What is the first thing you do when you get a new client?
We have a fifteen-step process that we outline from the beginning of the project to the end, so the client knows where we are in the process of completing the project. Once we have the initial consultation and the contracts signed, we schedule a Trade Day where we bring in our trade partners, review scope with the team, and do on-site measurements.
What is your favorite thing about shopping locally in Greenwich?
Besides convenience, there are high quality vendors for sourcing. We love buying accessories and art from Putnam and Mason, lighting at Circa and bath and kitchen items from Waterworks.
What kinds of things are you looking for at the moment?
Modern art and antiques to mix in with new products. We just found some large blue pottery pieces from Oomph that worked great in a new kitchen we designed.
What is your secret source?
We have an amazing workroom where we make custom window treatments, but sometimes clients are looking for less expensive fast options. I have found that The Shade Store is great for Roman shades in children’s rooms or Roller shades, either automated or manual.
What has been your best find?
Tovare Home has been a great resource for us to find that one-of-a-kind piece or to pick up accessories to fill in for projects.
In the fall, what is your favorite local haunt (market,coffee, bakery)?
We are working in Rowayton on a wonderful new building facing the water, right off the main street. I love to schedule appointments on Fridays, so that I can go to the Rowayton Farmer’s Market which is fabulous. When in Greenwich, we don’t have a lot of time, so we are always ordering from Green & Tonic for fresh local ingredients..
