Hi y'all!

Welcome to hcb interiors!  I am so happy to have you visit, truly. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee, & let's get to know each other...

My main inspiration for this blog & business?  My mom.  I mention her briefly in the "About" page, but even if I had infinite time & space to write, it still would not do her justice.  She passed away right before Christmas 2011, & we have been adjusting to our new normal ever since.  She was my best friend, my biggest cheerleader, & a positive force in my life.  I know many people who would say the exact same about her - she had the gift of making everyone she met feel special.  Mama accomplished almost all of her "bucket list" items before her mid-50s.  Isn't that incredible?  I, on the other hand, have accomplished very few things on my list.  After she passed, I realized that I wanted to be able to say that I did not let fear of failure or the unknown stop me from fulfilling my dreams.  

So, here we are. I have wanted to be involved in interior design since I was young, but, being oh so practical, decided instead that I needed to pursue a career in medicine because it would provide a steady job & a flexible schedule to be with my family.  But the heart knows what it wants, & even though I LOVED my patients, I did not love my job.  I spent hours outside of work getting lost in shelter magazines, decor blogs, & redesigning my home over & over again.  Luckily, my husband's military career required lots of moving, & I have had the opportunity to design 7 different homes in the past 10 years.  Each home had a different look & feel, but I mainly used the same items over & over again in different ways (a soldier's budget does not cover much when it comes to decor). 

Over the years, friends & neighbors have asked for my decorating & organizing advice.  I even had one lady ask me if I'd be interested in joining her home investment team based on the small glimpse she got of my house while at a garage sale!  With all of that positive encouragement, I started slowly taking on clients, mostly helping with organization or home staging.  Then, I had a sweet client bless me with the chance to be involved in her major home renovation, & things have taken off from there.  My projects have included: home renovations, styling, helping newlyweds merge their styles, decorating a 4500 sq ft home simply by reusing the owner's belongings (no $ spent!), & helping young families develop short & long-term goals for their forever homes.

I love what I do, & I love the people I get to work with.  I strongly believe that homes should be functional, and that they should reflect YOU - not the latest trend or what your dad's second cousin thinks your house should look like.  If you would like to know more about how I can help you bring out the best in your home, please contact me!

Thanks again for visiting!
