Meet Jade Timmerman of Jade Timmerman Interiors!

Jade is a coffee-sipping, clean design-loving, person with a sense of calm that follows her wherever she goes. She launched Jade Timmerman Interiors four years ago. The timing we chose to shoot her Member Feature ended up being perfect because she recently moved to a new South Tampa office with lots of natural light. I know you’ll love getting to know Jade as well as hear her out on topics like how she got started, what it’s like being a mom of three & a business owner, and how she developed a niche for herself in the design world.

We encouraged members to B.Y.O.V., and as you can see from these photos by Jessica Fredericks Photography, they definitely brought some vision to the table. Cheers to 2019!

Meet Tona Bell of The Paper Seahorse!

Tona is the woman with the vision behind The Paper Seahorse, an oasis of paper, journals, letter writing, & crafting in South Tampa. She’s supportive, brilliant, & gives the best hugs. Tona opened The Paper Seahorse in October of 2015, a big departure from her previous role as Co-owner of Tricycle Studios, a marketing agency she launched with her husband over 20 years ago. After working every Sunday for 15 years and working from illness to illness, she landed in the hospital with a bad infection. This was the catalyst for a big change she would make, where she would not only prioritize herself and her health, but she’d also take a big leap & reinvent her life.

Meet Danielle Ferrari of Valhalla Resale!

We’ve all had those “I have nothing to wear moments”, and Danielle has worked hard to create a ‘collective closet’ where we can feel comfortable in our own skin while we shop for unique clothing that we can borrow or purchase.

When Danielle learned this, it led her down a path towards sustainability in all areas of her life.
