What’s one of your favorite design pieces you have in your own home?

I absolutely love my hide on hair entryway bench. It’s gorgeous and so functional for guests and my family when entering the house…..taking on and off shoes, setting items down as your walking in, etc!

What is your favorite design trend of 2016?

I’m actually liking the light pinky rose that’s come on hot this year. The one I like is slightly lighter than the rose quartz color from Pantone but close to the same. It’s a beautiful color used in those thick knit throws that your seeing everywhere

Do you follow any other blogs for inspiration?  If so, which ones?

I like Inspire Me Home Decor. I’ve written two blog posts for her and the others are always so great!

Can you explain a recent project you’ve been working on?

We recently completed and listed our latest investment property. It sold with multiple offers, the style was perfect for a Midwest family. Of course a little glitz was added to the home that’s totally typical of my style!  (Before and after pictures below.)
