Motivational Monday-Friendly Decorating


Last month I told you about Tobi Fairley and the wonderful group of women I have had the opportunity to spend with while in her Mastermind Group for the past two years. I wanted to share with you some newer design friends I have had the opportunity to spend this year with. I can’t tell you how important it is to have a support system in your life. With family, work, or any interest/cause you support, there is nothing like it.

Jennifer Reynolds – Jennifer’s warm and caring personality shows in her beautiful traditional designs. Her customized signature look combines timeless comfort and a memorable style. Jennifer is a very well sought after designer in the Atlanta area and was featured in Atlanta Homes!
