How would you describe your style?

We are known for blending old with new to create timeless spaces with a fresh feel. Our clients  come to us looking for the “Boxwood Look” which I can best describe as a mix of traditional  prints and patterns, color, and antique pieces layered in. I am a bit more inclined towards  maximalism, personally; however, we design spaces ranging from mid-century modern to  farmhouse. We always start with architectural integrity and work interiors into the space in a  seamless way. 

What is your go-to paint color and what types of stone do you gravitate toward to  match this?

I absolutely love the color Peignoir by Farrow & Ball, it’s a dusty pink that I love using anywhere  from a dining room to a bathroom. It’s subtle and understated with just a whisper of color.

Favorite part about interior design?

Having the opportunity to help our clients bring their vision to life, with a little added Boxwood  flair is so much fun for me. The relationships we develop with our clients often span many years,  and that is hands down my favorite part.

Favorite trend(s) of the year?

I love seeing interesting cabinetry make its way into the main stream. People are beginning to  see there’s so much more than just a shaker cabinet.

What surface material are you or the majority of your clients into right now?

The majority of our clients opt for soapstone or marble, it’s really what we are known for. We  use natural stone exclusively within our projects, which is simply a part of our overall aesthetic.
