I launched TILE and TEXTURE in 2003, but the core concepts of this business have been evolving for over 20 years. My early passion for textiles inspired me to earn a Bachelors of Arts Degree from Purdue University in Interior Design. My interests broadened to include tile and stone while working in a custom handmade tile and stone studio in South Norwalk, Connecticut. My past experience working in the kitchen design industry offers the client an opportunity of having a tile and stone consultant work in tandem with their kitchen designer for a well-integrated design.
Currently TILE and TEXTURE offers interior design consultation for tile for kitchens, bathrooms, and overall tile needs for home renovation. My design services include custom backsplashes, paint color consultation, custom window treatments and selection of plumbing fixtures, fine art, furniture, lighting, rugs and carpet.
I enjoy working with clients to determine the aesthetic they hope to achieve, with a sensitivity to developing a narrative within the home. Educating the client on the many products and materials available is an important part of the design process. My goal in any project is to understand the inherent beauty of the architecture of a space and assist my clients in the selection of beautiful, appropriate, timeless design solutions.
