i can’t get montecito out of my mind. the recent mudslides have been so destructive and immense. i’m  thinking about this beautiful place and praying it will be restored and come back and be better than ever. 

i have such wonderful memories of montecito. i’ve been blessed to spend a lot of time there and work on some of the most beautiful homes there as well. as far as i know most of all the properties we have worked on are safe. so thankful, especially grateful for the families that live in these homes. 

here’s a look at one of my favorite homes i have decorated in montecito. the people that live there are so special and wonderful. the home was featured in veranda a few years ago. thankful for these memories.
