Hey I’m Jaime!
Have you ever been jolted awake from a nap in your dream home to your actual ‘ho-hum’ current situation? Me too! How about starting project after project to still walk in and not have it be what you’ve been dreaming of?
I’m sure you just want to move into your favorite DIY bloggers Instagram feed too right? Well I am glad we found each other because that is what I specialize in! Yes, making your current home your dream home. Oh yeah, without you having to break your piggy bank! Because it is expensive to feed your kids these days, I mean seriously now!
I’ve spent equal time picking toys up off my living room floor as I have being a designer, so when I say I get it, I get it. You want to feel refreshed and invited in, not be afraid of what’s behind door #2. Three out of my four kids are teenagers, I am terrified of what’s behind door #2.
I don’t care if you want a lot of color and to include all your grandma’s dishes into your design. Want all brand new stuff, no problem I got you! I’m just here to make sure it all works out and you don’t waste any more time or cash.
Yeah the whole money part, I’m sure you are sweating that. No worries, you’ll find my designs to fit within most budgets, and if that means we shop at a big box store together then so be it! You will get your dream space to make your home become your dream home.
So how did all this come about? I graduated from college, worked in the city, did BIG commercial jobs. Couldn’t shake a guy who kept following me around so I married him and we had a biggish family. I started meeting mommy friends who were fed up with the state of their homes, which were also their places of work…AKA domestic goddesses. They all had the same dilemma…affordable design that functioned well for their family. Which gave me a lot to think about at night as I rocked another child to sleep. It also made most play dates turn into design consultations.
Now that I’ve gone from picking up toys on the floor to size 10 men’s gym shoes and 29×34 jeans that do not belong to my husband I decided enough was enough and they could do that themselves. The youngest was so excited about me returning to work full time he exclaimed “YES! Now I can get my hair cut whenever I want!” I guess I’ll need to address the vanity issue of my 11 year old at some point.
If any of this resonates with you, then YAY! Let’s get to it! If not, I’m so sorry you won’t be sticking around to get the best design for the best price that showcases local small businesses as well as gives back to building stronger communities…it’s ok, you do you, I won’t be going anywhere if you change your mind! 🙂
**If you want to know all the boring nitty gritty stuff like the name of the college I went to, how I know how to make sure a space is ADA code compliant, how I can spec lighting like a boss, and create a punch list that will make the toughest union construction worker cry, I’d be happy to get that over to you!**
