“Design is not about creating a beautiful still-life in a room. It is about creating a beautiful space to live in, one that embraces you with a sense of luxury, comfort, and belonging, welcoming you anew each time you enter.”
When asked about her signature style, Mimi thought for a moment. “It doesn’t matter if the house is a classic center hall Colonial, cozy French country, or majestic Georgian,” she said. “Whatever the style, we find a modern interpretation of it to create a stylish mix of sophistication and sensibility.” Inspired by Impressionist masters such as Monet and Renoir, Mimi uses a fresh color palette and favors clean lines in furnishings for a look that is both contemporary and timeless. Mimi believes every room should evoke a sense of belonging and contentment. Whether it is a family gathering or entertaining space or a private sanctuary filled with cherished keepsakes, the room should always draw the homeowners in.

She excels at using natural light to enhance colors and architectural elements and a touch of “smoke and mirrors” wizardry to distract from odd angles or improperly spaced windows. Mimi can create a “wow” visual impact while staying on budget by using a mix of custom and high end items with ones purchased from well-priced retailers. She can even perk up clients’ existing pieces, incorporating them into a new design scheme.
