    I think we all know how you feel. One of the hardest parts is actually starting your business, unfortunately it doesn’t get easier from there, but it is SO worth it. Every time I get down and want to give up something will happen, a happy client will call, I will find the perfect piece for someone and then I will feel so much better. So when you are feeling frustrated, just hang on, it will pass I promise! You will be great!!!!!

    Thank you so much for the link…so sweet, and I’m so happy people are enjoying the series:) I think we all could use a little inspiration right now, and Amy Tan’s question is a powerful one. I say go for it with the interior design biz…if you love what you do, you’re that much more ahead of the game.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
