Exquisite Vintage

It was like putting together a puzzle on the ceiling. Each piece of barnwood is a different length, width, and color. To really make a statement, I wanted to ensure the variations in size and color were highlighted by mixing it up.


Elegant French Country

The challenge in this project was finding a lighting source that did not need to be plugged in. I came across these gorgeous candelabras and I knew I had my answer!


Polished Class

People often ask me how to accessorize their shelves. This client had a gorgeous fireplace and one of her requests was how to decorate the shelves lining the fireplace.


Timeless Elegance

The main focus in this design, was lighting. If you really want to make a change, my first suggestions are wall colors and lighting. These two items can completely change a room!  


“Driving Miss Daisy” Gem

Often, we come into a home with a few pieces to work with and incorporate into the design. I knew right away how to complete the design story and where to direct the purchase process. I stumbled upon this farmhouse table at an Antique store and fell in love with the look and the story!

Let’s talk. Treat yourself. You deserve it.
