Welcome to a modern, and southern home.
Welcome to Modern on Monticello!
But first, let me introduce myself. My name is Donna and I am a certified interior designer. My love for interior design and home decor started way back in high school with a wonderful home economics teacher who also had a degree in interior design. She spent a semester teaching us about furniture and design – and I fell in love with it all.
Now it was the late 80’s at the time and of course the decor was a little more cheesy back then, but I found a passion – or obsession – if you ask my family and husband. However, I was not to follow this obsession as a career until much later….
For now, I’m branching out into a new world of blogging. I have spent so many hours reading some wonderful blogs that I finally decided to start one of my own. Especially now that I’m a stay at home wife and mom and finally get a chance to work on my own home.
We purchased this home in 2007 and of course I had grand plans at the time of creating a show house full of design brilliance. It is nearly 6 years later and I haven’t even made a dent in everything that needs to be done to bring this former neighborhood conversation piece into what it was really meant to be. The next few years are sure to be filled with chaos and hopefully lots of smiles and laughter along the way. Why don’t you plan to join me in the chaos – and the laughter!
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Isaish 43:18-19
