Home Tour





Creating a beautiful & functional home for my family is a passion of mine!  

Our brick colonial on one acre built in the the late 80's was seriously dated when we bought it 8 years ago.  We've since painted (Diy & hired) almost every room in the house.  The biggest challenge was making our home feel more modern and updated, all while on a tight      budget.  We also have a few cherished dark wood family antiques, so I used neutral furnishings and soft accent colors in blues and greens. Here are a few spaces, Welcome!

  9. Your house is beautiful and I love your décor style, which I always think it's the most important part otherwise a home is not a home, without the owners special touch! Love your round coffee table in the living room.

    1. Thank you! There are so many square elements in our family room, and it flows onto our rectangular shaped screened porch. The round coffee table really breaks up all those straight lines.
