Authentic elegance and beauty isn’t defined by a single element. It’s achieved through layers of design. My goal is for a space to be cohesive where all the layers come together and work as a whole.

There’s no better way to mark a special occasion than having a party; just ask any of the internationally renowned event planners, designers, caterers, floral designers, photographers, lighting experts, musical entertainers, venue proprietors or other specialists featured in the 400+ page book Art of Celebration Southwest (Panache Partners). The exquisite collection is infused with hundreds of photos of the best creations of regionally-based companies like VILLA SIENA. Published by Brian Carabet and John Shand, the hardcover book is the sixth edition of a series that is being expanded throughout North America and Europe.
Intended for a global audience, the book invites readers to catch a glimpse of some of Texas’s, Nevada’s, Arizona’s, and Oklahoma’s hottest and most exclusive, talked-about galas—birthday bashes, bar and bat mitzvahs, weddings, fashion shows, product launches, film premieres, awards ceremonies, holiday gatherings and more—through unforgettable photographs accompanied by tips, quips and words of inspiration from the people who orchestrated them.
