“I am going to make everything around me beautiful—that will be my life.” — Elsie de Wolfe
My Mission as a Stylist
Unearthing beauty—and truly celebrating it—is my passion. The design and styling work I offer ranges from creative direction for photo shoots and events to interior design, event design, editorial work and more. But my creative mantra remains the same: I will make everything around me beautiful.
Whether it’s your living room, your line of amazing handmade products or your dinner table, there is so much potential for beauty. I work with a wide range of clients: large corporations, small business owners and fellow creatives, musicians, magazine editors, brides. Their aesthetics and personalities may vary, but their needs are similar.
My clients want someone who can see straight to the core of what makes them tick—the one, unique story they have to share—and tell that story visually. With ingenuity and vision, but above all, with passion.
It’s my mission to tell your story with a visual impact so striking and so beautiful, it lasts. It should be one that your audience yearns to experience again long after they’ve left the room or turned the page. Creating that visual story is my life’s work. And telling your specific story is my greatest privilege.
What Sets My Styling Work Apart?
I’m a styling chameleon. Whether your desired look is clean and modern or layered and rustic, I’ve got lots of looks in my stylist’s bag of tricks. One-trick ponies and ruts aren’t my thing. Each set I style will be different than the last, which isn’t to say I don't have a signature style. I simply like to ensure that my work is about you. And you are unique.
I adore the beauty of simplicity. My creative direction for the clients and slew of fellow creatives with whom I work typically includes three words: simple, light, airy. Why? Because I believe that the most beautiful, moving scenes are comprised of simple objects of beauty. I adore the warm hue of worn wood. The texture of linen crumpled just so.
I think the sign of a mature, seasoned designer is that she knows the sweet spot in her styling work—the one where nothing should be added nor taken away. And the thousands of hours I’ve logged on set and in the studio have helped me arrive at this point—the one in which I’m confident that I won’t simply nail the look you’re going for, but I’ll also help you take your creative vision to a place that is more lovely and more impactful than you ever imagined.
I’m the daughter of a wood-working entrepreneur and a make-do-and-mend mother. I grew up in a town of less than 2,000 in a home built in the early 1800s. After roaming the country, living a life where everything I owned fit in my car and landing in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Portland, Oregon, I’ve settled in Nashville with my husband and our three mischievous dogs.
I am obsessed with well-built, handcrafted goods. If I can sew it, bake it or craft it, I won’t buy it—unless it’s made by someone with the kind of skill and talent that makes my heart skip a beat. I appreciate those who are amazing at their craft and chase it down with every ounce of blood, sweat and passion they have inside them. I gravitate to these people—to the florists, the designers, the furniture makers and the bookbinders—because I feel that work ethic and passion is infectious.
I am also the owner of Stockroom Vintage, a boutique vintage event rental company and prop house with locations in both Nashville and Memphis.
