Earlier this month I shared the big news that I bought my first home! Working on making my house a home has been, well, a struggle. That’s why I’m so excited to be working with Levity of Levity Interiors to help create the office of my dreams.
My decision to buy a home of my own has been one in the making for years– 10 to be exact.
Moving after graduation from my hometown of Boston to Jacksonville was not the plan. I figured I had a year or two before moving out of state. But circumstances outside of my control brought me to Florida.
New city, new job, new friends. It was a lot of new and I had a lot on my plate that made the idea of venturing out on my own overwhelming and scary. And over the next decade I would start the process of getting my own place multiple times without it coming to fruition. I ended up psyching myself out, crippled by fear and resorted to just making it work with what I had.
In that time I started Musings of a Curvy Lady as a hobby that has turned into a part-time job that I adore.
I love creating content to share on my platforms but the idea of creating over time felt more like a chore than something I would get excited about. My feelings had a lot to do with not having a proper space of my own that I could work and grow in.
After losing my studio rental space and having to haul all of my equipment solo into my mom’s garage I made the decision right then and there; enough was enough.
At that moment I decided that I was going to buy a house so not only I would have my own living space but a creative work space that was my own. No need to haul or store equipment on someone else’s property.
I knew once I got my house the first room that I wanted to fully furnish would be my home office.
This is where I would essentially create the career of my dreams and I needed the space to reflect that. I wanted it to be beautiful and chic but to be honest I was so overwhelmed by the entire process I didn’t know where to begin.
I’m so fortunate to have discovered Levity Interiors via Instagram. Levity is a local design consultant here in Jacksonville and soon after following one another on the ‘gram I fell in love with her gumption and design work. Her and her fiancé Clayton are renovating their second home and it’s amazing to watch the transformation.
One day I decided to email Levity and ask if she would be interested in helping me design a room in my new home.
A whole week went by. I was bummed but could understand why. We’re all just so busy.
But I decided to send her a DM just to follow up on the initial email and after just a few moments later, Levity wrote back with an astounding yes! She was so excited to want to collaborate and I was so surprised she said yes.
We immediately got to work starting with answering a design questionnaire and pulling ideas onto a Pinterest board. Levity drafted a design board and after one revision we had our final draft ready to implement.
I can’t believe this is my office! You can watch my initial reaction to seeing it on my YouTube Channel.

I am just over the moon with the final result. It’s beautiful, chic, romantic, feminine and perfectly cozy.
This office means so much more than just a work space. This is where I’m going to make my dreams a reality. I’m so thankful to Levity for taking the thoughts runnings around in my head and helping me create this perfect creative space.
