When dealing with the arrangement of complex structures such as commercial or custom – residential, I have always been fascinated with the overall technique behind the design, and by their presence. I am beyond privileged to have the opportunity to work on significant projects to see the transformation from start to finish. Notably, I am currently working on an extraordinary design project located at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. I am excited as the lead principal interior designer and to work with a dynamic design team.

There are no words to express my gratitude for God blessing me with a gift to do what I am passionate about, which is to design aesthetically pleasing, and functional spaces. I get a chance to splash my signature touch on the exterior as well as throughout the interior. Moreover, this is a unique project with many different levels and is extra special to me because environmentally friendly elements will be a significant part of this home, which will be a tremendous benefit to the clients now as well as in the future.

There is so much going on, but the most important is making sure that communication is clear to all individuals involved because, with a variety of different jobs performed by highly skilled individuals, when a change occurs, the need to know is highly critical. Also, even though there are different parts of a design project, I am enjoying every moment of the process, which includes down to the smallest details.

These images show the transformation that has taken place since Phase 1. So far, there is a whole lot, and I love how the details such as the dome ceiling are coming together, as well as the many windows, which will give way to ample natural lighting.
