Our Home is our life, it’s where we laugh, love, and recharge our minds. Your home should reflect you, and be a place of comfort for your family, but it should still be full of things you love and be a beautiful space that you are excited to show off.
I was raised in a family of people who embodied this concept. Living in an antique home in Redding, CT filled with art and design. My creativity came from my mother, an accomplished Oil Painter, and also a realtor. My father was a remodeling contractor, and custom cabinet builder. I spent much of my youth in homes all over fairfield county that my parents were working at. I now live in Newtown, with my husband, who runs a landscaping company, my 2 young children, 3 dogs and a bunch of chickens. The house is full of life, chaos and unique decor, much of which has been found over the years on travels, and nature hikes, as well as at tag sales or regular old retail. I am committed to making my house a beautiful, unique, functional, and healthy environment….and to do it on a budget.
I hold a Bachelors degree in Visual Arts, and throughout my early career I took courses at both the Fashion Institute of Technology and Rhode Island School of Design in Interior Decorating and Fashion and Home Staging. I spent 6 years working in Visual Merchandising for High end Clothing Retailers, followed by another 5 years in Interior Decorating as both a Designer and as a Merchandiser/buyer. Once I had my son in 2013, I joined my family’s Real Estate business full time. I continued my design work by staging for real estate. I staged homes that we were selling, as well as guiding clients in placement of furniture in their new homes. Up until now, I have only offered this service to my real estate clients- but I am ready to expand.
I am here to document and share my ideas and inspirations, successes and mishaps, with you, and to help you discover the beauty in your own home. I am available for Redesign, Staging, Space Planning and other decorating services.
