Designing beautiful spaces is where Danielle's passion lies. After working for Pottery Barn for eight years as an Assistant Design Manager, she has learned that to her, design is subjective. Your home or space should be a place you love to be - and that's what she strives for in her work.

Her design style might be called Refined Rustic; it incorporates both modern and rustic elements to create a look that is timeless and inviting. When she's not helping friends and family with their decorating projects, Danielle enjoys spending time with her beautiful family.
