You want your home to reflect who you are and who you hope to be. You want to be surrounded by your cherished memories and build on your accomplishments.

You want to design or decorate a new home,  redesign or redecorate an existing home.

You want to save yourself time, money and stress by making great design choices.

You want to avoid costly mistakes.

You want a beautiful home.

I believe a home tells your story, and will be part of your ongoing story.  It’s a connection to your past, where you can imagine your future; a safe place for retreat, and your headquarters for planning your life. Your home grows with you, and becomes an extension of yourself.  Home is where you bring your new born babies, gather with your family and friends for holidays, where you make and cherish memories.

Home is a magical feeling of belonging to the moment, and to each other, and celebrating every day.

I believe good design will improve the way you live in your home. It’s about making your life more wonderful through beauty, form, and function.

My goal is to craft beautiful and functional spaces that inspire people as they live, work, and play. I will create a personal and timeless home for you.

I know the perfect home for you will transform your life.

I’m  a Texas Registered Interior Designer and old house enthusiast. I live just outside of Dallas Texas, in a vintage Cape Cod cottage in the woods. I love to restore & renovate old houses, designing historic reconstruction, and adding character to new homes through architectural detail and decor.  Inspired by beautifully restored and perfectly maintained historic places, I love fixer uppers and designing new homes.


I’m a born-and-raised, 5th generation Texan.  Because my father is a (retired) Air Force pilot, we lived rural England for a time.  Even though I was a young child when we lived over seas, the experience greatly influenced my life.  I know my time there ingrained my love for traditional and vernacular design.

In my 20 years of experience, I have been an art teacher, floral designer, visual merchandiser, graphic designer, movie set decorator, and for the last 15 years, an interior designer. During this time I have developed a deep appreciation for authenticity in design. I love harmony, balance & tradition layered with modern function, color and personality. In addition to interiors, I design new homes from the ground up in historical styles with modern floor plans.

I’ve had a lifelong love of all things creative and artistic. My passion for vintage started in college when I discovered my first vintage clothing shop.  I soon discovered antique architecture and furnishings while working on my first movie, which was set in the 1920’s.

When I’m not designing houses, you can find me fixing up my own vintage cottage, or shopping at vintage shops and antique markets, or visiting historic places.
