"Growing up in Seattle with my Texas born and bred mother, the role of ‘home’ has always been a huge part of my life - specifically the creative aspects of decorating, cooking, sewing, and crafting. 

My love for color manifested through a career as a florist for 12 years, and as an educator I learned how to listen deeply to others. I’ve had my share of hardships — grief through losing my parents and a few failed relationships—that ultimately led me to channel my passion for design and strong connection to home into a career in home design, staging, and real estate. I wanted to create a space for my own children that brought comfort, inspiration, and peace as well.

Because of these unique and diverse experiences, I’m able to listen to my clients deeply. I hear not only the words they’re sharing and what their needs are verbally, but also the emotional queues that come with redesigning and rearranging such personal spaces.

As I begin to stage a space I think it’s important to add character to create something unique, and designing is truly an art for me that draws me in. 

For home owners who are thinking of selling, or those who’re looking to declutter and reorganize, the re-design process is an important one that sets your space apart, gives it life, and hopefully inspires someone to want to spend time in that space as well."
