Occupation Designer/Stylist - interior and garden
Location Northern, Illinois, United States
Introduction For as long as I can remember, I’ve been “styling” things; days spent in the gravel designing floor plans with pebbles, a secret leafy hide-a-way inside a shrub by the lake, frugally building a dollhouse and all the furnishings using cardboard, a donated wallpaper book and found objects. I was appalled when, as a teen, my parents purchased an entire bedroom set for my little room --- all I’d EVER wanted was a daybed and odd little prints tacked on the walls…. For the last 23 years, home has been Stone Meadow Farm, an 1840’s farmhouse on 5 acres. My tastes have evolved through the years, but the foundation has stayed the same – my belief that modest things can be more beautiful than anything expensive, that style comes from one’s heart, and… find the FUN in everything!
