What inspires you?
There is inspiration all around us! I love to travel, to visit museums, botanical centers, art galleries, antique stores, and to save things for inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest. I’m a huge fan of print media. You will often find me with a book in hand.
Favorite design splurge?
Original artwork, beautiful linens, dishware and candles.
Who or what has been your greatest influencer?
My daughter has been the biggest influencer throughout my design career both personally and professionally. I am ever mindful of how decisions I make affect our path. Having a family has also taught me the true meaning behind “livable” spaces and what it means to create something that is beautiful while still supporting someone’s lifestyle.
What traits do you admire most in others?
Authenticity, kindness, integrity, gratitude, and warmth.
How do you replenish your creativity?
Travel has always fueled my creative side. I’ve found a little time in a happy place spent with someone I love is my biggest energy boost.
What is one color you never tire of?
How do you unwind after a long day?
I tend to decompress outside in the garden or on a walk. By November I start searching for other ways to avoid hibernating in the Des Moines winters.
