I'm Anna Beth Eskridge, the interior stylist, organizer and lifestyle blogger behind Making Room for Peace.

When I’m not styling or decluttering, you'll likely find me in the kitchen trying out a new recipe, reading up on slow living, or catching up with a girlfriend at a local coffee shop.

We believe in using every part of our client’s story while simultaneously encouraging them to let go of the things that are no longer serving them. We want their space to be one that reflects not only where they’ve been but where they are and where they are headed next. We do this by helping them to reflect on their core values, and by being intentional about what they have in their home.

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re pretty big on "core values” around here… They are what help guide our design and decluttering process, determining everything from what materials we use, to what to keep, what to let go of, etc. Here, we share our core values with you:

  • THOUGHTFULNESS: whether its the words an email that we’re writing or the attention that we bring to each and every job, thoughtfulness is something that we value.

  • SLOW LIVING: this lifestyle doesn’t promise a quiet home but it does encourage health, community and wholeness. It’s about slowing down our fast paced lives and pausing before making decisions (big or small), as we consider how these decisions will affect not only us but our community, the Earth, and society as a whole.

  • HOSPITALITY: while we would love nothing more than to have each and every one of you over for a home-cooked meal (I do a roast chicken!), we realize that that’s not possible… Knowing this, we hope that you still feel at home here! At MRFP, we strive to exude a warm and uplifting spirit in everything that we do whether its working on a project or writing an Instagram post. You are heard, loved and welcome here.

  • FAITH: faith is an integral part of the story of making room for peace and is something that we can’t help but share with others. We know what its like to walk in fear and in darkness, but we also know what its like to live in freedom and in peace!

I'm a city-girl who enjoys being out in nature and who is fascinated with slow living. While I don't ever see our family moving into a tiny house I do have dreams of someday finding a home that caps in around 1,500 sq ft! I love to be at home but I also really enjoy being with others in community.

My husband and I have been together since our senior year of high school! He is recently earned his PhD in Physics while I earned a B.A. in interior design... opposites really do attract! We are looking forward to adopting children in the next few years.
