My style can best be described as “Casual Glamour.” I’m a laid-back gal who LOVES fancy things – the girl who wears ripped-up jeans with Valentino’s at backyard barbecues and serves Friday night pizza on her best china. I love to incorporate that feeling of Casual Glamour into all of my spaces. I believe that everything should be able to be touched, used and enjoyed.
Before moving to Los Angeles, I grew up in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, where I received a scholarship to study theatre at the highly regarded Texas Christian University. While studying theatrical performance and design, I learned to embody other people’s worlds and express intentions visually. I used that knowledge to transition into my ultimate passion of interior design… a career I didn’t even know existed until I attended college.
However, that passion for interiors was planted many years prior from a very personal need for a home. As a child, my first “home” was my parent’s window tinting shop. They often had residential jobs and I would tag along to what seemed like grand mansions in South Lake and old Fort Worth. To me, these houses didn’t just say money: they spoke of safety, love and comfort. As a little girl, I imagined what it would be like to live in those homes and decorated them in my mind (with the help of the Spiegel catalogue). Many years later, I would come full circle after working with local designers for 5 years; I founded Glamour Nest in 2009.
