At Curio Collective we believe humans are highly affected by the environment. We can feel and understand the energy of any place we visit and incorporate that aura into the spaces in which we live. We create connections and relationships with our spaces and homes; and in turn, these spaces produce emotional responses.
With careful thought to design, we have the ability to spark feelings of joy or even curiosity. We may invite love and warmth, provide a space of serenity, and offer comfort from the daily stresses of life. We offer inspired decor pieces that help you create the space where you can be filled with light and happiness.
Our deepest intent at Curio Collective is to co-create that space with you.
I graduated with a business marketing degree and was quickly thrown into the advertising world. I soon realized that the fast pace and high stress of that world didn’t fulfill my artistic side, and I was left feeling empty. I refocused my energy into raising my three kids whose intelligence challenges me daily. Over the years, we have moved many times, and this made me fall in love with the opportunity to recreate a home and space where my people could feel loved and happy. Even though I don’t have a degree in design, a passion for interior decorating has always been something I loved, even at a young age. My design style has evolved over the years as my experiences shaped who I am and what I treasure. I have found the importance of being mindful of the energy each piece brings into my home. I enjoy incorporating unique statement pieces that remind me of special memories or because they add a sense of interest and curiosity.
Most of us move in, set up the furniture and decor and leave it as is for years. As time goes by and we live in unchanging surroundings it feels comfortable because its home, but the energy within can start to feel stagnant. Introducing new furniture or accessories quite literally shifts the energy in a space and allows you to transform the vibe. Even the slightest alteration brings interests and breathes new life into your home.
If you find yourself in a new space, whether it’s new construction or an existing home that you just moved into and even though the walls are freshly painted and your furniture is all in place it still feels empty or unfinished, accessories are your answer. Layering in carefully selected textiles and accessories will allow you to create the energy you desire and make your home feel complete. These are the final steps in the design process — the je ne sais quoi that ties your vision together. Whether it’s a dimensional piece that adds character to a space or a decorative pillow that adds a pop of color and texture, you’ll find it here at Curio Collective. We offer hand selected finishing details that are timeless, classic, and bring good energy to any room to make it feel like home.
With time we discover who we really are, we gain wisdom through our experiences and find what really brings us happiness. Home should be an expression of who you are and what makes you happy, a place where you feel most safe to be you.
