    Owner & Design Consultant

    Thanks for stopping by! A bit about me - I love taking care of the details, in everything I do. I love how each choice and step in the process comes together to create something beautiful. It began as a kid with meticulously planning birthday parties and creating next level school art projects. It carried into cooking with my mom, designing party table settings and arranging dishes that looked almost too pretty to eat!

    My grandfather was an interior designer. The design gene carried down to my mom who filled our home with warmth and beauty. My brother and I joke about how a rare day passed by without a new paint or fabric swatch appearing somewhere at home. Designing spaces with my mom was special. I soaked up the process; learned when to be bold with patterns, textures and color and when to lean into the simpler classics; and my love for all things design blossomed.

    Along my career journey from fine arts, psychology, law to being a Registered Dietitian, my love of helping people improve their lives has consistently grown. Now I get to do that through design. Where you live and work, how you use your space and the feelings it evokes are unique to each person. I love the process of helping people craft their vision and bring it to life.
