It All Began When I Decided I Wanted "MORE."


For years I had dreamed of being my own boss, running my own "empire" so to speak. It took a shift in my mindset in 2018 to make that dream a reality.

I was in pursuit to start my own business because I wanted MORE... Freedom to create that life I always dreamed of, in any which way I chose. So I took the dive into creating Furlong Design Studio and haven't looked back.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Rearranging my shop way too much Going to the casino to play bingo Drinking my share of White Claws Binge watching recorded TV shows Making silly TikToks

I'm GUILTY OF:

My own Boss, Wife, Mom and Grandmother, Creative, Crafty, Driven

I am a:

I love a good challenge... I dive into researching styles, products, themes - you name it! Give me direction and I will run with it and bring some ideas to the table and/or figure out ways to make said "it" happen. 

When I come up with an idea for my home or shop, I figure it a way to make it happen. Typically on a small budget - thankfully my husband and I are DIYer's at heart and can do most of our projects ourselves. I try to think of creative ways to get a desired look with materials or refurbishing items we already have. And we don't mess around - if we are gonna do it, let's get it done! I get this comment all the time "so what have you done new this time?"

My superpower is helping people
MAKE-IT-HAPPEN. I'm the idea girl, the can you make this girl, the can you help me figure this out go-to girl.

I didn’t always have a business that features a variety of custom offerings... I literally started my business doing the very same thing I was doing at my full time job - Interior Design. And my business has been evolving ever since. Striving to grow, expand what I offer, learning new skills along the way.

Shopping Online! There is nothing better than jumping online and ordering anything you need without ever having to leave home.

A Good Book. I'm that girl that loves to read outside - while soaking up some sun. I think I was meant to live down south, by a beach or pool. 

My Favorite Things

Baking. Primarily in the colder months. Fan favorites are my banana bars or pumpkin bars

Ice cream. Strawberry Cheesecake from Schwann's - so yummy!

my guilty pleasure

Shiplap! I have it all over my home and in the office. Its my go to DIY wall covering vs sheetrock when renovating.
