My Story

I'm just going to be honest here. Having grown up in a family of real estate people, I've been in lots of houses...LOTS!! I started thinking to myself, I could make this room look prettier than that! I've completely renovated by own home from the studs and people tell me it's gorgeous! I've "Refreshed" my home more times than my hubby would care to remember! And I've helped many 'o friend and family refresh their homes. In fact, my first room refresh happened when I was only 15 - my mother's kitchen! Boy, it would be nice to still have those pictures! Simply put, I've always been complemented on my natural ability for design, architecture, space planning, color, decorating, and spotting a good deal!  Decorate for less and repurpose items you already have is my motto! I decided to put these talents to use doing something I LOVE and The Refreshed Nest was born!

My Approach

This ain't your mama's Decorating Den! I beat to my own drummer! And I listen...and will not try to persuade you into a style or color palette that you don't absolutely love! Your Nest is Best! It has to be yours!

You can count on me to use my creativity, eye for space and color, as well as my experience (and just good old-fashioned knack) for decorating and designing to make your rooms come alive! When you walk into your home, I want you to say, "Yay! I'm Home!! I will meet with you and discuss what rooms you want to "Refresh" using things you already own by giving them a twist or a turn or some new fabric! I can also purchase furnishings and accessories to add to what you already have based on your budget, if you prefer. The combination of these two approaches is where I've had success!

Meet the Team

Write something about the people who make your business go or your philosophy behind customer service.
Why? Because people want to know who they're doing business with. It's a human thing.
