Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: I work from home with my 3-year-old assistant. I am an antique dealer/interior designer who specializes in Airbnb design. My husband is an organic farmer and my daughter Lokee is pure magic! Rocco is our 11-year-old dog and he is a the most loyal, loving pup we could ever wish for.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Colorful, vibrant, bold, energetic, fun!
What is your favorite room and why? My daughter’s room. I feel like all of the rules can be broken in kids’ rooms. It’s where I let my imagination run wild.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? I just thrifted a brass tic tac toe board—score!
Any advice for creating a home you love? Always opt for vintage over new. Invest in high-quality pieces over loads and loads of thoughtless purchasing, even if it means you are living in an empty room for a while.
I’m borrowing from the great Marie Kondo here: Buy what sparks joy for you in your home. Take your time, and it will all fall into place.
