My husband and I bought a 1950’s fixer upper before we got married with plans of making it our own. Our family helped us to take down walls and create a space for us that we now call our home. We started out with a couch and folding chairs with dreams of adding furniture and decor pieces that would be part of our “forever” home. My designs came to life from the inspiration of a painting. I used the colors to create a vision for our home; from the chocolate stained wood floors to the hand picked fabric for our dining rooms chairs down to the brushed nickel kitchen cabinet knobs and handles. I planned every detail of our house knowing exactly what we wanted. As friends came over to congratulate us on our new home we received many compliments. Friends asked if I could help with designing and decorating their new home or specific room in their house. From there I decided to take on little projects here and there. I’ve always had a love for art and fashion and decided to take this new hobby of interior design and make it something more. As a full-time mommy to an energetic toddler, wife to an amazing husband, and second grade teacher this hobby of mine has helped to keep my life balanced and creative.
