Ok- I have finally made it my business to blog about my business. So....let's get to it! Before we begin this wonderful journey together, I would like to give you all a bit of background on how I came to do what I do.
I have loved decorating and design since I was just a small precious child, rearranging furniture when my parents least expected it. I carried this passion through my teen years, and was often known to bury my sorrows in a can of paint when boyfriend troubles arose. I think I am the only college student who spent their hard-earned, part-time job money on Fiesta-ware. (Yes, I still have all of it and I swear that my collection is going to fund my children's college education!!)
(Side note: These are just a few of my Fiesta pieces: the green bowl in the background is by far the most valuable piece I own because it was given to me by my Grandmother....or rather, I begged for it after I realized she had a coveted piece of Fiesta among her mish-mash of serving bowls.

Hence, I birthed my third greatest creation: Homestyling101, LLC.
Now at Homestyling101, I offer two distinct services. I offer decorating services to both Residential and Commercial clients and I offer Home Staging services to both home-sellers and Realtors. I am excited to have this blog as an avenue to share some of my thoughts, ideas and experiences in this great, crazy-land of design. I hope some of my posts will serve as inspiration for you to strive for accessible design in your own homes!
Whew! Now that the first post is over- I think I got the hang of this.
