I find inspiration in the colors and patterns of nature, the waves on the beach after high tide, the colors of seashells, patterns of leaves. I also find inspiration in the work of great designers and artists who stretch my imagination with new perspectives, let me see my own work in a new light, and convince me to try something new.
I love the collaborative process between creativity and function when it comes to design - thinking about how to make a client's home work seamlessly for them while imagining different ways to do so. With a background in product design, I always want to think outside of the box, push the limits, try new things, and strive to make every design original, thoughtful, and personal.
I find design inspiration in the beautifully styled showrooms of High Point Market, in poring over samples of fabrics and wallpapers, and especially in our clients’ homes. That’s where I get a sense of how the client lives, and it’s where I encounter those architectural elements that set this home apart and spark the ideas for the design of the space.
AJH Client Liaison
I have always loved building relationships with people and have never met a stranger. Getting to know customers and learning their personal style is one of my favorite parts of my Allen and James role. I am constantly learning so much about the design world and seeing my style evolve while working here. I look forward to helping customers and clients do the same.
