Spirit: The first thing you notice about Monica is her spirit. It's a spirit of warmth, generosity and acceptance. It's also contagious. Simply talking to Monica will lift your spirits. Monica brings that energy to her design work as she transforms spaces into places you love being in and using - places where you feel at home.
Birch Trees. Monica tells me a story of birch trees. She knew someone who wanted a mural on his wall. Monica thought it would be a fun project and jumped right in and painted a birch tree mural. This mural transformed the space for her friend, who now says it's the best place he's ever lived.
The Letter. Sometimes you know your calling almost instinctively. Monica is one of those lucky people. She tells me of the letter she wrote when she was 12. Her teacher asked each person in the class to write a letter to their future self in 10 years and what they imagined they would be doing. Monica wrote about interior design, thinking of wooden beams and brick walls.
Her Calling: Almost by happenstance, Monica found the letter years later. She'd forgotten she'd written it. As she read the letter again, all those years later, she knew completely that she's meant to be a designer. She had been dabbling in various forms of art, but at that point refocused on interior design. Monica has a degree in Fine Art and studied Interior Design at the Academy of Arts in San Francisco.

Transforming Space: Monica's talents extend beyond closets and small spaces. Monica also loves to stage homes. She can walk into a room and instinctively know how to rearrange and add the right colors to make the room visually appealing to anyone. She says she's mostly able to work with what's already there in the space, while gently sprinkling the space with a new and beautiful spirit. She enjoys pulling it all together.

Monica's Magic: It's obvious to me how this philosophy permeates into Monica's design work. Monica transforms spaces by working with what's already there - by giving the beauty within room to shine. Sometimes, Monica says, her clients rediscover their homes after she's done her work. Perhaps they decide to stay put and love where they live now. That's Monica's magic.
