Wanderin’ Soles Wanderin’ HOME MAKE IT! with MAL



What started out as a traveling shoe model side profession, turned into a full blown craving for traveling the world and exploring new places. For an entire year I traveled twice a month (some times for business, other times for pleasure. It seemed only fitting (no pun intended) for my travel journal to be named Wanderin’ Soles.

Although I’ve retired from the shoe modeling world and have slowed down on my travels to pursue other adventures; I made sure to capture the beautiful places I visited, learned some tips and tricks, and found some inspiration for my designs.

With a love of thrifting old, broken, and forgotten furniture pieces from estate sales and thrift shops. All you need is some elbow grease and the right amount of TLC. Transforming these one of a kind furniture pieces and then being reintroduced back into the home inspired our name, Wanderin’ HOME.

Aside from one of a kind refinished furniture, we’ve expanded our brand to customized home decor pieces, and interior design services!

Ever since I can remember I was rearranging my room every month or doing some sort of arts & crafts thing. I grew up taking sewing lessons (which is still a favorite past time) and in a family that is heavily influenced in Interior Design- so I like to think it is just in my blood. I love looking at something and figuring out how to recreate it, or make it better, or give it new life. As I grew up my budget couldn't quite afford the nice furniture or fashion designs and trends I was seeing (probably due to all my traveling) so I learned how to do all sorts of hacks. You know the saying "Monkey see, monkey do"?? Well, consider me the monkey. My passion continued into an education where I obtained an A.S. in Art and Design from Utah Valley University and a B.S. in Interior Design from Weber State University.
