Born and raised in the South, I love balancing gracious Southern hospitality with the modern sophistication of Washington D.C. culture - all with a hint of my uniquely personal style. Drawing from a career in project management, corporate event planning and the hospitality industry, you'll find my love of organization and eye for detail are equaled only by my affinity for design and décor. I'm at my best when deliberating over details, obsessing over mood boards, or styling a seasonal mantle or tablescape. I believe in being honest, building genuine relationships and having a sense of humor. I love to camp, but love spa days more, I'm a solo runner but love to walk and talk. I share more about my favorite things below!

While my favorite colors may not be blush & bashful (a little Steel Magnolias reference), I was instilled with a sense of gracious Southern hospitality from the women in my family at a tender young age. I'm not sure which is more engrained in me: my love of sweet tea, Spanish moss or front porches!

After spending a number of years north of the Mason-Dixon line (and living in the D.C. area for over 15), I eventually planted a firm set of roots just outside of Washington D.C. with my charming husband, our sweet kiddos Gavin and Evelyn, and two precocious cats Raja & Tikka.

In my very spare downtime, you'll find me in our historic home, sipping coffee or wine on the side porch three seasons out of the year, daydreaming about when I'll finally get to our kitchen reno and likely obsessing over our next house party.

Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must, but be gracious if it kills you!
