Hi, I’m Mary Ann. I’ve waffled back and forth about started a design blog for many years. I’m not a designer. I don’t even pretend to have great design sensibility. But, I do know what I like. I’m a creative director at a marketing company during the day. In my previous careers I’ve been a television producer and a freelance newspaper reporter. Most importantly, I’m a wife and mother to two great children (tweens actually)!
I love getting to peek inside the homes of others—both celebrities and everyday people. When I have time, I watch design television while browsing Pinterest, design blogs and sites that allow me to rearrange my rooms digitally. At the conception of this blog, we’ve lived in our house for seven years and I’m definitely experiencing the seven-year-itch. This is the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. Let me repeat that—this is the longest I’ve lived in one place. While I spent my entire childhood in metropolitan Detroit, we moved often. My parents were also restless homeowners. I don’t want to move again, but I love to move things around. I am content at home, but I would love to knock down some walls, move my kitchen, build a screened in porch, and more!
