Name a trend that will never go out of style:
Cowhide and sheepskin rugs! And black and white anything!
Name a trend that you hope never comes back:
Bright and shiny anything. Too "glam" for my aesthetic.

Best design advice you've ever received:
Remember the finishing touches! I often fall short here, afraid too many pieces would look cluttered, so I would stop before it was fully completed. I learned from both designers at Whitetail that you need to fully finish a job. Some accessory needs to keep in mind? Trays, a books, and rugs pull it all together!
Favorite way to spruce up a space quickly:
Fresh flowers, a bowl of limes or lemons, or whatever is seasonal. Anything organic and green looks fresh and instantly spruces up a space in my opinion!!
Best advice for keeping things organized?
Revisiting your space on a regular basis and minimizing clutter is a MUST!!
Assess your refrigerator and pantry weekly, throwing out what’s old or expired, while making a fresh list of needs!
Beautiful bins that fit your style make it easier to put your things away neatly. Keep in the habit of putting items back in their designated spot. This makes for a tidy efficient environment!!!
