My clients’ walls are one of the main décor projects I love to focus on in their space and then move to the floors and ceilings. I adore the challenge of designing spaces to come together to promote my clients’ personalities.

Your wall ideas are an expression of your personality and you don’t have to hang them in a certain form or fashion. Each wall can express your colorful personality, charm and energy. You can ask yourself this question for each wall you choose to decorate: “What will make this wall more exciting?” You do not have to spend a lot of money to have your walls look as if you spent a lot. You can go to discount stores or grab a friend and go to a flea market. Choose and organize them however you want them to hang or lean. The best part of the wall project is you can do it how you feel and allow your kids to be a part of their spaces.
Wall décor projects express our personality; let the creativity in you and your family shine. If walls could talk, let’s give them something to say!
