BUILT FROM SCRATCH:
IN MY HOME AND PERSONAL STYLE, ABOVE ALL, I RELY ON THE FIVE SENSES:
Soft natural textiles, like washed linens, cozy blankets, cashmere sweaters.
Clean, simple and natural food, I want to taste each ingredient.
Music delivers the mood. From hip hop to opera, I love and listen to it all.
Triggers memory; I use candles that reflect the moment, wear perfume that states my mood and fill my home with scents that people will take with them as a reminder of their time with us.
Whether it’s layers of elaborate interest or simple modern spaces, I like it visually clean and prefer a collected home to a decorated home.
Collections tell our personal story, the things that pique my interest are those that share the common thread of design excellence – whether it’s a seashell, a sofa, or a pair of boots-the lines/color/proportion all speak to me. If you collect things you love, I believe you can make all elements work together in your own personal style statement.
Phil and I have 22 year old twins, Gianni and Nathalie. We’ve moved around a lot- from Switzerland to California. We have always loved Cape Cod and decided this would be the place to raise our kids. I enjoy moving and experiencing new places and cultures, always taking design influence from the journey. This undoubtedly, is the root of my vintage-modern-mix design style.
Old Silver Shed is a way to share what inspires me, the projects I’m working on, and engage with you. I’m so happy you are here!
