During her horribly insecure teen years, Mandy fell in love with fashion, but her 5’10” curvy frame didn’t fit the typical mold. Naysayers told her the barriers to enter the fashion industry were too high (adults are the worst!), but she didn’t let that stifle her. Today, she uses The Curvy Blogger as a positive corner of the web, where she hopes to help girls all over the world find confidence in their own skin. If the photography on her blog is impressive, it’s because Mandy is also a wedding and elopement photographer. She credits her other half, Kevin, with giving her the boost in confidence she needed to ditch a steady day job in order to pursue those creative passions.

And ‘only for the weekend’ [became until] now — we ended up adopting him and now he is a beloved member of our family.”
Rose’s clients, who are active grandparents and world travelers, asked her to make the space more habitable for an adult daughter and grandchild currently residing there. In this section of the house, she was tasked with creating kids’ and guest rooms, as well as bathrooms, with an open design that would accommodate different uses and aesthetic tastes, depending on the user at any given time. One room that was designed with special care was the client’s office. Previously, things just seemed to find their way into the space for storage. Rose created an elegant home office that touched on all the functional needs, even down to adding a sleeper sofa for company. Another challenge was the six-week timeline from initial design to orders, deliveries, and installation. Within this window, Rose and her company had to clear four rooms and gut two bathrooms, then rebuild them from the bottom-up.
