I was a teacher, a stay-at-home mom, then a homeschooling mom for 15 years. I needed our home to be calm, inviting and functional. Constantly tweaking what worked and more importantly, what didn't.
Not a lot of extra money to play with, I got creative, used what I had, and discovered the thrill of treasure hunting at thrift stores.
As the kids were growing up, I'd help girlfriends rearrange rooms in their homes that weren't working. I cleaned up, bagged things to give away, moved furniture, painted a lot, and made small purchases to add details IF, they couldn't already be found in the home. One friend asked me to help stage her house, another encouraged me to make a Facebook page. That was six year ago.
I have heard people say they don't have company because of the way their house looks or works. I think that is a BIG mistake! This is your life! The people in it mean everything. They will not care what your house looks like. But YOU care. I want you to love your home. We can figure out what should stay, go, or move. Maybe you have a budget to get something new, maybe you need to make-do. The rooms shown here are a collaboration. It's not about me. The design needs to be functional, practical, and beautiful. It's my job to help make your home work for you.
Whatever your needs, I am honored to offer you, A Little Help
