Home Décor & Design Contributor

For the past 20 years, I’ve had the opportunity to express my passion through my residential design projects … drawing inspiration from boutique hotel spaces has become my signature style. I believe that life experience plays a significant role in design and that everything matters. Our homes are where we can tell and share our stories. So you won’t be surprised to hear that my story started during an anniversary trip with my husband in a beautiful hotel off the island of Anguilla. As we gazed around the gorgeous property capturing many great memories, we kept asking ourselves, how can we bring some of this experience back with us? It was then the concept of Hotelements was born and we have been following that passion ever since. If you share our excitement for hotel design, join our journey as we show how these inspirational experiences influence how we live and entertain at home. Remember, a ‘hotelement’ can be anything … what’s your favorite hotelement? I want to know! Stay connected to learn and share! Be Inspired!


Happy 2015!  Still waiting for your ‘wake-up’ call to realize it’s a new year?  Are you welcoming…
