The creative journey begins!
Hi Everyone! I'm so very excited to announce the opening of my new creative venture Effortlessly Eclectic!
As many of you know, I am a passionate creative working in the field of Interior Design. I've had really wonderful experiences collaborating with other talented designers in the hospitality design industry to create gorgeous hotel rooms, cocktail lounges, and private villas, and have also greatly enjoyed working one on one with people as a home stylist through retail outlets.
But I had these two other burning passions that I just had to explore further.
The first passion of mine,... I have always absolutely loved creating handmade art and decor for my own home, & to give as gifts to loved ones. Refinishing found objects in creative ways, making art & decor in any medium I can get my hands on, and then looking around me & seeing all these things that I created that are totally one of a kind. It's just so much fun!
The second passion, I love expressing myself in my home, & helping others to do the same. I believe we are all such very unique & exciting creatures, and that we deserve so much more than to come home to a bland boring home. Our homes are the one place where we can go hog wild & totally express ourselves, and no one can tell us we can't! I see so many people stuck in this fear and worry as they wonder what the "right" paint color is, which is the "right" sofa they should get. Yes, there are a few design rules that are good to stick to & those I'm happy to share with you. But the big questions I see so many people missing that I want them to ask themselves and take a little time to think about is "What's right for me? What makes me happy?" Our homes can be our own amazing little world where we are surrounded by the colors, patterns, textures, and imagery that express who we are and what makes us feel great. Coming home to a place that is truly all you feels totally incredible. And that's a feeling I really want more people to experience.
So I invite you to join me in a journey in to greater creativity and self expression in your home and life. I've created a little online shop filled with all kinds of fun art and decor that I made by hand to share with you. And please join me here on my blog, as well as all over social media, because I'll be sharing all kinds of tips on how to style your home your way, and even giving you a little sneak peak into my art studio to see what I'm creating now.
A great big thank you hug to all of you who have been so supportive of me in following my dreams & creating Effortlessly Eclectic! Much love to you all!
