My passion for beautiful homes began at an early age. While most teenagers were busy reading Seventeen, I was poring over shelter magazines and luxury real estate featured in Unique Homes magazine. Thank goodness now we have Zillow! After graduating from Southern Methodist University, I enjoyed a 14-year career in marketing and public relations. Today I am a full-time mom and interior design blogger. I created The Glam Pad as an outlet for my passion for design, and also to connect with other like-minded individuals.
From interiors to fashion, I am a firm believer in timeless classic style with a generous dose of English sensibility, Southern charm, Old Hollywood glamour, and Palm Beach whimsy! A Turner Classic Movies addict, I’m inspired by the elegance depicted in old movies from the 1930s through 1960s. I am passionate about historic preservation, antiques, and “old-fashioned” traditions such as needlepoint, tea, and handwritten letters. A seventh generation Texan, I reside in Dallas with my husband, son, and our rescue teacup Chihuahua… We are delighted to be back in Texas after living in Florida for eight years. 🙂 Thank you for following, and enjoy your visit to The Glam Pad!
