Who Me?

Who Am I?
I’m All This and More!

French-born, fancier of languages and passionate about great design this is who I came to be, but it started…

At age 7 after my father passed and I was promptly shipped off to boarding school. There, I learned how to envision space beyond its confines and rooms filled with pretty things.

Once returned to my mother, she had designs for me that included the importance of forks, the quality of furniture and how to curtsy for the upper crusts. It was as interesting as mud.

But, eventually the stuff about the furniture became ingrained and I began to appreciate its beauty and strength, gilt edges or not.

At 25 I was excited to see the world so off to America I flew–the land of all things new, which equated to rebels, ruffians and bohemians (aka the rive gauche) by the upper crusts I mentioned.

I moved right into the glitz and glam mecca of Hollywood and worked for several celebrities until I ran into a tall, dark handsome fellow. We married soon after and I became the mother of two beautiful girls.

In 1989 I saw the silver lining in my childhood and put together the pieces of good measurement, vision, antique furniture and combined it with the vibrant new modern world of America.

I have loved every minute of my journey through extensive training, examinations, certifications and the sheer joy of creating beauty as seen through my clients’ eyes. There you have it: no more wondering “Who Am I?”
And now for the really boring stuff…
