White Farmhouse Kitchen with Jadeite Dishes

Hello! It’s Courtney here. Although I have a degree in interior design, it’s become clear to me over the years that what I really love is the concept of creating a home. Much more than the mix of colors, patterns, fabrics, textures, and shapes that make up a house…I just love everything that a home represents for those who enter it.

I get excited about creating a comfortable home, the kind that warmly embraces you back after a long day. I love creating a home that invites others in and makes them feel welcomed right at the front door. I love adding personal details that encourage conversation and help to represent those who live in it. I love creating a home that inspires, rejuvenates, and motivates. I love getting a home organized in such a way that life is less stressful and more efficient.

I love all the details, down to the scents and the sounds that fill up a home. I’m thankful for the memories attached to each place that I’ve lived in, and how each home served our needs during the time we spent there.
