I think about our home a lot. Not just because I am in it all the time, but because I love it and want other people to love their homes, too. Textiles are something that are always on my mind. They make a space cozy, adding texture and warmth. If I am in a thrift store, it is the first section I browse. When I am not working on Brass Tacks Home, you can find me in the kitchen cooking up a big pot of something, or baking some yummy treats with our two young daughters. Or scouring unusual places to find inspiring materials for our home, or yours. I am a bit obsessed with organization and function, always pitching new ways to adapt our home to our life. Jesse patiently listens, and either helps build on my ideas or filters them. A lot of my life is spent taking care of people and making them feel welcome, and I am grateful for that privilege.
I have been working in the trades since college age. Many people get their start as a roofer or laborer, but I started as a painter, working for a designer. Through those experiences, and schooling, I learned how composition, color and pattern all play a part in intelligent design. I went on to begin renovating homes, which satisfied my need to work with my hands. Woodworking became one of my biggest passions. I love the materials and the tools; they are timeless traditions that inspire me. I spend a lot of my life dusty. I have given up on separating work clothes from non-work clothes. I cannot stay away from it! Lindsey is still trying to figure out how to deal with that part. When I am not working on Brass Tacks Home, you will find me hanging out with my family, listening to podcasts or working on my own home.
