The arts, in all their guises, have been a lifelong interest and passion of mine and inform my interior design projects. I carefully layer pieces from various time periods – often with classic furniture forms — to create spaces that are warm, supremely comfortable, with the aspiration they will transcend time.

InCollect, a new and very handsome on-line destination for enthusiasts of art, antiques and design, asked me to browse their collections and select items that appealed to my aesthetic. Here are some of my selections….
