful, and authentic 2017!
