Favorite Area in the House

“I like our living room because that's where I have my favorite mirror table, and that's where I entertain visitors, so that's the most fixed area in my house!”

Favorite Home Accessory

“My mirror console table that I got for a song from a friend of mine. I've always wanted a mirror table but I always found them too expensive. I also love my mixed-print deer wall art from Anuc.”

Favorite Recycling Treat

“My husband works for a liquor company and so we always have whiskey, wine, and other liquor bottles after we've consumed them. These get resurrected as pitchers, flower vases, and even bangles and necklace holders!” 

Favorite Home Scent

“I like different scents for different areas of the house. For the living room, I like warm, welcoming, and yummy scents like vanilla. For bedrooms, something soothing like lavender helps me sleep. Lemon and other citrus scents are great for the bathrooms!”
