Hi! I’m Marissa,
your tell-it-like-it-is interior designer. I love creating beautiful spaces and have done it many times on a strict budget. I’m just as comfortable at the hardware store as I am at a Michelin Star restaurant.
I believe done is better than perfect and I am the opposite of a type-A perfectionist. I believe you can have it ALL. I believe you aren’t daydreaming, you’re manifesting.
But I also believe in fun and humor. I can’t help but bring my personality to the table, because that is part of me! So expect laughs along the way 🤣
Why “Barely Keeping It Together”?
As a busy millennial, I realized all the women I knew felt like we were barely keeping it together. Whether we were juggling a full-time job, a social life, mom’ing, dating, trying to stay fit, eat clean, have a beautiful home, or keeping up with the beautiful highlight reel of social media… we all had a lot on our plates. But… from the outside looking in, it looked like all of these women had it together. Wasn’t that a mind f*ck?! And so Barely Keeping It Together was born. This is where you have permission to feel like a hot mess on the inside and look like a rockstar on the outside.
