Helping clients make their environment as comforting
as possible is why I do what I do. Whether it's through
interior design or freshening up pieces of furniture,
I love seeing the transformation of a home.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Architectural Engineering Technology in 2003, then worked for an architecture firm in Hartford, CT. During my time there I focused primarily on commercial interiors. I had opportunities to work with several large insurance companies. I specialized in space planning (furniture and office plan arrangement), but also had opportunities to select finishes, manage projects, and work directly with clients and contractors. I found that I had a passion for interior spaces, and how to make them work, and appeal to the end user.
When my daughter was born (6 weeks prematurely), I decided to leave the office to stay home full time. My passion for interior design has not faded over the years, and in the spring of 2017 I passed a final exam to become an NCIDQ Certified Interior Designer. This means that I understand the importance of building codes and life safety in design.
Over the years I began to refinish furniture to give it new life. I have painted numerous pieces for my own home in a variety of colors and styles. I now specialize in custom furniture painting for clients.
Another passion of mine is to help people (as well as myself) live simpler lives. Reducing clutter from a home can greatly increase contentment within a home, and help to reduce negative feelings. Removing things from a home can be an overwhelming and emotional process, but I enjoy helping people on this journey.
