Company Philosophy
"For any commission to be successful, it is imperative that architecture and interior design be cooperative.” Connoisseurship and a keen observation of classical design aesthetics are evident throughout Ms. Bell’s work, including her contemporary styled projects. Her skilled coordination of color, scale and proportion are the visible hallmarks of a designer who draws from the achievements of the past as inspiration for the future.
