My background is editing, which sharpened my eye for detail and the belief that working the process is imperative in shaping the final result. While my kids were little, I wrote a DIY blog called House Over Head (now offline), which documented the changes I made to our 70s-era split-level home.
There, I wrote about white washing my fireplace, hanging interior doors, sewing slipcovers, and lots of painting projects. It was a life-giving creative outlet while my kids were young!
From there I became a contributor to Houzz, as both a writer and photographer. I highlighted many beautiful spaces and the interesting people behind them for a world-wide audience. Then as a design consultant for a local home design store, I went into people’s homes to address their design dilemmas, advise customers making furniture selections, select hard surfaces for new builds, and endlessly style showroom vignettes .
In 2019 I started this business under my own name. In the fall of 2020 I was accepted to University of Texas in San Antonio to start earning my Masters in Architecture because I want to be able to really redesign spaces from the top down, including larger renovations, additions, and new builds.
I believe in uncovered potential, hidden beauty, second chances, and multi-purpose items and spaces. I understand the need to balance multiple priorities at once: beauty and budget, practicality and inspiration, vision and time. I’m passionate about the idea of home, and I’d love to be passionate about your home.
I’m always renovating something. I learned long ago that I prefer a paint brush and sewing machine to adult coloring books and crochet needles, and I never feel as comfortable in my own skin as when it’s paint splattered. I’m married, a mother to three kids, and an owner of two pets. I have been making my home in San Antonio, Texas, since 2014.
