not by default.

        It begins with           your environment.



If you're ready to tame the chaos at home and in life, you're in the right place. 

Here you'll find resources to simplify your environments and create a more calming, natural home and workspace so you can begin to thrive.


Is This You?

I want to simplify my home and design it to be calm and peaceful, but I just don't know where to start. I don't have a ton of time or money right now but want ways to create a home that will help me relax.

I'm ready to get a jumpstart on organizing and decluttering my home, but I don't want to be overwhelmed. I want instructions to follow that will take me only about 30 minutes a day and get results that will give me peace.

I know what I want and I'm almost there but need a second opinion on how to cross the finish line on creating a simple home and my best life. An hour with a home & lifestyle designer for advice would be great!

"The course and the guides really helped me to make the small changes in my home and office I needed to feel less scattered and overwhelmed. I was able to follow the easy directions and now really enjoy my spaces. Plus I find it easier to focus and I think I'm more productive. I know I'm definitely calmer!"

Don't have time to design & source everything you need for a calm, soothing and naturally rejuvinating home? 

Let me help make it much easier for you.

With an e-fresh design plan you'll receive a design board that's personalized to work for you in your home, repurposing as much of your own furnishings as possible and sourcing new items when needed, but always within your budget.  You'll get an hour of FaceTime with me to ask all of your questions, plus detailed instructions on DIY, furniture placement and purchasing. 

E-design is very affordable, eliminates the time and headache of trying to design your home yourself, and saves you from making costly mistakes.

Why wait? 

I'll help you turn your space into the beautiful, meaningful, restful home you need and deserve.
