Design for your HOME • your HEART • your HEALTH

personal • virtual • design


I believe that your home, your heart and your health are all connected.  These 3 things need to be harmoniously balanced to live an authentic life.   I love unique furniture finds, living a healthy lifestyle, creating photography & exploring nature.  Finding new ways to eat healthy foods inspired my recent journey on a mostly alkaline diet.  This in turn fueled my new workout routine of rebounding & yoga.  My non-profit animal rescue (Curly Tail Pug Rescue) keeps me quite busy but can’t keep me away from my passion for design & styling work.

One primary goal  of the insta•Design Group is to provide customized home décor packages & design solutions that can be implemented quickly & by anyone.  Let me help you create an inviting space that reflects your personality & style, on a realistic budget, and with a quick timeline.  I find a creative way to use materials  whether it is old, new, found, purchased, up-cycled or recycled.

If I can also inspire people to eat in a cleaner and more purposeful way, than I will be a happy camper.  Following your heart in lifestyle choices is critical to happiness as well.  I am a New Yorker – sort of.  Being born & raised in NYC has set a fantastic creative foundation for me. One that is filled with art & culture; provided a great back drop of design experience & fine tuned my overall aesthetic.  It has shaped my sense of humor, how I think and who I am.  All of my family & best friends are there.   The catch….I hated living in NY.  

I recently moved to Austin to improve my quality of life.  The drive to live healthier & to experience life more fully, outweighed my desire to live in the big city. Never having lived outside of NY, this was definitely a big change!  This was a thought out decision and one that was very much in tune with my heart.  Therefore, my life now is more balanced & I am happier than I have ever been.  I am able to nuture my home, my heart and my health.  The positive energy shift is reflected in my interaction with people, animals, nature and especially in my creative work.

The virtual part of the design experience comes in right about now.  All of my independent design work has been done virtually.  With today’s technology, almost all business can be conducted remotely.  It is no different for a designer to do the same.  Please visit my Hunter Place project.  I saw this space in person ONLY AFTER the project was complete!
