Fun Facts: I am obsessed with listening to true crime audiobooks & podcasts. Anytime I am styling a room, getting ready or doing anything, I’m listening to true crime. If I wasn’t an interior designer, I would be a forensic scientist. I find all of that world so interesting and intriguing. When I was younger, I used to restuff my Beanie Babies with pretty beads and call it Liz Marie’s Pillows. I always said I would own a store called Liz Marie’s Pillows.
Iconic Inspiration: I would say if you took Monica Geller’s kitchen from Friends and turned it neutral, that would define my design style.
Three Things Every Home Needs: I think every home needs a cozy place to sit, a cozy place to sleep, and a cozy place to eat.
3 Must-Haves for Next Season & Beyond: Raw wood Natural fiber Brass
3 Go-To Colors for Next Season & Beyond: Creamy whites Muted greens Matte black
What’s New: White appliances are the new stainless.
Upcoming Trends She’s Scouting at Market: I’m hoping to find velvets or other new textures and a few brass pieces. I’m thinking of things that I can style on a shelf!
