One of my favorite quotes from Confucius:
' Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated'
When I approach design, I have to be centered. I have to be in a place where I can feel... that is when I can stay true to my client and I'm able to draw off their energy and how they experience life.
Design is a moment to moment process - creating spaces that celebrate the simple things in life.
Getting back to the basics... editing possessions so that one can retain what is useful and beautiful. Then one can create an environment that is calm, easy and unpretentious.
