My Story

I embarked on this journey when I was 11 years old.  My parents pulled me, my younger sister and brother up to a house and told us it was going to be ours.  I was not impressed.  The lawn was dying, the exterior color was drab, and the inside had carpeting in the kitchen.  I remember standing there looking at the walkway to the house and having a vision of how it would look with a bed of flowers on either side.  During high school I spent weekends arranging, then rearranging the furniture in my room until I got it right, then started over again once I got bored with it.  I didn’t realize at the time that people actually did this for a living – for me, it was something fun I did when I felt like it.  Fast forward through college, med school, residency and the beginnings of a career as a pediatrician and you find me in my very own fixer upper.  After renting for well over a decade, I finally had a place that I could turn into exactly what I wanted.

I spent the next 3 years fixing it up and through the process learned a lot about home design and renovation.  It was my creative outlet, where I lost myself after a hard week at work.  It was also how I experienced first-hand the impact of good design on a person’s feeling of well-being upon walking in the door.  Then something interesting happened.  People started asking me for help with their projects.  And I loved helping them.  After spending the past few years helping family, friends, co-workers, and even house flippers design and decorate their spaces, I decided to go public and just … see what happens.

In my experience, many people don’t need a full service interior designer.  All they need is a little creative help, a nudge, and a plan that is affordable which they can implement themselves.  That is what I offer.  If you’re about to embark on your own project then I would love to be a part of your story.  Not only is decorating and design my creative passion, but it’s my small way of bringing a little joy into others’ spaces.
