What inspired this career path for you? I’ve always had a love for beautiful things, and creating a life that is centered around beautiful things is very fulfilling for me.

What is your go-to source for inspiration? New Orleans architectural styles and antique furniture hunting inspire me daily.

Tell us about your creative process. We have a whole room in my showroom that is devoted to fabric, and I usually start by combing my way through my fabric library to find a fabric that fits the client and the style of the house.

Describe your style in 6 words or less. Southern and sophisticated: timeless, tailored, elegant, fresh.

What’s a staple in your tool kit? Verellen. I always recommend refreshing a room with quality, clean-lined upholstery. Verellen is my go-to because it allows style and comfort to co-exist.

Who do you look up to in the design world? Jan Showers and Suzanne Kasler

If you could design a space for anyone, what kind of space and for whom would it be? I have an unnatural obsession with Grace Kelly, so I would love to go back in time and design her formal living room.

Tell us your favorite design-related word, phrase, or quote. Edited

Which design blog, website, TV show, or magazine would you be lost without? Paloma Contreras’ La Dolce Vita

What do you love about Viyet? I like that Viyet makes products accessible nationwide to designers and design enthusiasts alike at reasonable price points.
