In 2001, Heather moved to Durham NC from NYC, where she had attended Parsons for interior design and honed her skills under the tutelage of French designer Robert Couturier. The change prompted Heather, who then opened her own firm, to fine-tune an ability working within a variety of interior styles and settings...from French Modern to Southern Traditional. She has happily developed an accessible, signature style which combines practicality (kids, pets, and red wine are facts of life!) with a variety of sophisticated surface texture - plaster, hide, velvet, linen - and extraordinary lighting. Heather's belief in organic ornamentation (that nothing made by man is as beautiful as that found in nature) helps define her spaces as living and subtly grounded.
