    Princess’ Paradise

    My partner Heidi Cole and I have a listing in Wellington at 2509 Stonegate Drive. Located in the heart of the equestrian capital, this home has over 2000 square feet, four bedrooms and a pool on a private lake! The house has been beautifully and uniquely decorated by the owner. Each time I’ve shown this property the […]

This is my […]

    Recent Kitchen Project

    Traditional styling and rich materials are the strength of this elegant kitchen. You will never see superfluous elements such as ornate carving and overstated hardware in my work. As you can see, it is not necessary to do that and achieve the level of elegance you are looking for.

    Idlewild’s Club House Ceiling

    How cool is this? This is an interior shot of the Idlewild stables club house at Indian Mound. The light fixture is truly magnificent! The entire structure is made from Balinese teak and architectural remnants salvaged from buildings on the island. The more I see, the more I want to go to Bali.
