What makes a house a home are the personal touches we integrate into our space that tell our story of who we are, what we love and how we live.
I love bringing in those kinds of special touches to my clients’ homes through customized designing and styling. My goal is to create beautiful, comfortable & timeless lived-in spaces in your home that reflect YOU and your practical needs.
My first taste for the home interior design world goes back to my days as a television producer of an Emmy-nominated show called Sell This House. We helped homeowners declutter, re-design and stage their homes to get them sold for top dollar. Working on this show opened my eyes to the power of home design and how something simple as paint color can affect people’s moods and emotions.
Later, I had the opportunity to renovate a townhome that my husband and I bought. The entire process was such a thrill and the end result was worth all the restless nights we spent on a cot in the middle of our renovation zone!
Soon after, friends started hiring me to re-design their home spaces. That’s when I realized I had a new purpose and passion… and voila, Ulivo Home & Design was born!
Ulivo (pronounced: oo-lee-voh) means olive tree in Italian. To me, the olive tree not only symbolizes peace, it also represents timelessness and natural simplicity — two fundamental elements I always strive for when it comes to designing and styling home spaces for my clients.
I decorate each space with the utmost attention to your needs, wishes and lifestyle. Adding special touches, like a piece of art, a family heirloom or a personal photo, into the design plan is my forte. It’s what makes a house a home.
