I had the privilege of styling a home feature for the June issue of Country Living Magazine. The Ojai, California home of Greg and Kelley Motschenbacher has been lovingly updated and restored since the couple purchased it in 2008. It's inspiring to see how they enhanced the charm of their 1950's ranch home and property with true DIY spirit...and a lot of elbow grease.

For the styling, I wanted to maintain the simple, fresh-country appeal of their home, and let the rooms and decor speak for themselves. It was such a fun project for me to work on, since it included not only styling the entire home, but also the gardens, porches, and patios as well.

Here's a few photos from the story, which were taken by the fabulous, Victoria Pearson. My assistant on this shoot was Pam Garrison, who helped me with the beautiful florals, and all those pesky behind-the-scenes details and errands.
