Contemporary cottage

The before of this particular project was sad and tired but there was definitely some potential. The worst house on a nice street.

I imagined the house as a cute white cottage with character and charm.. or at least as much character and charm as the budget would allow.

The first step was adding balance to […]

Chateau de Gudanes

These beautiful images are from a new publication, Evoke magazine that a client introduced me to. So dreamy!
Built in the 1700’s the chateau is located in a small village in the south of France nestled amongst the midi-pyrenees.

What a dream it would be to get married here…

I am also thinking for in here, […]

 We’ve been busy with finishing details around the house, trim, curtains, tiling, to try and get the house liveable so we can finally move in! Oh and we also got a fresh tree for Chrismas!!  The tree fills a big void in the living helping the space feel more […]

Work Inspiration

As a new designer that decided to go out on her own… I deal with a lot of doubt. Doubt that I am doing what I should, that I am making the right choices in life and design. Without a design team backing you up, or a boss telling you the direction to go, […]
