Inspired by the all black finish and clean lines of the new Riobel Mythic faucet, I wanted to create a kitchen suited to a busy home chef with an updated classic feel. A combination of white and dark wood cabinetry will create a neutral backdrop with plenty of contrast and warmth. Top this off with a stunning Silestone countertop that is both durable and easy to maintain for a dramatic yet elegant look.
A Ikon 33 apron sink in Anthracite is the perfect choice to compliment both the dark countertops and the matte black faucet. The black theme continues with a simple, modern pendant that draws the eye up and creates balance.
Of course, a home chef needs stunning, high quality appliances. The La Cornue range I chose is a showstopper in black and gold for a look that both looks and feels luxurious. And last but not least, every dream kitchen needs a steam oven and coffee centre to really make cooking a dream!

In my own words…. I opened my namesake design studio in January 2009 after spending eight years with a West Vancouver firm. I have collaborated with clients to achieve a balance of sophistication and livability; producing interiors that are both timeless and elegant. My goal when working with a client is to create a home that reflects the values, lifestyle and sensibilities of the people who inhabit it. I draw much of my inspiration from the relationships I develop with my clients, many of which I am proud to say become good friends! Working from my Westside studio, my team and I work on projects of all sizes – from waterfront West Vancouver homes and cozy Pender Island cottages, to luxurious estates in San Diego, Palm Springs, Singapore and New York. To date, all of our work has been based on referrals from previous clients. This is a testimony to the organizational skills of my team, the dedication of our talented craftsmen and the pride we take in ensuring each client is thrilled with their new space. My formal education began at UBC with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations. My degree taught me how to think and to explore life. With every design project being a new and unique adventure, a thirst for knowledge and new experience is key to a successful design. 16 years ago when I knew I had found my passion in Interior Design I went back to school – this time to the BCIT Interior Design program. Although I strongly believe that life experience often surpasses education, there are certain skills that must be learned through formal training. I love what I do and the clients I work with. People hire me not only because they like my style and appreciate my design knowledge and experience, but because they like my approachable easy to work with nature, creative resources and love of life!
