Hi, I’m Valerie.  I love coffee, rainy days, and fresh flowers.  I love dates with my husband and the sound of my kids laughing.  I love warm brownies and glorious sunsets.

I also love design, words, and helping others.  My life provides me the opportunity to merge those together.  

I’ve been in the interior design business for over 18 years – long enough to see trends come and go and some come back again, whether we want them to or not.  Regardless of the trends, my goal with every client is to create a space they love coming home to.  It is such an honor to be welcomed into homes and assist in the rewarding process of renewing of rooms. Read more about my design business.

I’ve been writing most of my life.  In journals, in school English classes, as editor of my high school yearbook, and occasional blog posts.  Writing is a creative outlet where I process facets of my faith.  Read more about my writing.


The labels that hold the most value to me are wife and mom.  I’m wife to Nate and mom to four precious kiddos.  We live in the Austin area where we take annual pictures in fields of bluebonnets. Our twin boys are ten, our third son is six, and our daughter is three.  The path God took us on to become parents, have twins, endure through NICU stays, and experience the miraculous blessing of adoption have profoundly shaped me into who I am today. 

And the adventure continues. 

I’m glad you’re here.  I hope to inspire you to renew your home, making it a place you love coming home to, or to renew your heart, clearing out soul clutter with biblical truth.
