I am a
space cheerleader
and room whisperer. 

A little about me
(and a lot about small victories)


I’m Sarah Reid, and my truest passion—some might call it a superpower—is making spaces more beautiful and functional so the people who live in them are happier. 

I will make an admission here: I am not a traditional interior designer, but I know several good ones I can refer you to if that’s your thing. 

So what’s my thing? I see the work I do as an almost alchemical process. I listen closely, get to know you and your house really well, and then I get to work. I move things around. Style what you already own and love. Go out exploring for the soulful objects I know you’d pick for yourself if you had time to shop. I even make things sometimes, too, when I can’t find what I know would be perfect. And here’s the result:

Me + You = You, Only Better.

Whenever I start a new project, I walk in and actually don’t see any problems. I just see the potential. I think it’s because I care deeply about people and how they live, and I believe in my bones that space has a profound effect on our entire lives. 

In fact, a lot of people have told me that the work I do has changed their lives for the better. They like having friends and family over again. They feel more at ease in their home. They feel proud. Someone told me once that when they look at pictures of my work, they feel like they can breathe. That’s pretty much the best compliment I’ve ever gotten.

Here’s another admission: This process? It doesn’t feel like work to me. It feels 100% like what I was born to do. Every time I leave someone’s house, inside my head, I’m shouting, “I can’t believe I get to do this! Those people are so lovely! This so fun!”  

It’s fun, and it’s deeply meaningful. Two of my favorite things in life coming together, like, bam! I’m so lucky. 

If this process sounds like it might be fun and meaningful for you and your home and you live in L.A., I’d love to chat with you.
