There is a never-ending cycle of “Top Trends” lists out there, but I think we all know on some level, great interior design comes down to more than just trends.
Right now, I’m knee-deep in the creative development phase of a handful of projects. Typically, this isn’t the case — projects are more spread out. But because everything shut down abruptly last year, then surged ahead almost instantly, I’ve got several projects in the same phase.
This means my hours are filled with developing floorplans and renderings, sourcing products and finishes, and selecting the perfect design elements for each space.
