Home Midlife Crisis Expert Interview


I was recently asked to be a style expert on the Midlife Schmidlife podcast. You may remember that I was the very first guest on this podcast talking about my journey from Banker to Designer.

Here is a break down of five things you can do now to spruce up you home:

  1. Declutter and clean

  2. Repurpose pieces in either the same space or in a new room

  3. Fresh paint to breathe life into vintage pieces

  4. Reupholster existing well loved pieces

  5. Purchase investment pieces

In this episode, I give my top secret advice about investing in pieces for your home. Here’s a hint, I learned it from grandma GG.

Not sure what your decorating style is? Funky Farmhouse? Shabby Chic? I share my philosophy on personal style and what that means to you. I remove the pressure of coming up with a style and instead ask, how you want to feel in a room.

I touch on creating dual-purpose rooms when the kids head off to college. Striking a balance to be place where they can come home but also staking a claim more for a space that supports us everyday.

I also talk about ideas for a budget-friendly ways to update your decor, from painting furniture and updating hardware to looking at consignment stores.

If you are interested in working with me but don’t live in the San Diego area, I offer my signature e-design service to help you with your own space.
