Welcome to My Portfolio of Work

Over the past 18 years I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects including residential and commercial design.

While working as a project architect I developed an interest in the architecture of the interiors and interior design.
I pursued a career that would allow architecture and interior design to work together.

Now I am managing an interiors department in an architecture firm located in Washington, D.C.

Furniture Design- Go Custom!

Not only do I love interior architecture, but I also like to promote designing a special furniture piece for your home.  Something that is unique and also a conversational piece.  I often like to design these pieces while working on the millwork of a project, during the preliminary design phase, but you can also add select pieces to your home at a later date. 

Here are just a few of our special custom furniture pieces.

All About Bathrooms

There are so many creative opportunities with in a bathroom. I personally love to mix in stone and glass tile accents, but it is also important to keep in mind the overall design of the room.

These bathrooms included custom vanities

Our goal was to create a comfortable and welcoming Family Vestibule using repurposed materials, antiques, and environmentally friendly products.

Remember The Details

Here are some images of Custom Millwork.  It is important to remember the details of the interiors.  At CDC we offer Interior Architecture as an additional service.  Interior Architecture includes custom millwork, custom built ins, and all other specialty interior details. It happens to be one of my favorite phases in design because I have the opportunity to work closely with the architect to create unique and exciting environments.

Remember the Details
