“Design is about love. It is pouring your heart, soul and energy into creating an object, space, or experience which brings excitement to someone’s life. It’s like cooking, creating dishes that heighten the senses with something savory, something sweet, something bright. Setting the table for the feast, you’re creating a place where your passion adds richness to the lives of those around you.”
