Philosophy

Whether you need to choose a single paint color or wish to remodel your entire home, the sheer volume of design options available today can be overwhelming.

Tina uses her extensive resources, technical expertise, and ability to listen to help clients translate their wants and needs into a beautifully realized design. She achieves a unique, creative solution to each design dilemma and manages the process to a successful conclusion.

“From the beginning, my focus is on your needs, your lifestyle, and your taste.”

An award-winning designer who is renowned for creating sophisticated, timeless, and elegant spaces, Tina and her team strive not only for beauty, but also for comfort and practicality.

Influenced by her European roots and extensive travels, Tina—a former attorney with a passion for the arts—avoids a formulaic look in favor of a richly layered approach that comes from reading the language of your home. Her legal training ensures that every project will benefit from an ideal mix of “right and left brain” artistry and professionalism.

 

“Individuality … consists not in an attempt to be different from other people at the cost of comfort, but in the desire to be comfortable in one’s own way…”

~ The Decoration of Houses by Edith Wharton; Ogden Codman

 

 

  • Tina has a keen design sense and she endeavors to ensure that her designs reflect our taste. She has access to a wonderful variety of furniture, fabrics and decorative accessories.
