The key to design is to understand the client: their wants, desires, aesthetic, how they entertain, how they live, and how they would like to live. These intimate details create a portrait of the client from which we build our design for spaces that are deeply personal, such as the master suite.

We are often asked about design trends, which are important from a resale point of view, but this perspective is always balanced with our understanding of the client.

Whether the preference is for something as simple as facing the bed toward a spectacular view instead of a wall or TV, as common as having a cozy retreat from a bustling and growing family, as trendy as providing separate his and hers master baths, or as complicated as creating the perfect spa-like bathroom with a freestanding marble tub, our approach is always the same: Focus on the client.
