We are so excited you have found our website and can share in our passion.  We are a mom and daughter duo who are DIY junkies. We love creating unique items for our homes that make it feel warm and comfortable, reflecting our own personalities, but above all, we love working together!   We are constantly bouncing ideas off each other and work together on all of our projects. We are often asked, “how do you come up with these ideas?” For many years we have felt as though the ideas have “just come to us”.  We’re both very visual thinkers and ideas are constantly coming into our minds for new projects.   Over the years we have realized that these ideas have come to us as gifts of the Spirit.  As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we feel blessed to be able to share our talents with you. Service in the home and community is a large part of our beliefs.  Not only do we work as Interior Designers, but we also serve in our local congregation.  We want to share our ideas and our love for design with you through step by step instructions.

We love to decorate our homes, refinish furniture and reimagine unique pieces. We paint, sew, work with wood and use just about anything we can get our hands on.  We can pretty much tackle anything…except cake decorating!  Ha Ha!  We are definitely not perfect nor claim to be, but we would love to share what we have learned through our mistakes. Half of the fun we have is in the hunt for unique items, we love frequenting vintage shops, antique markets, thrift stores, and yard sales.  We hope to inspire you to transform your home into a beautiful haven where you will feel happy, relaxed and at peace.We feel that order and organization are important elements in every home.  Why go to the expense and effort of making your home “cute” if it’s filled with clutter?  You will find as you follow along, we will share tips and strategies to help your home run more smoothly and become a place of order and refuge.

Here at Sunny Side Design, we like to crank up the tunes when we work together.  We love music from the 40’s and 50’s, and love the crooners.  Some of our favorites are Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Armstrong.  We especially love the song “Sunny Side of the Street,”  which became the inspiration for our business name and slogan.  It seemed perfect for us.  We believe that every home should feel sunny and happy, and be a place where you want to be.  As you follow us we hope to help you in “Bringing Your Home To The Sunny Side Of The Street!”
