THE ELEMENT OF STORY
The seven elements of design are well known, and often referenced. We believe that “The Eighth Element” is connected to (and informs) all the others: it is the element of Story.
We also believe that too often, in our field, the heroes of The Story are the designers, not the client. So we’re intentional about getting the hero of your design story right: it’s about you, and the form-and-function balance that reflects both who you are as well as the aspirational story of you and yours — and who you are becoming.
We look forward to working alongside you to design your story.
ARTIFACTS OF LIFE
“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out.
That is not an easy job.”

If I have a hope, it’s that God sat over the dark nothing and wrote you and me, specifically, into the story and put us in with the sunset and the rainstorm as though to say:
“Enjoy your place in my story. The beauty of it means you matter, and you can create within it even as I have created you.”
