first things first, i love your house already.


I can’t help it. I love houses.  That’s how God made me. I love working on yours just as much

as I like working on mine.


i used to be on television. a few pounds and children ago. yes, it was awesome.

Trite as it sounds, I prefer my life post-TV - kids, suburbs, no one caring what my hair looks like.


i wrote a book. when i was pregnant with my fourth. I am just as surprised as you are. I have

a lot to say about this topic of making home.


i am self-taught. design school and I didn’t hit it off. i left after a year. I have learned on the job 

through many complex renovations in various homes of my own and those of others. I also designed hundreds

of houses during my five-season stint on HGTV's “Hidden Potential.”


i say the word God. God has guided me, a bit of a broken misfit,

on a really beautiful and abundant journey. So it would just be weird for me to hide my faith. He is the reason there is something to read on this page. Also, I believe that our homes are sacred places. I believe it’s the best place for us to express our whole selves - including our spiritual selves.


i am a mother to four kids. I get how hard it is to have a nice house with kids. believe me. it is possible, and it doesn’t involve plastic sofa covers or barricades. it is  a little bit about embracing childhoodfrom a design perspective.


i like to talk. Please ask me questions and reach out to me with your house problems, color quandaries, drapery musings and anything else house-related!
