What is the oddest request you've received from an interior design client?
Interior designers may get a bad rap but most of the time they are pretty easy to work with.
Who do you most admire and look up to in your life?

A simple pink floral arrangement will brighten any room!

Name the four people, living or dead you would invite to dinner. What would you serve?

Always wear sunscreen, wash your face before bed, and get a manicure once a week.
