At the end of every year I love to take a look back to see what topics you loved the most and what struck a chord with you!
Certainly all things design and paint colors are BIG interests for you and me!
Last year you kept me very busy with online design and paint color consults, which I absolutely LOVE working on! Helping people love and enjoy their homes is the reason behind my blog and is my passion, both personally and professionally!
I’m currently having a lot of fun working on a studio apartment living room design, an exterior paint color consult, a living room paint color consult, a bedroom design, kitchen hardware sourcing and two living room design projects. If you’d like help with your home, see my online design consult service info here.
I believe with all my heart and soul that everyone can and should enjoy the home they live in! Having a home that functions and feels the way that feeds our souls, improves the way we tackle our day, brings us joy and uplifts us!
I’m so honored that you trust me with your homes and your decor visions. The testimonials that you’ve shared with me, on how much you’ve loved the advice that I’ve recommended completely fills my heart.
It makes me feel proud and happy that I’m helping you improve your spaces, that bring you more joy! Because the world certainly needs more joy in it, I think!
The past year was also busy with our bathroom remodel (we’re currently renovating our powder room bathroom! If you follow me on Instagram I share updates on our progress, the gorgeous paint color and vanity we chose!), painting projects and lots of seasonal decorating!
