Happy Haute Home

the fashionably elegant modern home


Hi, and welcome to my blog. Being first generation American has greatly influenced my design style throughout my life. I grew up in a traditional home with european influences of farmhouse and french country style.

Over the years, I have gravitated more towards modern traditional, and transitional styles. Presently, I’m having a love affair with the modern farmhouse style, the blending of old and new, rustic and refined, burlap and crystal.  One of my biggest passions is making our house a home, one room at a time.

My design journey started 15 years ago. It has been a long process of learning and discovery with successes and mishaps along the way. Having renovated several homes these past years, I have learned a great deal from my experiences about home design, decor, and style. I’d like to share my journey with you and hopefully inspire you to find your design style. On my site, you will find tablescape, home decor, home renovation, and home ideas of all types.

I am a wife, mom and CEO of our household, chef, housekeeper, chauffeur, teacher, school room parent, story teller and so much more. I am married to my wonderful husband of 14 years, have 2 kids and like all moms, have a very busy life. Being a career woman most of my life, I made the decision a couple years ago to stay home for my family and have not regretted it one bit.

I’m so glad you found my site! Grab a cup of coffee, sit down and take a tour, join me on my journey to creating a “Happy Haute Home”.
