What other offers do you have?
How does a virtual consultation work?
Will you come to my home?
Do you offer advice on a "as needed" basis?
Have you ever had this dream?
Your home is clean and organized with everything in its proper place……
The mudroom is organized. Backpacks on hooks, shoes put away and papers filed…….
Your kitchen is bright and inviting….counters are uncluttered, clean and shiny……and it functions really well.
You grab a glass of wine and hit the living room for some much needed downtime. It invites you in with beautiful fabrics and textures……..Colors that calm and inspire…..
Ahhhhh…Your home is a sanctuary from the storm of daily life………..
You lay back on the couch with a deep breathe and smile….eyes closed…..
Life. Is. Good……
And then? Bam! You wake up to reality.
“BUT I’M SO TIRED!”
Between working all day and nightime obligations, you’re just too tired to deal with the mess. You know you need to get organized and you’d love to entertain, but it’s all just too overwhelming. You want your home to be something amazing to come home to and welcome loved ones, but lately, it feels more like just another burden weighing you down, and honestly? An embarrassment.
SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
You deal with the overwhelm by ignoring it and just heading for the couch with a glass of wine and another frozen pizza for the family.
Defeated, you ignore the impulse for a third glass of wine and take a spin through your phone……Pintrest/Instagram/Houzz. They always deliver.
You flip on HGTV……
And then you see it and say to yourself…………
“A-ha! The perfect mudroom! I LOVE it! Chip and Joanna make it look so damn easy too. It all just happened in 27 minutes, didn’t it? I’m doing that THIS weekend!”
You’re all full of spit and vinegar. Come Saturday morning? You are on a mission.
Sure….. it’s been 20 years of accumulation, but it shouldn’t take longer than the weekend, right?
AND SATURDAY MORNING COMES……
There you are…..up early……life-giving Starbucks in hand…..standing among the rainbow of paint swatches………….
You are COMPLETELY overwhelmed.
You ask your husband/wife/toddler-in-cart/teenage paint counter guy……
“What white do you like? Dove White or Snowbound? Or…….maybe I should do a butter-yellow??”
Blink. Blink……the blank looks come back at you. They’re all thinking, “Is there really even a difference?”
Your patience and your day are disappearing faster than snow in July………..as well as your ambition. All you wanted was the creamy white mudroom you saw on HGTV.
You return home……defeated…..paint in hand……and it hits you, smack dab in the face……..Reality.
All the shoes, jackets, backpacks, Target returns, Goodwill bags, school/work papers, etc. They’re all there to remind you of how big of a task this is really going to be.
And it ain’t gonna take no 27 minutes and a gallon of paint.
You become completely overhwelmed (again), so you head to the fridge for something……anything…….
And it’s not even noon.
I GET IT. YOU’RE STUCK AND DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.
Stop banging your head against the wall and stop taking ALL the advice out there.
I believe, deep down, you know exactly what you want for your house. Exactly what you need.
I’M GOING TO HELP YOU FIND IT AND SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.
For starters……Just start simply. Stop trying to do all of it at once. Take one area at a time.
You can have an amazing house. This WILL happen. Just stop wanting and start doing.
You’ll see with a great design and daily action, you can create what you’ve always wanted.
You’ll have an amazing home, which, in turn, will allow you to live an amazing life.
I encourage you to get off Pintrest, Houzz, Instagram, HGTV, Facebook and all the others……
Stop the “compare and despair” and start taking some action to make life beautiful for yourself.
Stop buying needless organizational systems and bad decor.
Stop moving stuff around only to feel you haven’t made a dent.
Stop making costly design mistakes.
IT’S TIME TO LEARN HOW TO CREATE SOMETHING AMAZING FOR YOURSELF.
You can do it. It’s not rocket science. I’m going to help you along the way. It’s your home…it needs your taste.
It’s not about making your home “perfect”. It’s about having your home inspire you, nurture you and work for you….instead of you working for it.
A well-designed home won’t solve everything….but it can solve a lot. It will create the literal space and calm you need in your life to relax, so you can create what you really desire in life.
When you have a beautifully simple home, you will:
De-clutter and get organized.
Start fresh with a blank slate.
Re-design your home so it works for YOU – not you working for it.
Feel inspired every day you walk through the door.
Entertain your friends and family like a Boss.
No matter what state your house is in now.
It’s possible. You can do it. I’m can help.
