Do you Houzz?

I use Houzz and Pinterest so often for ideas on projects.  It is like having an inspirational magazine at your fingertips!

One of my favorite projects ever-this photo was added to 19,283 Ideabooks on Houzz!

This Living Room is a Beauty!

Spring Parade 2013, with Tim Verstrate Custom Homes –  One of my favorite rooms in the house was the living room that opened up to the screened porch.  The furniture, fireplace, built-ins, ceiling-it was a winner!




Still One of My favorite Rooms. Ever.

I was just thinking about some of my favorite projects and rooms, and this one from last year is still a standout for me.  The matching sofas.  The fabulous beams.  The wall panel detail….

Texture and Then Some!

The simplicity of this white and rattan bowl, paired with the vintage primitive wood, and the feminine aqua glass balls makes a stunning table top display for coffee table or dining table -would this work in your home?!

I Love Love Love This Home……..

I really truly love what I do….I mean really…it is a gift to be invited into peoples lives and homes…..


Great designers don’t take this granted!  We take our job and trust in us seriously, and live and breathe the project until completion.


This home for me was my favorite yet!    The clients are friends, and gave me total trust, and the end result showed, I think…

Sometimes I joke that I should just retire!  I recently spent time with my friend/client, and she shared with me that this is her favorite too, and that she really feels home there.  That is the best compliment I could want…..





Spring Parade 2014

I am reflecting back to the spring-what an exciting and busy time!  This award winning  house on Cedar Lake in Jenison, a  collaboration  with Celebrity Builders, was a fresh take on lakeside living.  Rob and Troy do an excellent job, and they have a home in the Fall Parade 2014.
