Add-on’s, renovations, and new construction homes can seem intimidating to take on. How do you even get started? How do you find and manage contractors? What surprises should you anticipate coming up? How long do these things take?

In this podcast, you will learn all that and so much more!

How to Incorporate Your Personality Into a Space

What you will learn from this episode:

  • Incorporate your personality into your home

  • Stop following trends!

  • Decorate for what works for your life right now, not for five to ten years from now

Today’s topic is one I touch on quite regularly because I want to keep reminding everyone how important it is and how you can get it right. And that is –  the personality of your home, how you stamp you into a space.

This could be a brand new home that you’re building from the ground up, or it could be an addition you’re adding to your home. 

The reason I want to talk about this more in depth is because I had recently brought up ‘going with your gut’ on social media. If you missed it, it had to do with women not listening to their inner sixth sense, innate feeling, whatever you’d like to call it and making decisions that innately they knew they shouldn’t be making. And this leads me to today’s topic. 

So many times people will tell me they’ve done their research and found a formula to use, and they ask if it’s what I use, too. And while there may be some interior designer’s out there that use formulas to produce faster work, I do not. I do not believe that there is a formula out there that will fit everyone’s style. People typically get hung up on formulas and think that if they don’t follow it they must be doing something wrong. 

Instead, I want you to think about where you are in your life right now? Who’s living with you? What stage of life are you in? If you have children, how long will they be in the house? Things of that nature.  

Please don’t waste your time finding out what’s trending, what will be hot in five years, what HGTV is saying.

It’s your home. It’s your space. It needs to reflect you. Right here, right now. 

So how do you make this happen?

You are going to stay true to what you want, right now. You have permission from me, to build a room, build a home, that follows your personality right now, based on a little knowledge of where your life might be a year or so from now. But going beyond that point, is just foolish. We just truly do not know what our futures hold.

I love hearing how people bring in their own style and live with their family, partner, or alone. And how it makes them feel when they keep these elements in mind. I would love to hear about your project and hear about how you’re going hog wild in your own home with your own style! So feel free to email me at
