What do you do?
“We do interior design, purchasing, and coordination for hotel and residential projects throughout the country. We have completed several projects overseas, too.”

How does your work influence what you wear?
“I think they influence each other. My fashion and design sense are both on the creative side. I love unusual color combinations, especially in unexpected uses. I reflect that in what I wear, as well as my design projects.”

What inspires your style choices?
“Nature, especially, inspires my color selections. There are so many interpretations of colors everywhere we turn.”

How do you accessorize?
“I like to mix and match. Some pieces I have had for years, and I’ll pull them out to put with an outfit. It’s fun and makes both new.”

How would you describe your style?
“I would describe my style as edgy sophistication.”

Do you have a go-to look?
“My go-to look is one of sophistication, comfort and not ‘overdone.’

Favorite clothing stores?
“One of my favorite stores is Carla Martinengo. She has an eye and certainly knows what would compliment my style when on a buying trip.

What do you never leave home without?
“I use a great leather bag I purchased four years ago from Carla. I wear it every day. I’m not one to change my purse with every outfit.”
