What do you love most about being a local business?
Having grown up in town, being a local business owner makes me feel all that more connected to the community. Duxbury is so tight knit, and I love that there is a network between my clients and I that goes way back, as well as shared common goals for the town. One of which is historic preservation, which is an intention I keep in mind in the homes I work on and when conceptualizing a space. For me, part of design is about integrating the past into the present, and finding ways to sustain and treasure what we have.
What distinguishes you most from your competition?
My formal design education and experience in high end residential design has instilled in me a practical and working knowledge of the process. More specifically, I have a master’s degree in Interior Architecture and years spent working for top tier Boston design firms. It took a lot of work to get where I am, but my fine tuned knowledge of construction, design, and decor allows me to give my clients a well rounded and complete design experience. Our full service design approach ranges from pre-construction schematic development, interior architectural layouts, elevations, custom millwork design, construction walkthroughs, project management, along with finish, fixture, and furnishing selection and procurement.
Where do you find inspiration?
I gain most, if not all, of my design inspiration from nature. You can always find me walking or riding my bike around town and exploring new neighborhoods. Fresh air, greenery, and the beach energize me and give my mind the blank canvas it needs to develop my projects.
