TS Home Tour

We all deserve to have a sense of home.

Welcome to my home!

Since a tween I was constantly tweaking, organizing and styling my spaces for comfort and inspiration. Style and creativity gave me a sense of stability and a retreat.

Growing up in a chaotic environment I found every way to control my environment by tweaking what I had. I once made a side table for my books out of a cardboard box and wrapping paper. From scents, music, colors and art I knew that by tweaking my environmental experiences I could make the most of a bad home life.

Style for Less: I get a thrill out of making something beautiful from what many think is nothing. I find most of my pieces at thrift stores like the Brown Elephant and online discount sites like Wayfair and Amazon. My savvy skills have allowed me to work with a variety of client budgets and help more people who are in major need of home inspiration. I believe that anyone can have their dream space now by adding a few personalized pieces with what they currently have.

"Small style tweaks really make a huge difference in our spaces."

As a business owner my home and my work space continue to be super important to my productivity and creativity. As I grow, my style continues to grow with me. I can't wait to see what my next home tour style will be!

My Style: I love mixing styles in a smart balanced way. Every time I style a room I let my intuition lead. A lot of my personal style inspirations come from my passion for light and airy spaces that feel almost heavenly. The world is such a chaotic tough place so I wanted my home to feel peaceful and light. My home has a mix of modern edgy, feminine and a touch of California style. You'll also see a lot of texture in my apartment because it is my favorite way to style any space. It's amazing how an added dimension like a weaved pattern, leather fringe or a three-dimensional painting can really add warmth. The desire to "touch" items with texture in a space can create a more intimate experience. I always have fresh flowers around as a reminder of growing up in beautiful New England.

Favorite Items: It's so hard to pick my favorite because I put careful thought and passion into every piece. If I had to pick one I would definitely say my new fringe belt. It's amazingly beautiful laid over a chair or as wall art. The other items I absolutely love in my apartment would be my vintage pharmacy lamps I found at a thrift store and my personally painted art pieces. The lamps and art really make statements in my main living space.

Next Home Project: I can never wait to start my next project! I've been planning out my coffee/cocktail bar for months. I work from home sometimes with my team and entertain friends often. I want my guests to have a space they know to help themselves to drinks and snacks.
