WELCOME! If you are looking for a traditional decorator that is going to bring you swatches of material and drawings for custom furniture, I’m not your gal! I have recently discovered a few key items that I love to use that need to be made custom but for the most part, I shop “off the rack” for my clients, in lower priced stores. I find the items, I show you, you love it, we buy it and it shows up in your house within a day. Yay!!!! Instant happiness. No waiting, no ordering, no being told it is back ordered, just instant gratification.
I’m thrifty, love discounts and don’t believe you need to spend excessively to have a beautiful, comfortable home. Of course you need to spend some money but what I love to do is change things often, without breaking my bank account.
If you have children as I do, you know that buying a hand wash/dry clean only pillow for $250 is going to make you scream with horror when your 2-year-old spills juice all over your pillow. I know you are also going to freak out when the teenagers get pizza sauce all over your pillow even though they are forbidden from eating in the family room. I have lived this over and over again and have chosen a different approach. Buy a down filled pillow with a zipper that has great style from TJMaxx. When someone spills on it, try and wash it. I have learned that 9 times out of 10 the stain comes out and the pillow will continue to look great for another 10/12 months. And now next year you can buy some new pillows in the most current colors and trends.
Now this is my approach and it is what I love doing, because I like to change things up. It’s like when you take down the Christmas decorations, everything feels bare and empty but yet it feels great having all the simplicity and extra space. I always love to add a touch of color after the holidays because Spring is right around the corner.
I love change, color, simplicity, plants, flowers and lots of textures. If you invest in decor for you home hoping it lasts a lifetime, I’m not the designer you want.
If you have children, dogs, cats, birds, and a significant other that are messy, clumsy and destructive I know how to help you make your home beautiful and comfortable. This is what I specialize in.
This is my favorite chair in our home. It was a brown wooden chair when I found it next to the trash cans on large item pick up day. I spray painted it turquoise, my favorite color, changed the fabric on the seat and now it is the center of our family room. It cost me $6.00 and an hour of my time. Doesn’t get much better than that!
