Our Story

This photo was taken on the last day of my career and the start of Simply Stated Designs.

When my husband and I got married and moved in together, we wanted to create a warm and welcoming home.  I quickly learned that choosing paint colors, flooring and cabinets made me break out in a cold sweat!  I would much rather spend time working on the details that would make the house feel like our own home.

One day I was visiting my husband at his print shop (which has been family owned and operated for over 33 years) and was inspired.  That small visit to our company shop was the beginning of what would someday become Simply Stated Designs.  We worked together to create a few pieces that had meaning and memories attached, including a canvas print with the lyrics to one of our wedding songs.  The addition of that canvas to our home created the personal touch we had been hoping to share; it made our family room feel complete.

Since we hung that first canvas, we have created many more unique pieces that bring love and life to each room of our home. Family, friends and guests often ask, “can you make me __________”.  We love helping to create pieces that bring joy and warmth to the homes of others.

In the summer of 2017, I took a leap of faith and left my long-term career in the pharmaceutical industry.  This has allowed me to focus on family, friends and passion for bringing life to living spaces – Simply Stated!

Thank you for visiting our site!  We hope you find something that is perfect for your home.
