My passion for creating beautiful pieces and spaces has been life long. Born outside of Chicago and traveling the world for the last 15 years, I am continually inspired by my surroundings. I find inspiration in anything and everything around me. With every project I seek new concepts, new techniques and new materials to create that one of a kind piece that compliments each clients own unique space. I love the quality and craftsmanship vintage furniture has to offer, it is quality that we just don’t see anymore. I also love the way that a single piece of furniture can change a room simply by adding color. An item of furniture that would normally be discarded and considered dated can become the centerpiece of your home.
I’d been wanting to start my business for a while, but just wasn't sure on the timing. Then one day, with a little encouragement from my husband, I decided there is no day like today and The Urban Farmhouse was born. I love the hunt of finding furniture and reclaiming forgotten pieces. It’s a great outlet; it’s relaxing to hold a paint brush in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. The creative process has always been something that motivates and soothes me. Transforming old, outdated furniture into a new, beautiful one of a kind piece is a wonderful joy. I search all over to find high quality vintage furniture that I love and seek out those that will bring an unique warmth to the home. After a bit of painting, restoring and updating, these pieces become something special that will add character and style to any home. I believe in creating spaces that are more than just rooms, but are experiences that should be cherished. Combined with my passion for all things beautiful, I can turn any old room into a truly one of a kind space. Join me as I share furniture makeovers, room transformations and styling tips.
