It’s summer, so how do you create the perfect area to relax after a long day?

I love to both cook and eat. I have a stone patio off my dining room that is covered in shade and surrounded by the sweet smelling flowering trees.  I cook my meals outdoors on the BBQ and sit and relax with a glass of wine!

What is your favorite room in the house to retreat to? 

In the summer, it is always one of many outdoor rooms. My property has various small garden vignettes with seating.

You do a lot of custom work for clients, what are some things to consider when having custom furniture created? 

Understanding what is being presented.  It is hard for some clients to visualize custom pieces. Whether it is the overall look or the finish or the design. I try my best to provide examples to help visualize. But so much is reliant on trust.

You have a great sense of style what new trends are you seeing in home accessories now? 

Marble Stone Glass or Resin Metal and Leather. Any combination of one or more of these materials is amazing. The trick to accessorizing is balance and proportion.  

What’s your favorite outdoor dining spot in Greenwich? 

Mediteranio, the food is perfect and the staff is amazing!
