I have been creating all my life. I can't remember a time when I didn't have a project in my mind to complete. I feel as if I've had many lives. My first was being an Occupational Therapist working with disabled children. After that I had my own children and was blessed to be able to stay home with them as they grew. During this time, I was a mosaic artist for 5 years and then a costume designer for theater productions. In 2010, I found a new love, repurposing vintage elements such as furniture, fabrics and antique salvage pieces, into home goods with new purpose and value. Repurposed, recycle, refinish. Papillon Home has evolved as my skills and vision have developed. In May 2014, I opened a shop in Boca Raton, Florida. Today my store concept has evolved into a retail brick and mortar storefront, a website, and my interior design services which includes home consultations. I work daily on my painted furniture and make custom furniture pieces and home accessories for my clients. My design style features modern farmhouse, industrial and architectural elements. I like to repurpose the items you have in your home through our furniture painting and upholstery services. You name it we can create it.
I hope you value, as I do, all things battered, cracked, rusted and worn. Please browse my shop frequently, as I post new items every few days. Thanks for your interest in my work. I wake up each day with a new project on my mind and the knowledge that I am blessed each day to do what I do.
