To give us a sneak peek, she answered our home design questions and offered tip and tricks for updating your own home.
Q. In your opinion, what's the most underrated tool in your toolbox?
A. Tape measure- I always think you should measure 3x in order to prevent silly mistakes.
Q. Best home purchase for under $100?
A. Items that make the home a smart home, such as Alexa or Google, connecting lighting or temperature.
Q. What’s your favorite paint color?
A. White. There are many shades of white, and it is a calming, serene color. I am a very colorful person, so white allows for pops of color.
Q. Favorite room in your home?
A. My bedroom- it has a giant window and lets in a lot of natural light. It is my relaxed, zen space.
Q. What home trends are you loving? What styles do you think will emerge in the future?
A. The healing home trend. I love products that make your home feel comforting and bring healing to your space. Such as candles, scents, and plants.
Q. What do you enjoy about being at a home show?
A. Teaching on a larger scale, and impacting more people.
Q. What is an outdated home trend you hope doesn’t come back?
A. Painted accent walls, unless it’s textural or wallpaper, or the accent as the 5th wall.
