I enjoy organizing, space planning, creative problem solving, decorating, and self expression in the form of interior design! I love to host my friends and family and take great pride in creating a chic and cozy home for meals, holidays, game nights, parties, etc. I enjoy creating spaces for life to be lived in.
At 15 years old I drafted up my first resume. Many years later I stumbled upon a copy of that very resume. "Short Girl, Tall Ambitions" was what I titled it with. Reading that back all this time later, I had two thoughts:
The dreamer behind the designer
I HAVE DREAMT OF A LIFE OF WORKING HARD FOR MYSELF, DOING SOMETHING I AM GENUINELY PASSIONATE ABOUT. THUS, UNCOMMON ROSE DESIGNS WAS BORN. I AM SO EXCITED TO POUR MY AMBITIONS INTO HELPING OTHERS CREATE BEAUTIFUL HOMES. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT OUR ENVIRONMENTS PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN OUR ATTITUDE TOWARDS LIFE. IT IS MY DREAM TO HELP CLIENTS ENHANCE THEIR LIVES THROUGH THEIR HOMES. AS THIS BUSINESS CONTINUES TO GROW, MY DREAMS CONTINUE TO COME TRUE.
1. BRILLIANT, OBVIOUSLY.
2: A DECADE AND A HALF LATER, THAT STILL RINGS TRUE TO WHO I AM TODAY. I AM STILL 5'1", AND STILL A SELF-MOTIVATED GO-GETTER.
As a small business owner myself, it is my mission to support other small businesses at every possible turn. Uncommon Rose Designs partners with like-minded small businesses to complete all contractor work (remodeling, custom cabinetry, etc.) Additionally, I aim to "shop small" as much as a project budget will allow by shopping locally owned home decor and furnishing stores and commissioning work from Etsy stores! It has always been my experience that small businesses provide superior quality work and customer service.
Supporting small business owners is not the only benefit of shopping small. A true pillar of Uncommon Rose Designs is creating UNIQUE home designs! The name Uncommon Rose was born from the thought of creating something uncommonly beautiful. Stores like World Market, West Elm, Crate & Barrel - they are my weakness. I LOVE their decor selection. However, so does everyone else. It's common to visit a friends' home and realize you have the same throw pillows, the same decorative accents, even the same wall art! Shopping small gives the opportunity to find unique diamonds in the rough. Handmade. Custom. Limited Edition. These are going to be the pieces in your home that you (and your guests) love the most.
