Owner, Principal Designer

Moving to Utah 11 years ago from Alabama, Hope found a sense of inner peace traveling from the coast to the mountains. She continues to travel with her family and picks up inspiration along the way. Drawing deep inspiration from the natural world, Hope gazes at how nature effortlessly blends materials, patterns, textures, and patinas. This harmony guides her in creating spaces that feel both grounded and organic. Embracing a sleek and authentic approach, she discovers beauty in the unexpected and comfort in imperfections. For her, a home should genuinely mirror its occupants, a haven where their stories evolve in harmony with the surroundings.

Through close collaboration with builders and contractors, Hope appreciates the opportunity to work alongside field experts, gaining insights into their trades along the way. This acquired knowledge becomes a valuable asset that she carries forward from project to project. She is currently working toward getting a General Contractors License.
