Why, Hello!


The Soul of Style was created to inspire people to see, embrace, & create beauty in their lives, every day.  Life is short, it should be beautiful, even when it’s hard.  As a child, I always wanted to create beautiful spaces and decided that I was an interior designer.  After running an interior design firm for 12 years, my life changed when I experienced a health crisis.  In 2013, I had a stem cell transplant (thanks to www.bethematch.org) and that drastically changed my perspective on my work in the world.  Working in interior design, although challenging and rewarding, was no longer in alignment with who I had become.  That’s when the first idea of a blog was born.

You might be wondering what you’ll find here.  Well, The Soul of Style will provide you with inspiration to create & appreciate beauty in your life.  Just for you, I will be sharing styled occasions, interior inspirations, adventures, and ever so often, you will hear from me about resilience and grace.

The name, The Soul of Style, was born out of my intention for this blog (to inspire people) and my natural born talents (creating beauty).  I set out to create a blog that truly inspires & empowers people to create and appreciate beauty in their lives.  In short, I have style and creativity in my soul and it’s time to share it with the world. 

I truly hope you love it here!
