This dog-mommy-interior-designer extraordinaire takes us behind the scenes of a Day in her Life! 

7 am – Wake up, walk Fig, Grab a coffee, Get ready, quick protein shake breakfast.

8:30 am – Work begins! Mornings are usually going over details, planning/designing, with Fig sharing his input on my design! I like to get the focused work out of the way in the morning, as afternoons get quite hectic.

12 pm – Lunch, This was a delicious working lunch at Cosme, ending with their famous Corn Husk Dessert + a Cortado, to keep me on my toes.

1:30 pm – Scheming. I save the relaxing, more interesting work for afternoons.
