Bienvenue ! Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here !
I’ve always had a passion for Design, in fact anything creative. I come by it naturally I suppose, with two very creative parents; my father an artist and photographer and my mother a writer and floral designer. Years ago I paired my education in design with my love of painting and started my own decorative painting company, Posen Design. I worked closely with clients helping them update and decorate their homes. Later I joined forces with my husband, an independent contractor,and together we began designing and renovating homes; work that still continues today.
Those experiences enabled me to hone my skills in design and strengthen my love of interiors and architecture. I admire many different styles.
I like to pair opposites together; an old photograph next to a polished vase.
I love a Chesterfield Sofa, weathered stone walls and anything with a
patina. I treasure the character and warmth of and old home and
I embrace the smell of a burning fire.
I tend to think “outside the box” sometimes to a fault. I was born a “DIY-er” (even before it was called that). I may not follow the rules all of the time but I take pride in listening to you, the client. I enjoy helping you infuse your own style and aesthetics into a design, whether it be salvaging a cherished piece of furniture or renovating an entire room. After all, successful design should be an extension of your personality, your characteristics and should
function for your lifestyle…not mine.
When I’m not designing you’ll likely find me painting, sewing or blogging
about my latest project. I enjoy good wine & fine friends and I love
when the seasons begin to change.
