Growing up in New Zealand, I never gave too much thought about design, and why my mom decorated our home the way she did, but in hindsight, she actually taught me so much!
that beauty doesn't have to be complicated.
that no matter what , a home should always be comfortable.
that how we live really matters.
what we choose to surround ourselves with makes us (and everyone around us) happier.
Years later, I accidentally moved to New Jersey, fell in love with budget decorating, and decided to attend the School of Interior Redesign in Connecticut. Since 2007, I've been helping people to see the potential in what they already have, redesigning homes, organizing, consulting and home staging.
In between working with her design clients, I've also taught classes at the local community school, and love to write about everything to do with life, style and home.
