I also work with Realtors and their clients to help them prepare their homes for sale by preparing a detailed written First Impression Report.


Redesigning spaces started very young for me. My father was in the Air Force and we moved 17 times before I began junior high school. Each time we moved I set about decorating my room and helping my mom unpack and put together our house; whether it was military housing, a villa in Tripoli, an apartment in Ankara, or a condo in Marin county. I was always looking at home furnishing catalogues, textiles, design magazines, or repainting and refinishing furniture. Up-cycling old finds long before it was hip. My father is an artist and a musician and my mother was creative with everything she touched. I was always surrounded by beauty and creativity. I was greatly influenced by our travels,and to this day I have a passion for all objects Moroccan. As I matured, I channelled my creativity into both fashion and interior design. I love the challenge of working with a particularly difficult space, integrating clients cherished collectables, adhering to budgets and ultimately creating a naturally beautiful and harmonious environment. Every home can be beautiful.
