I am thrilled to announce my participation in the debut Make it Home Show House with Invitation Homes! I am joining a team of Atlanta-based design influencers and lead designer Emily Henderson to transform one of Invitation Homes’ single-family homes for lease in the Atlanta area. We’ll be sharing a design forecast and bringing our tips and trends to life in each room (and backyard) of the house, and leading workshops for local residents to experience our design insights in-person! With more U.S. households renting now than at any point in the last 50 years, I’m excited to share my tips for making a leased house a home. Meet the whole team of designers below and mark your calendars for my mood board workshop on May 15th!

Invitation Homes is the premier home leasing company in 17 markets across the U.S. with more than 80,000 high-quality, professionally maintained homes with convenient proximity to jobs and good schools. The shophouse will highlight lease-friendly, affordable design and decor tips to help make any house a home!
