DESIGN PHILOSOPHY AND METHODOLOGY

Typically a room exists with certain deficiencies that you have to work around when you are trying to find the perfect layout. With her knowledge of Feng Shui practices, Evey utilizes a variety of design techniques to feature and set specific placement of furnishings, accessories and artwork finding a certain geometry and symmetry to create the best function and feeling. Her passion is to create welcoming and elegant rooms with focus on bringing the natural elements of the external environment into the space.  This transforms space into more than just an attractive room – it becomes a catalyst to improve and balance our clients’ functionality, health and lifestyle.
