Her beginning: She switched from a career in public relations to interior design after taking just one interior design course!
Fun fact: Her work has been featured on such media outlets as The Washington Post, DesignSponge, and CocoCozy.
In her words: "My advice for those who want to break out on their own is to do your research first. Talk to local entrepreneurs and those in the field to which you want to join and pepper them with questions. Their answers can help potentially lead you in the right direction. You are going to have to believe in yourself, your passion, and then go for it. You only live once, make it happen!"

Hope you are having a great weekend! It's supposed to snow here, so who knows what tomorrow will bring! I've been purging stuff in my house and decided to take a break to look around online and came up with these fun things for my February Wish list. Yes, I realize we have another week, but what the heck--it gives me time to wish longer! haha
I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I was busy this morning cleaning up my office and desk. I ran to the grocery store to pick up these pretty pink baby roses. I was also at HomeGoods yesterday and scored the pink notebook and the gorgeous black and gold bowl featured here! I love candles so I always have one lit in my office. Certain scents bring back memories of events or trips.

FOOD: This looks like a great recipe for entertaining ! You can't go wrong with a beautiful presentation!
I was recently introduced by a good friend to a very high-end consignment shop here in DC.
I was thrilled to find some beautiful bags, clothes, shoes and even home goods. I love the "hunt" for both vintage and new items! I had the good fortune of finding a vintage Christian Dior scarf and a gray Italian leather bag that looks a lot like Valentino's Rock Stud.. Happy Shopper I am!
Which leads me to today's post... not everything has to be new to be "good." I love finding vintage pieces for a client, even if it's just a small tabletop accessory. This is easier to do for my clients who lean more modern, but it's fun just to look too.
Check out these beautiful designs using vintage pieces!
