I have a passion for homes in general, from outside to inside.
Transform a home with different styles is beautiful to me. I have a certain style in my house but I love other styles as well. I also love the challenge to see what the client wants and to know what her or his vision and style is, from what they wear and what colors make them happy. In this way I adapt their thoughts and go with their ideas and create an appropriate scenery.
I like to transform spaces and make them the best to what the client style is. It is like making a painting, I enjoy it this way very much.
How I Got Started
