If done right, I believe all styles of design are beautiful. Design isn’t just about pretty things – it’s about really listening to your clients and interpreting their words into a look that is all their own. I love layered, organic design – starting the room with classic moulding, rustic beams, a beautiful fireplace mantel – and building the rest of the room from there. It is like a puzzle, fitting the pieces together in a way that is unique and beautiful to each space. No matter the style or size of the project, it should reflect the client, and be comfortable and cozy.

Design has inspired me from an early age. Whether it was drawing up the space plan I’d like to see for my bedroom or constantly re-arranging my furniture, design felt like a wonderful escape for me. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in interior design, and it was here that I first discovered a passion for using natural elements in my designs, balanced by more contemporary pieces. Mixing genres keeps design interesting, and tells a story.

When I’m not searching for the perfect lamp shade or scouring Pinterest for ideas, you can find me with my family in Arcadia, working in the garden or sitting on the front porch with my husband, watching our boys play and visiting with the neighbors. Other passions include photography, running and traveling. I love the simple things in life, and continue to feel very thankful that I can spend my days living my dream.
