Our Philosophy

Spaces Matter. The important moments in our lives take
place in our homes, our offices, our vacation properties.
And inevitably you have thoughts about what you want those spaces to look like, feel like. So for us, the process begins by listening. You talk. About your ideas, your concerns, your hopes for what the space will be. We ask a lot of questions.


You share ideas, dreams, pictures, descriptions of an amazing hotel you stayed at once in Florence, the Caribbean, Maine. A cottage you envisioned in a book, an office from a movie, a room in a painting by Vermeer. What we don’t do is impose our views on you. Instead, we share ideas to help organize and articulate your vision. Then we make it happen.
