colorful comments is a lifestyle & design blog focused on sharing trends, products and tips from professionals inside the world of design & fashion, travel & food!




Originally from the Chicago area I have a deep passion for architecture and art history. I knew from the age of 5 that I wanted to have a career within the Architectural and Design Industry. Now "20 something" years later, I am proud to say I graduated with my degree in Business and Design. I was determined, between a difficult divorce and raising a child as a single Mom, I earned my degree and was able to find work within the Design Industry! I'm so incredibly grateful for the experiences I've had so far and I'm looking forward to see where the next few chapters of my story take us! I've had the opportunity to connect with some pretty amazing people and I can't wait to meet a few more. I have worked in the Design Industry for 6 years now and have experience in high-end residential design, kitchen & bath remodels and marketing and can't wait to see where this journey takes me next.
