Hello Empty Nester!

Now that your kiddos are out of the house, can you relate to any of these thoughts? 

-I’m lonely. I spent so much time being a mom, I don't feel like I have any friends now that the kids are gone. 

-My spouse and I feel like roommates more than partners after all those years of carpool, keeping kids fed, clothed and alive. Trying to figure out how to reconnect seems like so much work, and I just don't know where to start. 

-What the heck is my purpose these days, since it's no longer taking care of my kids? I used to feel like my life had meaning, now I feel a bit lost. 

- I’m proud of my grown children and enjoy watching them make their way in the world. It was tough at first, but now I’m ready to spend time on me!

- I love my new freedom and am ready to take on new hobbies, connect with friends and find my next adventure!

If you relate to any of those you aren't alone. I work with dozens of Empty Nesters who have these same feelings and I help them realize the solution to their situation is already right in front of them...in their home! 

Hi I'm April, Your Designer Bestie and I can help you create a home to support your new lifestyle. That's right, you haven't had time for an Interior Designer or a Best Friend, so I am here to be both.


April is the consummate professional. She is so easy to work with and is very creative. She really listens to what you want and helps you get to that place. Her organization skills are outstanding with no detail left undone. Emails and phone calls are always returned quickly. The absolute best part for me was that she took the stress out of our project! You can trust that April will do everything in her ability to make sure that you have a beautiful space.

– Joyce, Lutherville
