As an experienced designer working on a broad range of interior environments, Monita’s passion is fueled by the opportunity to create thoughtful spatial experiences, and infuse color, pattern and beautifully designed details into projects from an intimate residence to a lively restaurant. For Monita, it’s all about making sure that everything works harmoniously together, and she loves “that details have such a large impact, down to the stitching color, trim details…the little things!”
Monita’s inspirations are wide-ranging and she draws from this vast knowledge to create personalized design experiences. She recalls the whimsical, ornate details and fun, colorful façades of the Victorian homes in her birthplace of San Francisco along with being struck by the sheer size, glamour and art deco style of the Empire State and Chrysler buildings of New York. In Seattle, she fell in love with the historic Pioneer Square neighborhood and the brick exteriors full of arched windows that make the area feel unique.
