Hi, I am mom to two boys of my own and two really neat step kids. I have two careers. One as a college of medicine assistant dean the other as a vocalist. I LOVE to decorate in my free time. Over the past 15 years my family and I have worked to restore a 1934 Cape Cod. We're ALMOST finished!! Yeah!!! Whew!
We have completely gone through the house... framing, abated lead paint, electrical, brick work, plumbing, HVAC, refinished flooring, and of course all of the pretty stuff had to be added..paint, wallpaper, light fixtures
...a bit of marital advice: NEVER paint stripes in a stairway with your spouse...it's worse than wallpapering...trust me on this But I'll get to that story later.
Not all of the rooms in my home are posted yet..that fact ties back to my having two careers.
Elegant cozy spaces are my niche. I love rooms that look like they have evolved over decades and decades. Rooms that tell a story...have a soul. With interiors generally if you throw enough money at anything you'll get SOMETHING to look okay. The challenge is in making a beautiful room, doing so on a real life budget, and still having a wonderful result. I LOVE LOVE LOVE those kinds of challenges!
I help friends with their homes and I love the challenge of helping teens and tweens create their own space. It makes me think outside of my traditional mindset and style affinity when I work in funky or modern or minimal styles which force me to use a different eye and approach...I love that!
I hope you like my rooms. Best Regards and may ALL of your decorating visions be dreamy.
Always House Stylin' and Yours Truly Always, A Babe on a Budget!!
