About Me

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m Marissa – an avid home renovation DIY-er and lover of interior design. I’ve remodeled three of my own homes and counting. I’m a single mom of two boys. I have a 5-year-old son and a 2-year-old foster son who has lived with me since infanthood (soon to be adopted). Home life is busy!

I am biased toward traditional European-inspired interiors, with a touch of organic modern texture. I love patterns, wall art, and a great vintage piece of furniture! I try to make rooms tell a story – for myself, friends, family, and my clients along the way.

I was born and raised in Nothern California, then spent most of my 20s in London, England. Since then, I’ve also lived in Nevada and New Jersey before settling in Idaho! I draw much of my inspiration from the variety of places I’ve lived, and from my travels around the world.

I hope you will use this site as a resource for your design projects big and small, from total tear downs to choosing window treatments. I want to help you create cherished spaces in your home!
