At the core of his work lies a sophisticated modern sensibility, tempered by respect for traditional design. This can be seen in his strong, structured interiors, saturated with texture and softened with organic forms and unexpected colors. John’s deep knowledge of fabrics, finishes and furniture, from contemporary to historical is incorporated into all his projects.

This Texas native has designed interiors for celebrities, corporate executives, and countless everyday home owners who want their personal spaces to be showstoppers. So whether it’s a Park Avenue address, a mansion by the sea or a budget conscious client, John’s vision and easy design makeover tips can make any home Instagram worthy.

John’s biggest design challenge was his own very tiny 750 square-foot rental apartment and office space located on 42nd street in Midtown Manhattan. It has a spectacular view overlooking the Hudson River. John believes, “You don’t have to live at a Park Avenue address with 4000 square-feet to live stylish”.  John’s home is certainly a testament to that. Practical furniture with dual purposes for work and living are his design secrets for small spaces.  For instance, his dining table serves as a desk and an extra kitchen counter top for prepping and serving food. In addition, John’s work area is cleverly hidden inside a gorgeous custom floor to ceiling built in cabinet. It’s also an eclectic mix of beautiful fabrics and finishes like teak, resin, velvet and mohair which gives John’s apartment a large luxurious feel. Let’s not forget the bedroom! John designed his bed to lift at the base, revealing a large hidden area to store out of season clothing and even suitcases. You can see John’s fabulous apartment apartment in the video below.
