Have you ever felt like there is something really special that brings you joy that you simply don't do enough of? I'm not sure what that might be for you, but for me, it's feeding my passion for interior design and the arts (all of them - visual, performing, culinary...). With a full time career in financial services, a bustling family, a demanding schedule (and the list goes on), it's tough to find time for things that you love! But, I've committed to MORE. More inspiration...more hands on expression of my own creativity...and more beauty in my world. As I explore and expand my own space and fill it with awe-inspiring design, experiences, and ideas, I look forward to using this lifestyle and design blog to share them with you. Through interior design projects like my newest conquest, a vacation rental in Wintergreen, VA, to assisting my husband on his latest house flip, there is no shortage of design challenges and inspiration in our lives.

I am a Southern girl in DC (because DC is most certainly NOT the South). I am a devoted wife and mother to 2 amazing kids who just happen to be 18 years apart. I am a hobby painter and potter with a deep love of interior design and real estate. My personal design style is modern mountain - a little bit rustic with a whole lot of sophistication. I am happiest watching the sunrise on the deck in the mountains wrapped in a blanket reflecting on how incredibly amazing it is to be alive.

My hope is that you will join me on this journey to add MORE beauty and creativity to life in a way that feeds your soul and stirs your passion.

Meet Quanda Monique
