At the age of 14 Emily fell in love with design while standing in a construction site. She grew up in a family of real estate developers in the luxury market and through the years she fine-tuned her skills in design and construction by investing in her own properties starting at the ripe age of 21 and setting record sales prices per square foot in each neighborhood she entered
Through her work she has created incredible partnerships with Developers, Builders and Homeowners by perfecting her designs and being a celebrated leader in the design industry. Recognized as one of the "best of the west" designers, she has been featured in Architectural Digest, Domino, MyDomaine, Better Homes & Gardens, HGTV Magazine and projects featured in Forbes International Properties.
Emily focusses on serving young professional families because she is one. She and her husband have two kids, Lydia & Beau, and are both family focused and business enthusiasts. She understands that your home needs to feel like you and your family, while maintaining efficiency. This is how her signature aesthetic was born: playful high-design
The family of four has made their sanctuary in the desert, but travel the world curating art and unique objects for their personal collections. This is one reason it was important for her to create a studio space in her own home – sharing the experience with her clients first-hand the intimate relationship between her conceptual designs and real life application. Her reoccurring goal is to always to surprise and delight her clients. She vets each one to ensure that they share the same passion for art + culture. She then capitalizes on her passions to create spaces that evoke conversations and capture her client’s own unique personalities. 
When she’s not eating, living, and breathing design you can find her with her family camped out in the desert riding dirt bikes, soaking up the sun, or shopping the flea markets in Paris. Her favorite quote is “I think everything in life is art. What you do, how you dress, the way you love someone and how you talk. Your smile and personality. What you believe in and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home or party. Your grocery list, the food you make. How your writing looks, and the way you feel. Life is art ”   . And she sets that intention every day.
