You modern woman, you! Your favorite style is all combining two seemingly opposite styles. Especially traditional style with modern elements.


Transitional design is somewhat difficult to pin down, but by definition is a combination of two opposite styles. In practice, it’s a mix of traditional design with modern elements. Think traditional wainscoting and antiques paired with clean-lined modern pieces. But it’s not a hodge-podge like eclectic decor is. Think of it like a younger version of traditional design. It’s timeless, with a hint of the current.

Hi, I’m Shannon.

Before we go any further, let me introduce myself. I believe home is the most important place on earth and it’s my passion to help other women create the home they’ve always wanted right where they are.

After a couple of decades of making our house a home (while homeschooling three kids), two years of professional interior design training, and two traditionally-published home decor and organization books, I am so excited to share what I’ve learned with you.
