About Mary

Embracing the changes...

My days are primarily centered around caring for my three children, with a strong focus on Jesus, family, and my heartfelt passion for interior design. I firmly believe in the quote that if you love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life. For me, interior design isn’t a job; it’s a gift I’m grateful for. I often had clients who struggle to conceptualize designs for their homes and bring their ideas to life. That’s where I came in to assist them in turning their visions into reality. ♥

Expanding my family from a party of three to a bustling group of five in recent years has unquestionably presented its fair share of hurdles, yet I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Rather than altering my family, I’ve chosen to reshape my own world to accommodate them by reducing my involvement in client projects and directing a greater portion of my attention towards being fully present for my loved ones.

Interior Designer to Creative Entrepreneur

My business motto is undergoing a significant shift, one that aligns more closely with my current life priorities and aspirations. My little ones won’t remain babies forever, and I am determined to savor every
fleeting moment of their precious childhood. The joys of nurturing my marriage, guiding and nurturing my three children and my time with the Lord have become my utmost priorities.

At this juncture in my journey, I’ve made the decision to step away from taking on new clients. By redirecting my energy towards my family, I can be there to witness their growth and nurture their spirits, all while continuing to contribute to the evolving landscape of design through a smaller yet impactful movement. My business philosophy is undergoing a transformation and will begin revolve around crafting innovative content, generating ideas, igniting inspiration, curating style combinations, updating our online store, and addressing inquiries that my followers find valuable.

So now what?

While this shift in my business direction is indeed temporary, its significance lies in its profound impact on both my personal and professional life. As I embrace this season of prioritizing my role as a mother to my children, I am aware that these formative years will pass by in the blink of an eye. This decision underscores the importance of balance and cherishing the fleeting moments that parenthood offers.

During this time, I intend to embark on an exciting journey of creating fresh and captivating content that resonates with my audience. I hope to inspire others through this transitional phase by sharing my experiences, both as a dedicated mother and as a creative entrepreneur. As I mother my children and curate this new content, I invite more people to join me on this journey. Together, we can explore the beauty of blending motherhood with creative entrepreneurship, showcasing the immense potential for growth, inspiration, and fulfillment in embracing life’s diverse roles. I am eager to connect with like-minded individuals who value the importance of family, creativity, and the pursuit of passion, and I hope to build a community that celebrates these values alongside me.
