Creating inspired rooms, one step at a time

I started The Inspired Room decorating business four years ago because I didn’t quite fit the mold of other decorators. I wanted to help women to love LIVING in their homes. I began to help others create rooms that were not only inspired by their family’s own passions, interests and experiences in life but also to create rooms to inspire them to live more fully and intentionally.

My motto became “when life inspires your home, your home will inspire your life.” I felt such a strong connection to the way our homes inspire our life, I wanted to share my passion with others. Thus, the concept of “the inspired room” was born.

If you want to get down to the decorating and homemaking basics of creating your own “inspired room” here is a great place to start! I’ll walk you through “the best of” The Inspired Room blog, just click on the links to read more!
