"I've been a lot of places, seen a lot of faces." Who said that originally? Puff Daddy?

Anyway, that's how I'd define my aesthetic foundation. I've lived and loved so many places. London, Nantucket; Indiana, California; city life, sea towns. I've always had wanderlust before the new-aged hippies came along and gave it some contextual meaning for me.

I believe that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it's also universal. It crosses borders and builds bridges. I love to create beauty- whether it's a lovely living room, or a lifelong friendship. Maybe that has something to do with my four children. They are the best part of me on this Earth. I have been married since 2006 to my 8th grade crush-turned-husband, Stephen. In the words of OMI "I think that I've found myself a cheerleader." He's my best friend and biggest support. He has given me the wings to pursue my lofty goals.

I'm inspired by the 'go-getters', 'get-er-doners' and those that have an original perspective. Whether it's home design, fashion, or any other medium, I firmly believe that if you love it, it will work. I try to create spaces for people that allow them to breathe, to connect, and to love.  Love always works.

Here are 5 random facts you might not know about me:

1. I'm addicted to stationary. Yep that's right I buy it no matter what the occasion and regardless of the fact that I have a thousand pieces at home I buy more.

2. I"m a food hoarder. Some people collect clothing, textiles, baseball cards, etc, I collect food! You will never come into my home and see an empty cupboard or a desolate fridge.

3. I'm a complete home body. Ok, if you knew me even a little you would definitely know that by now. But here's the thing, I LOVE to travel. Which makes me an oxymoron right? 

4. I love wi-fi like it's a sickness. I rarely travel anywhere without it. I love/hate that about myself. I've been working really hard lately on staying disconnected during certain parts of the day. 

5. If I were to go back to school I would go into graphic design. It's something I am passionate about but has little to do with natural talent. It it something I have to work at, but at the same time I get so much satisfaction from it.
