How did you become interested in design?
I’ve loved design since I was a child…rearranging my furniture, decorating my bedroom, experimenting with color (especially turquoise!). I’m sure the love of design springs from my father, who is an architect. I’ve learned to appreciate good design from him.
When you aren’t blogging, what do you do?
Spend time with my husband! We were married in April and are loving it so far! We recently sold our house and have been house-hunting like crazy. My favorite downtime activities, though, are watching movies, listening to music or going to concerts, traveling and shopping.
What’s one of your favorite decorating ideas or tips?
I absolutely adore color, but neutrals can be your best friend. It’s so easy to change out accessories when your background is neutral. A white slipcovered sofa is my favorite thing ever. It’s so easy to change the look of it, but it’s also easy to clean (which is great when you have 4 animals!).
