“Passion, patience and perseverance are key to creating inspired interiors.”

Keep it simple, keep it comfortable, keep it interesting — but most of all, keep it fun. This is Jean-Claude’s approach. The result of his philosophy is evident in the refined-but-casual feel of the many interiors he has designed.

Kitchen being his specialty, Jean-Claude also enjoys designing for the whole house. His background in architecture fuels his passion and results in the rave reviews of the homeowners he’s served.

Jean-Claude’s award-winning designs have been recognized in many design-related publications.


Design is so much more than drawing layouts and selecting products. It is the most visual way for a person to create an environment conducive to their lifestyle.

I try to let my work speak for itself, but when asked to describe my design philosophy, I say that my mission is to incorporate proportion, balance, function and aesthetics together to create a connection between the client and the space.

The results are different for each client, but each come away with a unique space worthy of them. I don’t want my clients to experience just another room. I want and expect the spaces I create to invoke emotion from the owners and myself. I want them to have something special.
