Uniquely Enhanced Spaces for Everyday Living

I discovered my passion for interior decorating at a very young age. It began with my frequent hobby of re-arranging bedroom furniture and creating spaces that were visually appealing by using whatever accessories I could find. This passion has continued to grow, just as I have, and I am excited to start helping others create beautiful spaces of their own.

My goal is to provide my clients with a functional and fabulous design that is suitable to their lifestyle. My approach is simple; I am here to guide my clients through their design dilemmas and provide them with a space that is uniquely them. By combining my passion for creativity and my attention to detail with the personal style of each client, we can create beautiful living solutions together!

One of my approaches to interior decorating is somewhat unique; just as every client is unique in his or her own way. The purpose of this technique is to assist those clients who are unsure of the mood or style they wish to represent in their space. In order to ensure that every space will reflect an individualized style, I will draw my inspiration from an ensemble of the client’s choice. We will than reflect on how this outfit makes them feel and how we can incorporate similar elements into their space to create the desired mood and overall style. This method will act as a helpful tool for both the client and myself by allowing us to visualize what is most appealing to them.

I am twenty-two years old and I have lived in Toms River, New Jersey my whole life. I have an Associate degree in Communication from Monmouth University and I am currently enrolled in the Interior Decorating and Design Course at QC Design School. I have assisted family members and friends with many design choices and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Along with interior decorating, I enjoy organizing and de-cluttering spaces and I also plan to enroll in the Home Staging course at QC Design School within the next few months to earn my certificate.
