Simplified Creative ServicesTM
I am an interior designer, author and teacher. I help people design or re-imagine their living and working spaces and I fold in the guiding principles of my book Strength and Simplicity 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art.
Quiet beauty that’s not distracting but alluring and awake. Practical functionality that’s attractive and at times delightful and sensual.
I am a designer of an experience. My goal is to create a look and feel naturally attuned to a space and its dream. I take a house or a brand’s essence, its DNA and then craft it into a three-dimensional environment. A wholesale showroom, a retail store or an e- commerce website design, a living room, a bedroom. I extract true purpose. I am hands-on from start to finish of any project I take on. My mission is to offer clients extra-ordinary service while providing attractive solutions to any problem or dilemma.
While my focus is interior design and product presentation my clients often note that they experience guidance, direction, insight and care that always goes above and beyond their expectations. My goal is to produce beauty married with ease all done with sense of humor.
I am a STORYTELLER. Always identifying the right object or piece of furniture or graphic detail to accentuate and never distract. When I write I am careful and measured. I pray that one day I can say the same for the words I speak.
I have to hear music inside before I put pen to paper. This is the very foundation of my book. The sounds I heard inside became the words I wrote- Strength and Simplicity 100 Ways to Live Your Life as Art.
My clients say I draw the viewer closer and explain or produce a feeling about something that is often beyond words. When part of a large team my clients appreciate my ability to extract only the best and most alluring ideas from the often-disparate groups of people involved.
I’m very grateful to have learned the power of editing from my mentor, American fashion designer Calvin Klein.
I am a TEACHER of marketing, product merchandising and a certified yoga instructor. In my executive training seminars at some of the most highly regarded schools in the world, weekend yoga and life workshops and through this website I share my guiding principles of keeping things simple. I have worked remotely, much of it at home since the birth of my business in 2003. I am no stranger to discipline or figuring out how to fix a printer. I incorporate wisdom drawn from many years working abroad and in New York City in highly competitive and sometimes unfriendly environments. With so much movement and sometimes adversity I had to turn inward to find my “true north” and from this place emerged SIMPLIFIED YOGA INSTRUCTION ™
