Our First Home

Our First Home

In 2010, my husband and I purchased our very first home. After house hunting for quite some time, I found a home with the right vibes. It just felt like a space I could be happy in. It had all of the features we were looking for: brand-new construction with old home character, hardwood floors, granite countertops, white kitchen cabinets, a spa- like master bathroom and beautiful details.  At the time of living in this residence, I never captured my own photos so below you will see the MLS listing photos. In another post, I want to elaborate on why we chose to sell our brand-new construction for a fixer upper.

The master bathroom is the room I miss the most. I really took the space for granted when I lived here.

So I must have been crazy to give this pristine home up for a 1980’s ranch home? I never claimed to complete sanity but once I explain why I did what I did, you might agree.



My journey in interior design and home improvement began with transforming my first fixer-upper home, all while managing a budget and raising two young boys. My work, a reflection of my passion for creating beautiful, uplifting spaces, has been recognized by top publications like Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, HGTV, and more. I invite you to explore my site and witness the transformation of my home and the vibes we've designed.Read more...
