A New Sense of Design Space

Falling fast into the new year and settling into a new space in the city of Santa Fe, I was overcome with a sense of blessing with interior design projects beginning and ending. As I set up my new interior design studio I had finally arrived home at Trailhead Design Source. The feeling of community of neighbors and activity is truly inspiring on a daily basis. The aroma of foods from my next door neighbor, Opuntia Cafe and the sounds of laughter as kids come and go and enjoy the dynamic and organic outdoor spaces caringly crafted by landscape architect and designer, Solange Serquis provide wonderful creative stimulation to my soul.

I am enjoying creating an atmosphere of spontaneity and creativity for my clients to come and play in design. Time spent in collaborative discussions of furniture possibilites, fabric stories of refurbishing old furniture relics like loveseats and chairs to conference calling clients working out design details, is where the heart of my design journey is today. Recently, finding a fun and local design collaborative with Santa Fe textile extraordinaire Aimee LaCalle adds contemporized and playful patterns to my library for residential projects and her line of wallcoverings offer bold and chic regional accents.

I LOVE to design a focus friendly and artistically vibrant sense of place for my clients. By the time the afternoon outdoor scene begins at Trailhead and I have connected the dots on design stories including a local popular hospitality project and drawing designs for old and new build residential projects it is just the time for my favorite Oolong pineapple coconut tea courtesy of Opuntia Cafe.
