As the principal of Spectacular Design, I am here to provide you with friendly professional design services customized for you & your project.

Professor by trade, I gather all the pieces and fit them together on both an intellectual and physical level. Whether the space you want to remake into your dreams is a media room, outdoor living space, kitchen, bath, bedroom, or whole house, I am here for you. My mission is to manifest your taste and your style in harmony with your architecture and your lifestyle—and make sure we both have fun along the way.

Story


Spectacular Design • View as Spectacle

I call my business Spectacular Design out of reverence for the shaping power of what we look at on a daily basis. Whether the view is through your windows or within your walls, my mission is to create a compelling visual spectacle that feeds your soul as it is viewed every day.

I grew up in Montana and still carry with me the power of a view. At 18, I launched my life as an explorer, traveling around the country and the world, experiencing views from all sorts of windows across the northern tier. I started designing spaces for other people to live in in 2003, when my parents sold their Big Sky home of 53 years to move to Portland. Concerned about feeling dislocated by grey skies and rain, my mother picked a home with windows on the sun setting over the West Hills. I applied personalized colors (Devine butter and cream, with green and raspberry for Pink and a custom red for Big Red) to frame and accent their views, creating a personal welcome and instant sense of "home."

With my partner, Guy, that same year I acquired, designed, and furnished a waterfront condo to rent out for corporate housing. One condo led to another, and soon we were operating a homemade hotel, accommodating people from all over the world. Having lived in and loved my work, tenants started hiring me to design for them, which launched my interior design studio.

The hallmarks of my design work are clean lines edited to hotel luxury with exuberant color, luxurious fabrics — leather, velvet, and linen — and natural elements of wood, stone, and metal all working together in gender-neutral, visually rich spaces that look fantastic and feel Spectacular.
