Hi, and welcome to my little corner of the world on the US eastern coast.

Home…a place to spend time with the ones you love, a place where happiness is found, a place of peace and comfort, a place of laughter and joy, and most importantly a place where memories are created for generations to come.

We all have a different vision of “home”. Whether home is a charming farmhouse in the country, a home in the city, or a high rise with views for miles, but we all want the feeling of “home”.

I aspire to making our home a place that is casually elegant, warm and welcoming, and a place for family and friends to gather. We have moved several times, remodeling and redecorating extensively with each move, I love a good home project 🙂 My style has developed over the years and changed with the times. I want to share my projects and hope to spread decor inspiration.

Growing up in a European household influenced my love of home decor. Our many trips to Europe throughout my life has shaped my love of architecture and design. I am inspired by European styles, mainly French Country, but I have incorporated different styles into our prior homes such as modern traditional, modern farmhouse, contemporary, and transitional styles.

We presently live in a French Country Home, join me on my quest to bringing modern french country style to life, one room at a time.

On my site, you will find tablescape, home decor, home renovation, and home ideas. I have also included styling ideas, tips and tricks, travel experiences, and premier “haute” home tours you will definitely want to check out…and some favorite recipes.

I am a wife, mom, CEO of our household, chef, housekeeper, chauffeur, teacher, story teller, on our PTO Board and more. I am married to my wonderful husband of 15 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 few years ago to stay home for my family and have not regretted it one bit.

I’m so glad you are here! Grab a cup of coffee, sit down and take a tour, join me on a journey to creating a “Happy Haute Home” the French way.
