Creating Space for Blissful Living

Through my work in interior design, I help open-minded individuals create space for beautiful, blissful living at home and within. I draw on decades of experience transforming functional spaces into inspiring environments that engage the senses and nourish the soul. By cultivating the connections between mind, body, spirit and space, I help my clients elevate their experience of each and every day.

Finding Your
Home within

When your home is a reflection of who you are and how you want to live, it has the power to enhance your sense of purpose and bring greater joy and meaning to daily living. Our values can be brought to life and recharged in the spaces we inhabit, so that our home serves as a sanctuary of restoration and renewal – mentally, physically and spiritually – while providing us with an experience of beauty, connection and well-being.

Having worked with Josh and his team twice previously, it was an easy decision to allow him total control and autonomy to design and furnish our new home. After setting a budget (which he hit!) and giving him the date we needed to move in, we got out of the way. Fast forward to just 11 days after our closing date, we walked into our new home feeling amazed, grateful, and rejuvenated. Our living areas were cozy and comfortable but also accommodating for visiting guests. Each bedroom was a relaxing enclave that so wonderfully reflected each family members’ personality. We are absolutely in love with our new home and every beautifully designed detail.

He has impeccable taste - finds and executes on time and on budget and most importantly he is responsive to my taste and opinions and a total JOY to work with.

Josh is a phenomenal decorator, amazing communicator, tremendous collaborator, and a very special person. If this sounds like it's too good to be true, it's not. For the renovation and remodeling of our apartment in New York City, the single best – and most important – decision we made was hiring Josh. From that point, he guided us through every tough decision (creative / logistical / financial) with a calm zen mixed with dynamic enthusiasm. We like to say he turned every difficult design decision into a "multiple-choice question," and his flexibility and understanding when things changed was paramount to keeping everything on track. We've been living in the home Josh designed for us for a year now, and we love it as much as the day we walked in. Hire Josh, and you will be happy in your home – it's as simple as that. (You'll also likely have a new great friend for life.)

Josh designs with his heart! He is one in a million! Thank you for creating the home of a lifetime. It’s hard to express how grateful and appreciative we are for your friendship.

Wellness, it is evident, goes beyond the yoga mat, the spa bathroom and the perfectly curated bedroom. It's equally about choosing colors, shapes and materials that please our eyes and soothe us when we touch them, about creating rooms and finding pieces that are unique to all of us and which tell a story, and about sourcing materials and furniture that do as little harm as possible to the planet, so that our homes can be more than just well-presented showpieces, but truly personalized havens, too.
