What inspired you to start your business?
After years of working in the fashion industry from everywhere to Concept Design to Sales, I finally decided it was time to do my own thing. I wanted to be my own boss and use my creativity for my business. I was on my honeymoon in Greece where I felt extremely inspired and motivated which is when I made the final decision to go with my gut and go for it! So glad I did!
What makes your house a home?
I would have to say coziness and light are two of the most important things that make my house a home. I love having white candles lit almost every night for myself or for my guests. I also love creating a cozy space where everyone is comfortable and wants to come over. Music, wine, coffee table books and plants are a few other of my must haves in my home!
What's one thing you love to do that you get to do almost every day?
I am big on photography so I would have to say getting to take great photos of the product I am selling and at my events. I also love being a buyer and getting to chose really unique brands that I know my customers will enjoy as much as I do.
What simple pleasures do you like to enjoy?
My simple pleasures mostly include things that inspire me. I love traveling and that is where I get most of my inspiration and best ideas from. I love home design and fashion and creating mood boards at home that create a collage of all my favorite things.
Name one thing on your "bucket list."
I would have to say traveling to as many countries as possible.
Why did you choose to be part of Nest on Main?
Nest on Main is doing something extremely unique right now in the industry. I love that they create a place where numerous artists, designers and small shops like myself can showcase their work. It's a team effort and a great idea and business :)
