Arthur’s enthusiasm and humour directly impact most everything he does, and his approach to design is no different. With a background in marketing and special events, he has an instinctual ability for setting a stage, with eyes equally trained on both the big picture and smallest detail. While decorating is his true passion, he possesses a fluent design vocabulary that lends itself to redesigning and re-imagining beautiful spaces in various styles. Arthur is a contributing writer for Covet Magazine, where he regularly uses his voice to highlight beautiful decorating and design. His biggest design lesson? “Good design is often about your perspective. And, if you love black sofas, don’t get a white dog.”
