Welcome to my blog!


Gina Pardoe Designs is my newly branded business name. I’m so excited to share my experiences with you, both the good and bad, so we can all learn something along the way.

Entering the world of blogging is scary indeed! I’ve learned so much by following a few of my favorite decorators and hope that I will become one of yours! I have such an urge to educate readers and share the insights that I’ve gained through every project. I’ve constantly got ideas bouncing around in my head, it’s time to get them down “on paper” and purge my brain. The goal is simply to give you, the reader, some inspiration to create and live in a home you love. 

Since deciding to gingerly embark on a decorating career after being a stay at home mom for 28 years, I’ve been busy, to say the least. I dove in head first in 2012, earning certification in Interior Redesign and Home Staging following a year long course. I became a True Color Expert in 2014, attended webinars and workshops in furniture placement, exterior finishes, home staging, photography, videography for social media, and business strategies. My husband and I also purchased a farm in 2014, completely renovated the mid-1800’s barn and farmhouse, and last year built my dream home in the woods. 

I invested in a business coach last year, in hopes of streamlining all of the duties that go along with being a small business owner. I’ve reached a real level of legitimacy in my own mind, so I’m now thrilled to share my knowledge and experience with you. So click that subscribe button at the bottom of the page to receive updates from me! It’s a new year, a great time to plan for your next home project. Let me guide you towards making the right choices for your home that will keep you smiling for years to come!
