We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
The transformation of a space - taking it from something dated or cookie-cutter and redesigning it to be unique as the one I’m designing for! Also, I thoroughly enjoy using various trends for different personalities.
What drives you to design?
Seeing the space for what it is and the potential for what it could be, I have a need to make it a reality. I want to create the spaces we live our lives in. I want us to spend our days in spaces that are our happy places, somewhere we can go with our eyes open.
Describe your favorite project:
The challenging projects are always more fulfilling; all that hard work, the obstacles faced, all to see the glorious completed work, it brings me so much joy. Example; My first cabin home, we couldn’t move any walls, and adding/altering anything electrical was a brain scratch-er, but we found a way to make the changes and it turned out beautiful!
