PS: Where did your love for decorating emerge?
JB: Ever since I was a child, I was very art and design oriented. I loved to paint, sew, and collage. After studying art in college, I moved to Italy and began to think about design as a way to make a living using my creative talents. I opened a small boutique for vintage and designer clothing but found that after a few years, I was most excited about finding vintage objects and furniture for the shop. It was then that I realized my passion for decor and began working on home decor projects.
