Meet Alicia

Welcome friend! My name is Alicia and I’m glad you’re here.

First and foremost, I’m a wife to a fantastic husband and cook, Paul, and a mama to two super active little boys, Ethan and Eli, and to Reesie Rose, our chocolate golden doodle.

I’m also a practicing attorney with a business degree who is constantly told by friends, family, and neighbors that I missed my calling as an interior and event designer. I suppose it makes sense, I am a 3-way enneagram tie, after all.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the law and am a super analytical thinker. But I feel the most like myself now when I get to be creative.

I try to design a beautiful life and space that works for me so I can be my best self for the ones I love. That’s NOT to say I have it all figured out. I’m a professional who works full time and then some with two growing boys I’m trying to nurture and raise into good humans, a husband, friends, and extended family to whom I’d like to stay connected, a faith I need to explore and grow as my life changes, and passions and needs of my own . . . just like every mama I’ve met.

I decided to start a creative outlet where I share what I’ve learned along the way, and even the things I’m still figuring out, about designing my life and home in the hopes that I can inspire YOU in the design of YOURS. And luckily, my hilarious and talented hubby and adorable (if I do say so myself) boys are along for the ride.

So…

  • Would YOU like to learn how to make your home a cohesive and comfortable reflection of you?
  • Do you want a one stop shop for your event ideas, from decorations, recipes, gifts, and more?
  • Would you like step-by-step directions for DIYs that will transform your space?
  • Do you have a desire to design YOUR life in a way that is fulfilling, efficient, fun, and beautiful?

If yes, please settle in, grab some coffee or wine (or a drink from my cocktail recipe list), and explore the site. Thanks for coming! I’m so glad you’re here!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Answers to questions I’ve received on my social media and email contact forms.

What is your favorite project to date?

That’s a really tough one…almost like picking my favorite child. I was able to narrow down to my top 6 favorite projects from our first 3 years in our current home, but if I had to pick just one…it would be one of those 6. Haha, I can’t decide. Then again, I have some coming up that will probably become my favorite soon.

Where else can I find you?

You can find me @designofyourlife across Pinterest, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook. I would LOVE IT if you would follow me on the social media platforms.

Can you come design and/or organize my house?

Why yes, yes I can. I have quite a few spaces in my portfolio, including commercial spaces. I am also working on e-design packages ranging from mood boards and design tips specific to your space to a full design plan with sources and DIY instructions (if you’re into that kind of thing). While I’m getting that up and running, please feel free to email me with any inquiries.

How long did it take you to write your 101 in 1001 list?

20 minutes…and I could’ve kept going. No joke. It’s one of my favorite exercises because I get to put all of my ideas down on paper with a deadline attached.

XOXO Alicia
