Emily’s mother taught her the basics of sewing, which has been a great help in creating custom window treatments and bedding for her clients. Hands-on work with hanging wallpaper, hammering barn wood and wainscoting to walls, refinishing wood floors, and decorating with vintage décor also aided Emily’s love for design. Her parents always had some home remodel projects in the works, and the kids worked alongside them.
She has a great appreciation for one’s budget. Optimizing her client’s investment for a project is of the utmost importance. Emily is an excellent example of someone who can have a stylish home on a restricted budget. She has the experience, the education, and the love to back up her work.
And finally, as a young adult, it was inevitable that hanging drywall and mudding walls was a fun pastime for Emily. She was taught various mudding techniques and how to impact the look of the space by experts in the field. By the time Emily was 19, she was refinishing her own home. Today, her home is her sanctuary and favorite place to be. Along with her kids, of course.
