Time Travel in Design: Mixing Traditional & Contemporary Elements

Trinity office

What Inspires Me:The photo attached is of a music director’s office I designed in Fairfield,Connecticut. What I find inspiring is the mix of elements – traditional and contemporary, the meaningful color (Benjamin Moore Mozart Blue), and the personal touches that allow the client’s personality to shine in his office space. What I found most inspiring of all was working with such a wonderful, warm-hearted and creative client!” – Catherine Avery
