I have spent a lifetime reimagining spaces, styling interiors and finding creative solutions for home design. Along the way, I have added an arsenal of high tech skills and old-fashioned resourcing expertise that I am thrilled to share with my clients.
Self-taught and design-obsessed from the age of six, I have spent countless hours scouring flea markets, estate sales, antique malls, thrift stores, and online auctions for unique, beautiful, and useful things. I reupholstered my first armchairs with contrast welting at twenty. I feel strongly that homes, like the families that live in them, have souls. A home shouldn’t look or feel like a retail store; it should be as unique as the people who live there.
Simply put, I am a house and furnishings Nerd. I love to visit homes and envision how, with just a little reimagining, they can come to life, work for a family, and show off their best features. I believe strongly in sourcing vintage and heirloom pieces when possible. I love wallpaper and color and taking some risks because that is fun. And I believe that you can do all of this and still have a house with kids and pets.
Since childhood, I have lived all over the U.S., in old houses and new builds. Mid-century split levels, two stories and historic, turn of the century walk-ups, Southern California condos and cottages, and ranches. In small towns and huge metro areas. Envisioning the possibilities for a new space never gets old for me. From the front yard to my closet. I simply cannot wait for the next project.
I would love to help you with yours.
Have a room you’d like to see with wallpaper? A different color? Trimmed out, or sporting a new built-in? Let me know. I’d love to show you exactly how great it can be.
