About: Stone Wood Design was a dream of mine that began more than 20 years ago when I wanted to do something with my life that afforded me time to raise my two small children and also financially help support my family. Moreover, I wanted to do something with the appreciation for beautiful places and spaces my mother had shared with me growing up, so I went back to school and became an interior designer. Today, 20 years, and at least 600 jobs later, I couldn’t be happier. From new construction projects to complete home overhauls, at Stone Wood Design we love to research and find the right piece, furnishing or cabinet to ensure that each project communicates a sense of well being and joy to all those who enter the space.

About: I grew up on the mean streets of East Sacramento. Obsessed with design from a young age, I was constantly redoing my bedroom using antiques and the JC Penney catalog. I moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA for undergraduate and graduate school (and for the weather.) I have a degree in Interior Architecture.
I would describe my design aesthetic as Modern California Eclectic and I have never met a brass object I didn’t love. I love bright and airy spaces that reflect the homeowners. My design philosophy is to love the space you live in and to not take yourself too seriously. I currently live in the Wilhaggin area with my husband Matt, and my sons Reid & Remy. My home is proof that you can still have a beautiful home that you enjoy while having young kids. Performance fabrics are your friends
