Are you wondering what started this great passion Interior Design passion of mine? H
I loved home decor, even in high school. I dreamed of setting up my own home (maybe that attributed to my getting married so early). I am an artist at heart and come from a long line of homemade artists on both sides of the family. I even just found out my
I found myself dreaming of being an interior designer. Especially after I met with an Interior Designer to help me with my colors while we were building our first home. I thought it was like magic the way she could see how my colors I chose didn’t coordinate. She helped me pull everything together with such ease and found me the perfect color for my walls!
