Fallify-ing in August was a Challenge. Special thanks to #TeamDesRoches who helped me pull off my deadline for Hoss Magazine’s special diy issue. I’m sitting among all the Celebrity designers on this one & will need your vote for Reader’s Choice Award. I’m Fallify-ing your home with Color inside & out. Look for our project pics from the shoot.


Keeping Summer Alive with Vibrant Hues, I’ll be transforming this wall into a Fallify-ing Feature.

“Blank Canvas” is a weekly web series and monthly broadcast TV series that shows you how to make-over any room into a vibrant, striking space!


Using easy to understand design concepts, I’ll show you the process, step-by-step and start to finish letting YOU tap into your own inner creativity!
