Growing up our family was healthy, happy and thankful. My younger years were uneventful, my high school years, like every one else, were full of sports, books and pizza!
My years in college are where the magic happened. I realized personal responsibility, the ability to work hard and my passion for design. The way colors compliment each other and texture adds flavor! The way space planning allows for functionality and movement within a room. The way the beauty of interior design can affect a person, a family and a business.
After working in a wide range of design jobs acquiring skills like project planning and implementation, ordering and specifying, account management, inventory control, department organization, salesmanship, customer care, I returned home to care for a family of my own.
Being a stay at home mom, I began to re-design and re-purpose ....alot....over and over again! I found a practical avenue to interior design that is both beautiful and affordable.
I came back to my roots and began to use my talents in my own space, my own family, and now my own business. I find great joy in helping others create a home....
not a house that you work on....but a home that works for you.
