Raised in the South, I bring a different perspective on home design. My southern culture is part of my love of the vintage. As a Mississippian we hold onto tradition and our past. Family pieces are handed down from one generation to the next.

Southerners are passionate people, and I pour that passion into my work, because it’s worth it. Whether it’s a shower curtain, headboard, tablecloth, coffee table or chairs from a garage sale. There is an abundance of soul and heart that radiates from each of my pieces. More people need to believe their home is no different and the region where they live makes all the difference. Most of us want to live in a home that is an extension of who we are.

A friend asked me once, “Why do you love old things?”

Easy. I don’t see them as old. Furniture ages gracefully with character. You don’t have the same feeling from a newer pieces. Vintage furniture has a story; it will live on to telling it long after me. I am just lucky enough to be allowed to play a small role.

Hopefully, you will connect to my sensibilities while exploring your own, to be inspired to do more. Those who wish to learn about old collections of furniture coming from a place of passion, and understanding when to shake it up. True design comes when you break the rules and breathe.
