Lifestyle Designers

We believe Home is where you go on your worst day, want to go on your best day, and love to go to any day. Home opens its doors with Grace and Peace. Home should be a place built on trust. Home should be filled with JOY and KINDNESS and GOODNESS. Home sounds like LOVE, Home sounds like GOD.
— Nick Gold

BIO - Marissa Watts

Growing up in California, Marissa is inspired by the beach and drawn to colors and a relaxed home environment. Marissa minored in Interior Design in college and ended up going the teacher route for a few years before having kids and becoming a stay at home mom. Design has always been a huge part of her life and passion. Since she can remember, she recalls staging and rearranging furniture in her bedroom constantly as a small girl and has continued to do so her whole life. With friends and family continually asking her decorating advice and help she has decided to make this hobby into a business. She is especially inspired by incorporating faith and family values into a home and for a home to really reflect your family passions. When Marissa met Cindy she knew from the get go that this was a friendship that was easy and natural. It was by faith that we met and now have become business partners who share a passion for design.
