Designer / Founder of White & Faded / Author of Beauty Restored

Founder of White & Faded, and author of Beauty Restored. Janet’s work has been featured in some of the top design magazines including Romantic Homes. With extensive experience within interior design, Janet has the ability to transform what many would write off as being a piece of trash, into a treasure fit for royals.
The beauty of it, is that you too can start with a thrift store or a flee shop find, even something you pick up on the side of the road and transform it into something magnificent! Janet loves taking daunting tasks and making them doable. She also loves watching as the value of a product increases dramatically, becoming a treasure you can pass down to further generations or make an income from and sell it for profit!
