The way we design our homes can absolutely move us toward the life we want to build. There are three key pillars to the concept.
Handcrafted - soulful objects
Ritual - make every day special and inspirational 3.
Gather - create spaces that inspire connectivity
Art or found objects that have significance can create a sense of well-being or goal-inspired images can subconsciously move us towards our deepest desires. Like the photograph of the ocean waves on my wall in my office. For me, the beach has immense symbology. It represents the waterfront home I plan to own one day. It also represents tranquility as one of my favorite pastimes is to read a book with soothing crashing waves as a rhythmic backdrop. Modern bike racks in your mudroom to display your bikes and remind you to ride daily.
This year has been incredible, even with the backdrop we've all experienced. I've had the great fortune to nurture my passion for personal growth with interior design in what I call Intentional Design with the three full home interior projects I've worked on - my own new build, dream real estate clients where we transformed their 80's Dripping home into an oasis and dear friends in California who gave me the honor of redesigning their beautiful Santa Cruz home. Enjoy some inspiration for your own home below!
The Cayucos Soft Waves print by Minted inspires me daily to move towards that beachfront property I will one day own while lounging on an outdoor chaise reading a juicy novel or my latest personal development book.
Know Your Place
Pay homage to where you're at. This faux deer head pays tribute to the place that has my heart. On morning walks in my neighborhood, we get the joy of watching families of deer cross the street. Austin Texas - I love you!
On a recent interview I had with MJ Coyle, the designer for the HGTV show Good Bones, he shared some of his ritualistic products from their company District Co that can remind us to pause as we enter our home sanctuary. Adore these sacred wooden bowls.
Surround Yourself with meaning
This year my husband and I celebrated our 17 year anniversary. We are slowly filling every inch of our home with objects that inspire and lift us up. I found this amazing company The Night Sky, that makes a print of the stars from wherever you were on a special evening. I chose the night we met and our wedding night.
I could not be more floored by Natasha’s contribution to helping me create our beautiful home. She asked questions that got to the heart of what’s important to us. She ultimately has transformed our home into an upscale space filled with our personalities. I feel so “at home” and now relish sitting in each room to appreciate its reflection of our style.
Still looking for that perfect home? Let me help you find an almost perfect pad that we turn into your DREAM home on every level.

Work With Natasha
For Natasha, residential real estate is more than just finding a house to live in, it’s about building a lifestyle in the right home and community for oneself and family.
