Simple Epic Living

Hey there, my name is Stephanie and I am a lover of many things! One of which is Interior Design and everything beautiful that goes into a home. As of this Summer I have been doing Interior Design in some shape or form for 20 years! I honestly don’t feel like I am old enough to say that. Even though some days I feel that old, especially when I am attempting to do things that came much easier once upon a time, such as waterskiing! 😉

There are a few reasons I love this career! First of all I love getting to know people, their taste, their lifestyle and them personally. I am a people person 110%!!!! Another reason I love Interior Design is I love making things pretty. Whether it is a paint job, rearranging a room, or anything that breathes new life into an area it is so fun for me! I love transformations or bringing out the best in a space. Lastly I love it because I think everyone should have a home that reflects them and feels good. A space they want to be in. I am a homebody by nature and it is one of my favorite things to be at home with my family. Whether it is cooking a meal, snuggled up or being outside with our animals. Our homes will have memories for us and our loved ones for a lifetime!

While I am not here today to tell you about how to style your open shelving or what the trending paint colors are. Today I want to share with you something that has been on my mind for a while now. Like I said I absolutely love design and all the pretty things! There is also a part of me that wants to encourage those of you who may not have your dream home yet to not feel discouraged. I just want to say no matter where you are living and no matter what your budget you can have a space that feels good to you!

You don’t have to have the latest and greatest of everything, just incorporate a few things that have meaning or excite you! Another option is some new paint on the walls or new throw pillows and a floral to freshen up your space! These things can do wonders! Sometimes I feel like keeping up with the Jones’ can be daunting and just a little reminder that what truly feels good to you and your loved ones is the most important! There is nothing wrong with a Simple Yet Epic Life. Some of my truly favorite things or times are some of the simplest. I look forward to sharing more about my goal to achieve a Simplie Epic Life in the future! Maybe just maybe you will feel the same!
