A little about me! I’ve been married to my uber-creative husband Paul for 11 years. I worked briefly as a school psychologist but became a stay at home mom when my oldest child was born, almost 7 years ago. Designing and planning his nursery opened up a whole new creative side of me that I never knew I had. I stayed up late reading blogs, drooling over beautiful and REAL homes. Something about the fact that these were real homes, not magazine styled homes, really meant something to me! It meant that maybe I could achieve beauty in my home too, even though I wasn’t a professional designer, and even though I lived in a normal un-custom house.
Since those days, we have had two more babies, designed two more nurseries, moved to a different home, and painted more walls than I could ever count. Paul has always encouraged and supported the creativity that has now grown into more than a hobby for me. I’m pursing beauty with a purpose. And now, its about time I have a place to share this passion with you- my friends, my family, the few brave who have become my clients, and anyone else who might take this journey with me.
Welcome to The House of Figs!
