Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there?
My home is in a quiet leafy area of Southeast Portland, Oregon. I've been here in this house for almost 2 years.
What is your favorite decorating style?
My home has to be light and airy through the day yet homely and cozy once the sun goes down so the decor throughout mixes the traditional with the contemporary and then sprinkles a little handmade on top. I love to use a mixture of neutral tones then pile on plenty of texture to keep things interesting. Using accessories to add a pop of color that can be switched up throughout the year also keeps my decor looking fresh and inviting.
Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?
Iím heavily inspired by my native Pacific Northwest - itís so light, lush and green yet those rainy days mean a cozy home is essential. Iím also a huge fan of Scandinavian design and I think that clean, minimalist aesthetic seeps into every one of my decor decisions.
In 5 words or less, your home is?
Light, fresh, inviting, homely, beautiful
What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at?
Iím never very far from West Elm. I just love to look there for items that I can customize with one of my own designs. They offer lots of ranges of plain glass bottles, cookware, ceramics, frames etc - all of which are great for adding your own stamp. I also like to vintage and found pieces. A few things in my house were actually picked up off the side of the road. Of course I customized them.

Include something handmade in every room of your house. It instantly transforms your house into a home.
Your favorite paint color, name and brand:
Annie Sloan paints in any color! Her products are so easy to use and have given me the confidence to really play with my decor. For my wall paint I love Sherwin Williams and pick colors like Mink, Palisades and Peppercorn.
What are your favorite things to collect right now?
Iím utterly in love with milk glass and especially in the bubble pattern. That calming, milky, opaque color is just beautiful and the dotted texture adds a feminine touch.
What is your favorite room in your house, and why?
I love my living room. Itís one of the few places in my house that is purely for relaxation and time out. I donít use it for work like I do every other room in my house (my dining room and kitchen are often used for photo shoots), so itís my space in which to unwind, put my feet up and dive into a good book. The couch, which I picked up on Craigslist and had re-covered in linen, is the comfiest couch I've ever sat on and with a couple of chunky knit blankets on top I can easily while away an entire afternoon in that room.
Your next project is:
Well I only just finished my kitchen which was a huge task because almost the entire kitchen range from the utensil containers to the wall plates, the glassware to the kitchen aid and even the refrigerator were given a make-over using a design of mine on LiaGriffith.com. It was quite a project. Next up is a light and spacious garden studio that will be used for my photography!
