1. What inspired you to become a designer? What has your journey been like?

I started writing the blog because I was interested in design and mixing patterns with colors and textures. I love to pair vintage finds with newer pieces to create a unique, one-of-a-kind look. The blogging and design journey has been one full of exciting opportunities I never would have imagined when I began.

2. How would you describe your design aesthetic?

I typically trend toward industrial farmhouse style. I love repurposing items in the home.

3. What was your favorite projects? Why?

One of my favorite projects in my home has been my recipe wall.

4. What’s your favorite trend right now?

I love the idea of adding architecture to a home. Projects like a shiplap wall or over-sized floor moldings or even ceiling medallions are great DIY projects. It’s an easy way to update a builder home into something special and one of a kind.
