Tiffany is inspired by the belief that everything can be beautiful. She embraces colour, pattern and energy from the world around her to create original and personal designs for her clients. If art is magic, then Tiffany is its magician. She is creativity personified and the true queen of colour.
I was deeply moved by her passion for individuality in design and life. If your home is feeling lackluster and needs revitalization, this episode is for you. If you’re feeling unsure of how to inject your own personality into your space, this episode is for you too. If you love colour, authentic beauty and have your own defined sense of style then you will find a kindred spirit in Tiffany.
