“My work and my site are dedicated to helping women enjoy their homes and lifestyles by adding beauty to their everyday world.”

HI,

I’M CARMEN.

An interior designer, educator, blogger and founder of Design & Lifestyle Tours to Italy and I have a desire to help as many women as I can to improve their homes and lifestyles through my school, services and tours. I’m here to teach you and show you the way to a better home environment or a lifestyle that involves a little more style and just maybe….a little travel.

HOME INTERIORS DESIGNED FOR YOU?

I KNOW YOU WANT TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL HOME SPACES BUT SOMETIMES WE NEED A HELPING HAND….IT CAN BE CONFUSING.

I am going to be your fairy godmother of home design, the wand-waver if you will when it comes to helping you transform your current home spaces. Sure, I don’t have a wand but let’s not let that get in the way! Let’s get going on creating a plan for your renovation, your home living spaces or workspaces and give them the style and pizzazz you’ve been waiting for.
