This is one of the most frequent questions I get from potential clients and one that I find extremely difficult to answer. I would like to think of myself as someone who does not have a style, someone who is not limited by predefined notions of what makes a space beautiful. Beauty is all around us and transcends styles and trends.

As an Interior Designer, it is my job to help my clients realize their own personal style and to bring that style to life in the spaces we create together. In order to do this effectively, it is important that I am able to appreciate the beauty in every aesthetic, from traditional to modern and everything in between. I liken this to my role as parent. As a mother, I do not have a favorite child. I may treat my them differently based on their personalities, but I love them equally.

This Contemporary space by Singapore Architecture firm Ong&Ong is absolutely serene.

How fun is this colorful and eclectic space by Architect and Designer Sig Bergamin.

Each of these spaces is very different in style, yet they are all beautiful. The principles of design, such as balance, proportion and color, are applied in each of these examples using very different aesthetics, yet in each case the end result is amazing.

I love my profession because I have the opportunity to work with a diverse array of clients whose tastes vary drastically. I might find myself sourcing a unique antique piece one day and designing an open concept minimalist living space the next. With each of my clients, their style becomes my style as I help them bring to life their vision of how they intend to live in their home, what they want it to look like, and most importantly, how they want it to feel. So, what is your style?
