Who We Are
Home should be celebrated. Indigo & Poppy is our interpretation of California Living. We strive to inform, inspire, and show you, our clients, how to create an expression of yourself within your home.
Having been in the home interiors field for over 28 years, my most important goal is to create personalized home environments— achieving that “I’m Home” feeling for you.
Our homes express the expectations and desires we each cherish. My passion for interior design stems from my love for people and the aspiration to help them achieve elegance and excellence; enhancing their own vision.
After receiving my college degree, I began my design career in Pacific Heights, San Francisco. I was mentored by a designer with high standards, and appreciation for sublime quality and a sure sense of her ability to create beauty.
Over the years I’ve continued to relish every opportunity to see my projects come to life. Each time, a unique sense of home emerges, and I am fulfilled in knowing that I have met my clients intentions.
The key word for me is harmony…ease of spirit. Our homes should support us, providing a beautiful environment which meets our every need.
Growing up I was surrounded by the rolling hills and black-sand beaches of the New Zealand countryside. My Mother’s beautiful flower garden encircled our family home, which doubled as my Father’s art studio.
I developed a passion for travel and art while living abroad in London, England; Dublin, Ireland; and Brisbane, Australia. My interest in design began with antiques and learning the story behind each piece. When I found a vintage, 1974 edition of Terence Conran’s “The House Book,” it became an immediate favorite.
For the past 10 years, I’ve been a designer in the Bay Area. My aim is to create a home that is truly reflective of my clients’ individual personality and interests. An inviting home should be designed with timeless style, comfort, and whimsy. This can be seen in the variety of styles my clients’ homes represent, from classic to contemporary, and always fun.
From my designs, to my closet, I love to live life in color! I’m a local girl, born and raised in the East Bay. I grew up working for my father’s painting business, where I learned how quickly a paint color can change the feel of a room. I fell in love with color, architecture, and design.
After receiving my Associate of Arts Degree in Interior Design, from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in San Francisco, I began working in local high-end design firm/furniture stores. In the business since 2004, I’ve created a broad range of style experience.
As a designer I strive to create fun, stylish interiors, filled with the colors, textures and pattern play that compliment your lifestyle. My attention to fine details insures a cohesive environment, tailored to your vision.
My favorite words to live by: “Life is short, go one shade darker!”
I studied design at San Jose State University. I have been designing and creating almost all my life. It is a big part of who I am and what I love.
My aesthetic is about mixing modern and vintage, juxtaposition of contemporary and classic, raw and refined, organic and structured.
My inspiration is the people I meet, the world we live in, the nature and beauty that surrounds us. I get inspired by life.
My favorite quote: “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” – Rumi
