discovering your style

Whether you’re a long-time follower of a brand new one, thanks for joining me for this five part video series – “The Home Design Starting Line”.

I know there are a lot of people who can just do it.  They can look at a room and fill it with furniture, fabrics, and colors; coordinating and complimenting everything perfectly.    Others need a guide; a friend there to encourage and give them confidence in their gut-design-instincts.  And then, there are the people who feel like they are a hopeless case.  If you fit into the first camp, these videos will motivate you to tackle that room that’s been bugging your or convince you that you can add sewing to your decorating toolbox.     If you’re in group number two, I hope I can be that friend and guide.  Through these videos, we’ll talk through finding your style and putting it in a plan that can turn into a room you love.  If you feel like you fit in the third group, I’m here to tell you there are no hopeless cases.  It might not feel natural to you and it might take some trial and error, but there is a little creative soul within you just waiting to be discovered.

I don’t think there is a wrong place to start when it comes to designing and decorating a room or your home, but we’re going to start at a place of discovery.  In this first video, I’m going to share my five steps to discovering your style, so it can be a map as you begin the decorating process….
