Home is where the wifi connects automatically

I’m so excited to share a little bit of my life behind the scenes with you today.  Although we now have an Effie’s Paper studio space, I still prefer to work from home.  Why? Well, aside from the convenience of my gym and coffee shop being just steps away, I really love being in our apartment.  Almost 10 years ago now, my husband and I decorated our apartment; I still love it just as much now as I did then. And thanks to the awesome photography skills of Melanie Rieders, and the folks at Apartment Therapy, you can take a little tour of our humble abode – just click here.
Now, I must confess that my husband is the truth aesthete in our family and anyone who spends any time with us gleans that right away!  So trust me when I say, I was misquoted a few times in the article.  Nevertheless, it was a super fun shoot.  How did this all come about?  Well, I’ve met so many amazing creatives along this entrepreneurial journey; many of whom have been so kind an generous.  One of these kind souls is interior decorator, Angela Belt.  I’ve known Angela online for a few years now, but we met in person last Fall when we spoke on a panel together in Charleston, South Carolina.  Angela and I worked remotely together on her sister’s book project a few years back, Remix, so she knew what our apartment looked like.  Angela is dedicated to the importance of positive Black imagery in interior design and she recommended us to Apartment Therapy (she’s kind of a big deal).
