The Designer

"Traditional, modern, minimalist but most importantly unique designs are all on my radar."

DHD was established 15 years ago by the stylist, image consultant and former Australian magazine decorating editor.

"Listening, timing and follow through are important for project success . Through travels and research, I have observed many looks and this helps with understanding clients' needs."

"My Inspiration comes from client’s dreams, visualization skills, psychology training and knowledge of what is achievable with materials available. Observation across cultures and a deep understanding of the design business and all there is to offer is very valuable when working on proposals."

"I work with architects, builders and creative teams in many trades. Projects have taken me outside of the Washington DC area and across budgets large or small. Best results include the finished project satisfaction as well as my client's budget being met. My business is very much on a referral basis, so my client’s long-term satisfaction is foremost in my thoughts."
