On most sites this page is written in third person, about the person, not by the person. That approach does not feel genuine to me so if you don't mind, I will speak directly to you. That's how the best conversations start.
I have always had my hand in real estate, home and homemaking in one way or another. Home is the vibrant thread that runs through my entire life, and where my passions live. Be it a cottage or a condo, tiny or huge, I love pulling the style story together and home making.
I had a successful real estate practice for many years and have been staging since the late 80's, before staging even had a name! Real Estate opened the door to full time staging, then formal training in decorating, design psychology, evidence based home design and color.
I am a master stager and a home stylist. I love that every project is a little different from the last, spaces are as unique as the people they shelter. My approach is holistic, I endeavor to make your home a happier, healthier and more beautiful place.
I have had the incredible fortune to travel the world extensively, 30 countries and counting. My husband Jack and I lived in Dublin, Ireland for awhile, we experienced life abroad in an every day kind of way. Our location was the ticket to traveling every chance we got. I fell in love with Europe first, then with travel in general.
I've been to and absorbed some incredible cultures, those places and their layers have become a part of me and play out in my design aesthetic and philosophy.
As much as I love traveling, I love coming home more. Travel keeps me open and full of awe, feeds my creativity and my senses. Home keeps me balanced and connected, grounded in a strong sense of belonging. It's my recipe for living the wholehearted life.
The new website name is no coincidence, It's All About Living. I am a cancer thriver, in remission from lymphoma for two years now. It's All About Living is personal to me. As an outcropping of my health crisis I completed training in EBD (Evidence Based Design- the intersection of wellness and holistic home design based on targeted research and science) and Design Psychology. I know first hand how important home is in the healing process.
It's important to me that my clients are "over the moon" satisfied so I continue to invest in world class training, research and study to sharpen my eye, my technique, and to keep up with what is on trend. My design forte is Decorating, Room ReDesign, Home Staging, crafting Color/Paint Stories and creating Healing Spaces.
