Ok I have been a very bad blogger as of late, and I am really going to try a be better. I have had very little time for projects as the large part of cleaning out has consumed most of my time.
My parents recently sold the house that I grew up in, and that they had been living in for 30 something years, and let's just say they have a difficult time parting with things. This includes all books, dolls, stuffed animals, papers, projects, etc. that I had as a child. So suddenly, I had a bunch of stuff delivered to my already bursting house!
As many of you know going through stuff from your childhood and actually getting rid of it is very difficult, enter my amazing husband. He sat with me and brought me back to the rational realization that I didn't need to keep it all and I didn't need to spend hours going through it! In one morning we managed to get through most of the stuff and some things from the attic, taking some to goodwill, leaving some children's toys out on the curb for free, and tossing a bunch of junk. Yes, i still have piles of old photos that I want to scan and toss, and one large box of sentimental things I want to keep, but we have managed to get the everyday visible part of the house cleaned up and usable, as witnessed by my guestroom (aka storage for thing I need to do).
I live outside of Boston with my husband, two children, and dog. For the past 8 years I have been working with clients to help them make their home dreams a reality. From helping to build homes from the ground up to helping round out already finished spaces, I listen to my clinets and let their vision guide our process. I have always been a creative person planning spaces and working to make them function better. After completing the Residential Interiors program at Boston Architectural College I learned how to combine my love for funcion and flow with my eye for color, scale, and balance. As a graduate of New York University's Stern School of Business, I understand project planning and budget management. My experience working with clients, contractors, and architects helps to coordinate and streamline the home building and renovation process, helping my clients to have the home they dream of with less of the stress that comes with building and decision making.
