My name is Laurie Jones. I am married to Drew Jones and I have a 10 year old daughter named Sloan. I was a paralegal for close to 15 years and it finally got to the point where it was either go to law school to get my law degree or go back to school and study interior design. This time, I followed my heart and not my head and I am currently in my 2nd year at IUPUI getting a degree in engineering and technology, which is really just a fancy way of saying interior design.
Looking back I should’ve made the choice 20 years ago. As a little girl I would actually get excited when I came home from school to see that my mom had re-arranged the living room furniture. I spent hours in my own room drawing out sketches of my room and my future house. I would get yelled at for taking my mom’s Home magazine from her room and not putting it back where it belonged. While most kids hung pictures of Andy Gibb (yes I’m that old) on the wall I hung photos of rooms torn from my mom’s decorating magazines. I would look through the JcPenney’s catalog at the draperies and tell my mom about the perfect gold curtain for the living room!
I have lived in more houses then I care to admit to and its usually time to move when I have finished decorating it. I have a habit of selling everything and starting over again and my taste seems to change quite a bit. For the first time in my life I feel like things are falling into place.
I hope you enjoy my blog on my interior design studies and my home remodeling projects and who knows maybe some clients projects! I will warn you when I get stressed I use humor and sarcasm to get through it so be prepared for anything.
