My design style is Contemporary.  I am drawn to the clean lines, smooth surfaces, and the up-to-date look.  It’s important for me to have a casual space that functions well and also has a current sense of style. As far as my personal life, I most enjoy spending time with my amazing son.  We play games, do crafts together, and love to go to the park.  There are so many special moments at his age and I love to share them with him.  When I have that rare “me time”, I like to catch up on my favorite shows, bake, and get a quick cat nap (don’t we all wish that?)

    The tables are really cool and the lamp shades are a very good idea. I would have never thought of that.

    Wow, so cool and I love all the Earth Day ideas! The recycled glass countertops are very nice looking; Dal Tile carries a great line of those in different colorways. I adore the recycled paper ETSY light.

    I think every industry has a responsibility to help protect our environment.
