I’m  a Texas Registered Interior Designer, and old house enthusiast. I live just outside of Dallas Texas. 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 diamonds in the rough.



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 Cape Cod cottage, or shopping at vintage shops and antique markets, or visiting historic places.
