We're Not Designers

It's true. Between the two of us, we have worked as lawyers, food activists, executives, and kickboxing instructors. We are not trained as interior designers.

This matters because every time we make something beautiful, we are a little bit shocked and delighted. We love it and we work for that privilege. We give each project more attention, more thought and more time, because we're truly thrilled to see the results. We hope you agree.
