Design Philosophy

It's not easy to encapsulate a design philosophy into something short and portable like a Kate Spade purse, but do it my class did. For the curious, mine is as follows:

When it comes to interior design, I treat it as an integral way of life and not stage-setting. My philosophy stems from not just being eco-conscious, but earth-centered: being "green" is spiritual as well as ethical and an aesthetic. I am enthusiastic about life, and design should be deeply tied to it: organic, practical, beautiful, comfortable, edited, eclectic, playful and unexpected. I am committed to earthy design that isn't stuck in the mud, but rather evokes wonder and deep contentment. 

And I mean every word of it.
