THE INDEX

THE FAT: I'm the daughter of an interior designer who grew up living in homes that were constantly evolving, changing...being redone. Combine that with the sunshine and beaches of Southern California and it’s no surprise I’m living a creative life that’s inspired by easy, beautiful living.

THE SKINNY:  A move South and the springboard of a little home furnishings store—plus a handful of great clients—and I’ve found my place. It's about creating homes and spaces that invite you in, beg you to stay, and make your day when you come through the door.

I firmly believe that a home shouldn’t look “designer done”, but a reflection of the people in it. My style is collected, relaxed, easy, and true. I love a space that welcomes you in and invites you to stay...with a couple surprises along the way. It’s about beautiful spaces to make your instagram feed jealous, but still work for your everyday life. #liveable 

of eyes to let you know if you’re on the right track—that’s what I do. Have a hot gallery of online pics and want to make it work for you? Or maybe you need the cookie cutter house to be not so, well, cookie cutter. I do that, too. From major makeover to just a small nip or tuck, we’ve got you covered. #letschat

WHO WE ARE

We're all about collected, casual, effortless style. It's home. The kind of place that makes you want to kick off your shoes, grab a drink, and hang out for a while.

let's do what we love, and a lot of it

our motto:

Planes, trains or automobiles, I'm always inspired by a change of place. It's the new cultures, food, people, things, color, architecture, pace—I always return from a trip energized, full of ideas, and ready to do it all again. 

01. inspired by

somplace new

…and oversized graphic prints and layers of texture and a comfy, deep sofa and a touch of modern mixed with a bit of "soul". You get the idea: My profession chose me. #lovemyjob

02. really love 

great lighting

You knew I couldn't get through this without a shout out to my fave: East Coast, West Coast, Gulf Coast...it's all good. It's a scientific fact that a little sand between your toes and salt in your hair does wonders for the soul. 

03. my happy place:

the beach

Not too sweet, not too heavy and just the right amount of salt on the rim (don't be crazy with it!). Pair that up with chips and guacamole, and as the kids say: I'm done. 

04. love a good

margarita

Even though my nest is recently empty,  my head and heart are full with thoughts of them...always. Hands down the best thing I ever did was bump into a tall, handsome, hilarious guy in a bar over 20 years ago…simply put: the rest is history. #familyiseverything

05. LIFE IS BETTER WITH
