The Heart and
Soul Behind the Lifestyle
My name is Tracy, and I know I’m the luckiest girl in the world. I live a fulfilling life in retirement where my husband, my ever-supportive life partner, encourages me to chase and celebrate my dreams while I do the same for him. For me, these dreams take the form of Heart and Soul Lifestyle. This company is an ideal outlet for my creativity as it combines my excitement for a luxurious lifestyle, my passion for all things beautiful with my love of helping others create their dream space.
But where did it all begin?
I have two sons, and together with my husband, I consider these three incredible men my lucky charms. My husband and I used to work in the stressful corporate world. We were fortunate enough to have careers that sent us from one end of the USA to the other, but we knew we were working towards someone else’s dream, and we longed to pursue our passions instead. So we began a new journey: retirement.
Now free from the 9-5 (and beyond) grind, we embraced the opportunity to travel for fun. We’ve been to mountains and beaches, and we adore Cabo San Lucas, where we connect deeply with the mountains and ocean and find ourselves closer than ever to the moon and stars.
Cabo San Lucas may be our home away from home, but our hearts belong in Kansas City. Built in 1970, our home here has always inspired me. After I found myself redesigning the interior again and again, I decided to outsource myself and help others find the same joy in their homes. When I started Heart and Soul Lifestyle, my home was the inspiration and is the basis for the logo’s design.
Now that I know where to direct my love for the art of interior design and decor, I find my desire to share the beauty I’ve created within my home is only growing. Our Kansas City home has become a gathering place for family and friends. Every time my house fills with those I love, my heart also fills with pride, gratitude and joy.
At Heart and Soul Lifestyle, we seek to help our clients fill their homes with luxurious and functional handmade items that showcase their style and spirit. By doing so, their new furniture will act as an extension of their heart and soul, into which they can invite their family and friends and all that they love.
We value superior quality, intentional sustainability practices and ongoing relationships with our artisans and clients. We carefully vet the US-based vendors we partner with to understand the materials they use and ensure their values align with our own. We want you to feel confident that the artisans you support and the products you purchase are excellent value for money and are helping to impact the world for good.
