Desiree blogs and designs websites at A Place To Nest. She is passionate about creating online dream homes for her clients with the warmth and character that they would want in their own homes. When she is not designing, she is often seen knitting or hanging out with her best guy (AKA her hubby) and a crazy little firecracker of an almost 3 year old boy, usually with her camera in hand 🙂
