3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?

I am constantly inspired by my close knit community of lifestyle bloggers. Seeing the spaces they are creating sparks an excitement in me that wants to see how I can use my creativity to design spaces that combine function, thrift store finds, and fantastic design.

Magazines! They are a wonderful sources of inspiration for me.

5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?

Doing what I am passionate about keeps my DIY loving self motivated to continue transforming lost pieces into home decor I love. But passion without work goes nowhere. Write down three things each day I want to focus and just do it!
