A new (old) house!

I am excited to announce that my husband and I have just bought our very first house!  As you can probably tell from the picture, it is over 100 years old and could use some work.  A big home renovation project is not everyone’s idea of a dream come true, but it is certainly mine.  In the coming weeks I’ll share everything about my design process with you from my unique perspective of being both the Interior Designer and client. (Spoiler alert–I’m already my favorite client ever!)

Since all of my design experience is in high end residential design with budgets in the six or seven figure range, the challenge for me will be to create the same luxe look on a home renovation budget that contains significantly fewer zeros.

I’ve got lots of ideas already and I’d love to hear some of your tips for me!

Stay tuned for more and check out my Pinterest inspiration boards!
