Did someone say "

Throw pillow"?



You long for a calm and beautiful home. You want to come home to a space that feels relaxing and inspiring. But right now your home is causing you STRESS!

Maybe because:

  • You feel weighed down by too much STUFF (omg, it's everywhere!!!)

or maybe,

  • You feel like your home is an empty shell with no personality (ugh, it's so boring! How do I choose colours and art??)

or maybe,

  • You are going through a major life change (newlyweds, new baby on the way, selling your home, empty nest, downsizing!) and you need to make some changes in your home, but you don't know where to start!

You know it's possible to solve your problem and lift this weight from your shoulders, but you just aren't sure how to make it happen. 

That's where I can help!

Why "Lighter Side Interiors"?

When it came time to name my company and my blog, I settled on the name because I love the different levels of meaning that the word Lighter holds. It can mean lighter in terms of weight, in terms of brightness, or in terms of emotion. Sometimes only one aspect will apply to a space, but many times it can be all three! Imagine what your home could look and feel like if we bring it to the Lighter Side!
