Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: We are a busy family (seven with our fur babies) of musicians and creative humans. We moved into our home just as the pandemic was shutting things down, so we had a lot of time to settle and create in our new space.

I will forever be grateful for the extra time I got to spend with my kids during that time! Two are about to graduate high school, and our time spent quarantined together is time I will always remember and be glad for! Our 1956 Ranch style mid-century home is now filled with tons of art, color, plants and wallpapers. And, in true creative madness or form it’s ever-changing!

I am a Reiki Master that uses Feng Shui color tactics to create flow and design for the senses. I was diagnosed with Ménière’s disease about 18 months ago, and have been on a journey to find balance, surrounding myself with healing color and texture. Earthy greens and warm turmeric yellows seem to be resonating with me on a deep level, and they can be found in many places of our home. I have been designing for my senses, using Feng Shui color tactics with grounding and earthy colors!

What is your favorite room and why? It’s hard to say… I love the earthy palm print wallpaper in my office space, but I also love the warmth and color in our living spaces. Our spaces are all connected with visual flow, and maybe I love that most?

What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing I purchased for my home was a vintage Don Friedman tapestry for $75 at an estate sale. I called it my “Flock of Seagulls” tapestry. When I brought it home, my touring drummer instructor husband with a love of 1980s music, was greatly disappointed that I did not in fact bring a vintage “Flock of Seagulls” memorabilia piece home.

Any advice for creating a home you love? I feel that we should surround ourselves with meaningful objects. If those objects no longer speak to you, it’s time to help them find a new home. My home is ever evolving.
