Interior design in my mind is an eclectic journey. A process of finding things that are useful, mindful, and feel good. A collection that grows with you. I love a lot of different styles—antiques, new things, midcentury modern stuff, and everything in between. I am drawn to things that have a story or a past life—things with depth, things that have a soul. This collection is about life, color, and combinations that are cozy and rich with texture. The main pieces feel like I could live with them for a long time. I like to buy some staple items that are going to last, then switch out smaller items like pillows and accessories when I’m ready for a change. I found a lot of what you see here on Etsy, where everything is either handmade or vintage. Like most designers, I love the hunt, and finding pieces that get woven into your home’s tapestry is a fulfilling process. The inspiration for this living space comes from collecting found items and coming up with an eclectic mix. A space for watching TV, hanging out, lounging, reading a book, and a place infused with life and heart. For me, it’s not about matching everything together but creating an organic mixture of new and old, found and repurposed, things that speak to you personally. I think when you buy mindfully and slowly over time it makes for a more authentic space that ultimately feels peaceful. Everything can be new again if we can see past the imperfections—a great metaphor for life, really.
