How would you describe your home style, in a few words?

A Modern Farmhouse with a twist!



Who designed the interior of your home?

My husband and I renovated & designed our home ourselves. I decorated it, I guess you can say I have a natural eye for interior and exterior design.



What do you love about your home?

The peace and serenity it brings when you enter. And the acreage we have that allows us to enjoy nature, farm and grow our own food. It’s like a peace of paradise but only 30 min the City.



What challenges have you faced obtaining or decorating your home (if any)?

No challenges at all, actually it’s like it was destined for us to live here, everything aligned up how it’s supposed to be. Being retired, I wanted a home that allowed me to farm, garden and entertain with my friends. A Modern yet farmhouse kinda flow.



What’s the blackest feature in your home 😉 ?

Our massive BLACK deck & outdoor oasis that my husband and I built and designed ourselves. I dreamed it he built it. It’s definitely a conversation piece once you step outside.

My soundtrack consists of Boney James , Todd Dulaney, Kem, Dappy T Keys are in rotation

What’s the most expensive purchase in your home?

Our Kitchen Renovation costed the most, but our dear friend was the contractor which help offset it a little.



Name some of your go-to places for home decor.

Modani, CostPlus World Market, Arhaus, West Elm, Wayfair, Homegoods, & Amazon to name a few.

What’s next for you in your home journey?

We are adding a luxury walk in pool to the deck and expanding our garden



Whats your one piece of advice for the B+H Homies that want to enhance their space?

It’s not about how big your home is, it’s all about how it makes you feel. Let your home be a peaceful sanctuary for you and your family where you can run to it not from it
