Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: Our home has been my blank canvas to express my creative abilities and incorporate my many DIY projects.

Creating personal spaces for all of my children, and a home we can grow in for a long time, was my number one goal. Each space has grown to have personality and memories all mixed in one.

Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Boho Farmhouse Paradise

What is your favorite room and why? My favorite room in the home is our master bedroom. I spent a lot of time thoughtfully decorating it to be the tranquil space I needed at the end of the day. It’s a wicker jungle of sorts, and sparks so much joy for me.

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last things I purchased for my home were new rugs for my children’s rooms, and a hallway runner in a beautiful vintage design.

Any advice for creating a home you love? My biggest piece of advice is that it takes time! You can’t rush the process; collect pieces new and old that tell a story of your home. Follow your heart with your style, less is more!
