Throughout our lives, we collect images that represent to us sophistication, comfort, adventure,
nostalgia, and beauty. Inspiration many times comes from varied sources: a hand-crafted chair, a graphic print, an ocean wave, a vintage time-piece…
Colleen’s approach to design always begins with an engaged conversation with the client in order to understand her client’s wish-list and the images that have inspired them. As an experienced designer with a diverse portfolio, Colleen is able to translate those images into a coherent vision customized to reflect the client’s lifestyle, creating a functionally comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing design that also complements the integrity of the architecture. Utilizing a team of skilled craftsmen in furniture, cabinetry, painting, and landscape design, Colleen transforms a design vision into reality.
In her 30+ years of design experience, Colleen has produced interiors for commercial offices, high-rise residential condominiums, single family homes, and vacation properties. Her designs have been featured in both local and national publications. From 2002 — 2003, she served as President of the Pasadena Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and has been an ASID board member since I995. As a native of Southern California, Colleen graduated from Pasadena City College and was mentored by top designers in ASID. Colleen works in the Greater Los Angeles areas, including vacation communities.
