BLOG

Welcome to my design blog! I design spaces for amazing clients in Lafayette, LA. Here I’ll share information about products that I love, project development and what I believe it takes to craft a timeless home that shows your own point of view. Follow in 2018, as I post about designing and building my own home!

Point of View

I have it. You have it. We’ve all got it. Even if you ignore it…you’ve still got it. It’s as unique as you fingerprint. Always evolving, highly subjective and extremely personal.

We all have a POINT OF VIEW.

In this blog I’ll be sharing my own point of view and writing about my experiences as a design professional, products that I love as well as ideas about designing + building a timeless home. In 2018, I’ll also be finalizing the design for my personal home and sharing the progress here. 

In my design practice, I have been so fortunate to collaborate with incredible designers that have shared what they know and pushed me to be better. I’ve worked with craftsmen and women who offer their valuable experience so that the current project and the next project will be better.  I’ll be sharing more about my education and early career because they profoundly shaped who I am and where I am today. All the way through my career, I’ve had clients who believe in my ability to transform their ideas into structures that speak to them and feel personal from the very first day. As you look through the website portfolio page, you’ll see that no two projects look the same because each site, each client and each project are different. 

You might be thinking because I design professionally, I should be able to design for myself, right? Well, it’s really not so easy. For all of the times I have guided clients through the process, I am now the one in the hot seat. It begins with defining the lifestyle that I want and then cultivating a design to support the daily life rituals that I find meaningful. Make one good decision and then another. That's the method I use and it works! 

Today, on Thanksgiving, while you have a few minutes to yourself. Take a look around your home and consider whether or not it represents your current point of view. Maybe it does, YAY! Maybe it speaks to who you were at one time. Maybe it could use a a bit of a shake up! In future blogs, I’ll be showing ideas about how to transform a space with sweat equity by reusing what you already have in your home. The bottom line is, I want you to think about all of the choices that shaped the space you live in, work in and play in. It’s going to be fun! 

You've got a POV. I've got a POV. The question is what are you going to do about it? 

I say it’s time to share it with the world!
