I made a great find in 2015 - Trove Market, an online thrift shopping site and app called usetrove. I reached out to them initially to understand better how to shop using their site. Incorporating upcycled, repurposed or vintage pieces into my designs brings to the space a rich, authentic touch.
We became fast design friends and were soon collaborating on a room design with items being sold on Trove, as well as other favorite digital shopping haunts. The look inspired by British Rock-N-Roll lifestyle, resulted in one look, for two kids rooms - a nursery (ROCK-A-BÉBÉ) and a teen bedroom (ROCK & ROLL-ING STONES).

I knew I wanted a business that combined my love of interior design, styling and retail. What I also knew was that I wanted to work from my home studio to be near my little one and that I wanted to reach an audience larger than the greater Omaha area... read the entire interview by Trove Market.
