I've been a pillow arrangement maniac for the past couple of weeks, creating designs for my clients that are ready to get their houses in order for the long awaited spring time! I am a sucker for a neutral palette with pops of green or blue- but I always want to create something that you don't see in stores, that you cant buy at wayfair or target. My goal for every single pillow configuration is to make something unique and tailored with custom selections from sources that you have probably never heard of. Small businesses!Read More
I kill every plant I try to keep in my house, with the exception of one succulent from my baby shower a year a a half ago. I water it for about a week when I get it then completely forget about its existence- but at the same time love the pop of "greenery" that it adds to my space. So, for this reason I've resorted to getting bi-weekly fresh flowers (my husband sends them to me from Pro Flowers ) because after I kill them I know there will be more on the way!Read More

As many of you know, I love to source small businesses for my clients. I think it gives a personal touch to the design and I'd much rather support a mom and pop shop over a box store any day!

I ALWAYS go to my small business vendors before I look to the bigger box stores, espesually for pillows. As a small business myself I love to support individuals vs large companies. Etsy is my go to for pillows and I have a few favorite vendors that I source regularly.

There are plenty of online design services available out there- and I’ve done a little design work for a few of them so I know what they are about. Of course they are great for some, but there are a lot of restrictions set by these companies. They have rules for where the designer is allowed to source, how long the project should take and even who you are matched with. When you select an independent designer or firm that specializes in online interior design you get a personalized experience with all the perks of a local designer.Read More
