LIVE LIKE YOU

Jill Sorensen, of Marmalade Interiors, wants one thing, for people to live in a home that reflects their true self.  Jill refers to herself as an "obsessive interior designer with a huge desire to help people improve their lives!" 
From this admirable trait came the evolution, and launch, today, of her new baby:


                                                             Live Like You





LIVE LIKE YOU offers over a hundred rooms, each one designed under the characteristics of a personality.  For each room, there is a free design plan and the availability to purchase the furniture and accessories directly from Live Like You.
Currently Jill has launched three of the 100 rooms on the site, with two more coming soon. 
The concept is brilliant, and Jill has done such an amazing job bringing it to fruition.
Congratulations Jill!

"The best home design is created just like the best way to dress - high and low and a little vintage"
