holistic interior design

Hey lovely,

A little over 14 years ago, I began my design journey by styling home décor at (bet you won’t guess it) my small town hardware store. I then studied Interior Design, earned my degree and immediately dove into kitchen and bath design as an employee for a design-build firm. The highlight for me at 22 was being recognized nationally as one of the top in the kitchen + bath design industry. I love designing kitchens, and it's no surprise my human design 'environment' is the kitchen!

Fast forward a bit and I’m 25, having a legit quarter-life crisis (LOL I swear they are real). I celebrated my golden birthday with my closest friends and some farm-to-table Italian cuisine. A month later I broke up with my boyfriend of 4 years and six months after that I left my full time job to pursue my own business. Talk about personal growth! This gave me the opportunity to slow down and truly find my voice. I knew an online interior design studio would not only allow me freedom, but the ability to provide my services to clients all over the country.

Then, I discovered my love for travel and visited so many amazing places!

In 2019 I purchased a home and started my first vacation rental on Airbnb. As a Airbnb host, it’s truly rewarding to provide an incredible experience to guests through interior design. I have never felt so fulfilled! 

Thank you for being here!

With love,

beyond the surface

While creating a beautiful home is important, to me it’s all about inner beauty. It’s about what we can’t see that creates flow and functionality.

Our homes are vision boards. We have the power to manifest anything we want through intentional design

All of the calming, sensory details: accent mood lighting , burning my Dear Travel candles, the comfiest of bedding (I value my sleep so much), chill nostalgic music, yummy nourishing foods and dark chocolate for my sweet tooth!

Mindful practices that nourish your body and mind. For me, it's cuddling with my cat before I get out of bed, then taking the time to make a yummy breakfast with mushroom coffee in my French press and following it with a morning walk!

On new adventures and traveling whether big or small. I love trying new restaurants and coffee shops that make me feel inspired. I enjoy staying at boutique hotels and Airbnbs that create a unique experience!

Connecting and collaborating with women whether it's to design their personal home or vacation home. I equally love collaborating with and supporting other small creative online businesses!

Ooo, this is tough! My self-love journey has flourished so much in my twenties. I'd say I'm proud of my curious and compassionate soul. It allows me to continually grow and experience life in BIG ways!
