When I was little, I loved touring open houses with my parents, and I often found myself imagining what it would be like to live in the spaces I saw. Not thinking much about this as an adult, when the time came to choose a career, I went to school for business, specifically organizational development, to make sure employees had what they needed to be successful and organizations were structured in a way to be as efficient as possible.
As I worked at organizations from The Washington Post to Under Armour to The Boston Consulting Group, I found myself drawn to my childhood interests more and more and started thinking about the different ways I could decorate the rooms in my home (well, really one room, since most of my homes were studio apartments). This enthusiasm for my own projects turned into projects for friends and family, many who wanted help decorating but also needed help organizing spaces from pantries to basements.
In working on these projects, I realized that interior decorating was something I wanted to do more of, and after taking classes, poring over design magazines and blogs, and enjoying success with friends and family, I decided to open Home Methods to help others with their interior spaces.
When working on projects, I put my business skills to use by making sure that projects stay on track and organized while also building relationships with my clients so that I get to know you and your needs, and create a space that really feels like yours.
I have lived across the U.S. and internationally in Prague (travel being a big hobby of mine), but I currently live in Baltimore with my number one installer of things, husband Dave, and our two dogs, Gus and Scarlet.
