as monica puts it, “just like a good host my job is to anticipate the needs of my clients and I spend a lot of time and energy understanding their lifestyle and their habits. my sensibilities lean toward fusion of modern and contemporary with everlasting elegance of old. and while others may think of it as a combination of tradition and funk, i am happy calling it contemporary classic”.
“for me details are more important than broad strokes. nothing works without details. ‘a good space is like a beautifully composed piece of music where a single jarring note can turn the piece into cacophony; that is why i insist on being a part of each and every aspect of that particular space from fragrance to music, to the staff’s uniform, their training and even their bearing.”
