My Belief

I have always believed that your surroundings have an effect on your life.  A home that is created as your sanctuary and is pleasing to those who live there, will directly have a beautiful impact on all those who live there.  On the flip side, a home out of order or in disarray will create the same affect in the individual lives that reside there.  I have been witness to both, and trust me, this is true.

The Story Behind

In 2016, I moved to Orange County starting over and created a new life. In 2017, I decided to start my business, Grace Designs O.C., which was a dream for me that was quite simple, just to create beauty for others.  After starting my design and staging business, I started working with Coldwell Banker in Newport Beach as a real estate agent, which greatly exposed me to some of the worl most beautiful interiors!

Where I Am Now

In October of 2018, I relocated back up to Sonoma County, where I had spent the better part of my life and launched both of my businesses:  Real estate agent with Vanguard Properties (Holly Young Properties) and Grace Designs SoCo. These two businesses work beautifully together or on their own and I am excited to bridge these two passions.

I have had wonderful experiences and created some fabulous friendships in both Southern and Northern California, where I now reside.  Both places have their own distinct “flavor” and I am so fortunate to know both, which adds to my “repertoire” of ideas.  Aside from work, I continue to write through my blogs, where I can release my other creative side.  I also travel to see my daughter’s family and adorable grandkids and visit friends and so treasuring the moments.

In Closing

I truly believe that your surroundings do ABSOLUTELY have an effect on your life. A home that is created as your sanctuary and is pleasing to those who live there, will directly have a beautiful impact on their lives.  Create your home with love in mind!

Much Love,
