There’s a certain bravery in what she does that verges on over-the-top, but always stands just back from the edge.
“We believe that a well designed space reflects people’s needs and way of life is one full of passionate and artistic work,” she says. “We enjoy our work, from the birth of an idea to the culmination of a story that evolves with real life interaction. Though good design never happens without inspiration and imagination, great design celebrates reality as well. We must never forget how long a client will live with our ideas.”
