I was the child who rearranged her mother’s furniture, and became the young woman who used “found” pieces, re-imagined objects, and upcycled furniture to create a home no matter where I lived.
Even the smallest, dingiest corners spoke to me. They called out to be turned into havens. Places to think, be productive, to do creative work. For a new business and self-esteem to grow.
During upheavals and unexpected turns in my life, I’ve used interior space as a refuge, a place to recharge, and a way to take back control. To stay focused. To keep going.
Space was a tool I used to feel the way I wanted to feel..
For me, that meant a tool-belt on my hips. Hammer and tape measure and level in the holsters, ready to go...undaunted by my big plans and small budget.
Over the years, linoleum floors were ripped up, cabinets rebuilt, and ugly was replaced with charming. Doorways were sledgehammered into wide arch-ways. Patio bricks were hauled and laid, one by one, so the neighborhood could congregate for marshmallow roasts and my kids could feel community. A lopsided, three-season porch, with grimy, gray carpet was turned into light-filled, fresh, expansive space for my business.
This is about owning what we truly, deeply want instead of merely owning furniture.
True style always comes from and circles back to whatever feels good and right.
When your home aligns with the way you want to feel, it carries you through the unexpected. It cradles you during heartache and pushes you to be who you were meant to be.
This is intentional style, used as a tool to create a life.
You don’t need someone to tell you what lifts you up. You know what inspires you. You know what makes you smile.
This is why I help people create experiences, not just homes.
This is your official permission to surround yourself with whatever makes your heart so full that you can’t wait to wake up and get going.
Your home is a tool that can inspire your next project, your new beginning, or simply the next chapter of your same, familiar, happy story.
I've had the privilege of working with iconic corporate brands. At Nike, we created sales environments which were total experiences - and changed the direction of retail design.
The sky was the limit when it came to enhancing how our customers felt in our spaces - and we created some really amazing environments to express the brand..
I bring the marketing lessons I learned working for the big brands down to a personal level, by helping clients create living and working spaces which are a true reflection of their own unique, personal brand.
Every choice you make is a reflection of who you are and the experiences you want for yourself and the important people in your life.
Working at Ralph Lauren taught me how spaces are more than just rooms - they can give people an entire experience.
When we built Polo Shops, every detail was chosen to enable customers to feel the way they wanted to feel when wearing Ralph Lauren - luxury, ease, and sophistication.
These days, I help clients create spaces that allow them and the important people in their lives to feel the way they want to feel in their homes.
It's all about knowing what you want from your space - starting with the feeling and building from there..
I see the spaces where you live and work as an extension of your personality.
Every project I work on is an opportunity to help someone feel more aligned with what they want to experience.
When your space feels right, it's so much easier to do your best work, think clearly, relax, unwind, gear up, and show up for the important people in your life.
Getting to know my clients and helping them create the experiences they want to have, is the best part of what I do!
The "5-Step Style Your Room Happy Formula" is the process I use with my clients to create the spaces of their dreams.

Maybe you're life is changing - kids are flying the coop, you're changing jobs, maybe in a new relationship - or maybe it's finally time to do what you've always wanted to do. Or just rest and relax.
If it seems like your space isn't aligned with how you want to feel right now - working together can give you some direction and help you move forward with confidence.
A few small shifts can help you feel clear and calm, inside and out. This isn't about impressing other people - it's about you creating a life you love.
We'll go through your project together, break down the decisions to be made, and you'll come away with the concrete "next steps" to finish your space.
The perfect solution when you could use some direction to get started and maybe a fresh pair of eyes on your project.
You want that feeling every time you walk in the door.
You'd like a room that looks great and works for you - and let’s you live the way you want to live.
...and you need to free yourself from decision-making paralysis and finish your rooms.
Let me show you how!
Working together, your project can be simple and fun - rather than overwhelming.
We'll use your space to express your unique style and help you feel the way you want to feel!
Everything's easier when your home looks and functions the way you want it to. It's easier to feel in sync and connected with your family and friends -- and it's much, much easier to relax!
This is isn't about trying to impress your neighbors. It's about you...your preferences...what you want for yourself and the important people in your life.
It's about where you are now and what you need to feel good in your space. Your home can lift you up, give you comfort, energize and motivate you.
Your home can show the world the best parts of who you are.
Let's make your home look the way you and your family want to feel.
Your work space is an extension of your personal image. It tells your customers and clients who you are, before you even meet them.
The way your office looks and feels is the brand experience your clients and employees have whenever they walk through the door.
We can bring your space into alignment with your business goals and ensure that your work space makes a positive statement about you everyday.
Let's make your office work as hard as you do.
