My passion for homes originated inside the walls where I grew up in England, Norway and California. When I was a teenager, my parents bought an old House built in 1960. From tearing down walls, roofing and reinstalling plumbing, the House was entirely renovated from top to bottom, and I loved being involved in every step of the way.
As I got older, my passion for ‘the Home’ cultivated into a hobby and motivated me to become a realtor.
After getting married in 2013, my husband and I bought our first house together. The house was a new construction and I was able to select every finish and configure all the details to reflect our unique style. It has always been my deepest passion to design — from interior decorating to conceptualizing a major remodeling project.
My friends, relatives and my parents always come to me for advice or a second opinion whenever they face interior design decisions, whether it’s a major remodeling project or picking out furniture. This experience has helped me with staging homes before photography and showing it to potential buyers. I truly love helping people with interior design based on their unique style.
I love to travel, learning and observing the different types of architectural designs and interior designs in other cultures around the world. It gives me inspiration for new ideas and refresh my vision for each unique house.
