My philosophy about design is that it should be down-to-earth and approachable. I don’t believe that the decorating process has to be expensive or intimidating, and I love finding a good bargain whenever I can! My goal is to maximize value and impact for my clients by sourcing high quality items that are reasonably priced while mixing in a few luxury or high-end elements (to the extent that a client’s budget will allow) in places where they will have the most impact or provide necessary quality and durability (like a statement chandelier or a well-built sectional sofa). Most importantly, I ensure that the design process is stress-free and that my clients love the results!
Home Styling Consultation
If you are a DIY person, and want to do the "leg work" of updating your space yourself but don't know where to start, my home styling consultation can put you on the right track.
Before we meet at your home, I will ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire regarding your goals for your project and send me photos of your space. This allows me to do my homework so that we can jump right into a productive design consultation when we meet.
During our two-hour, in-person consultation we will do a walkthrough of the spaces that you want redesign and discuss some or all of the following:
- Which existing furniture works and/or new furniture recommendations, plus furniture arrangement
- Paint color or wallpaper options
- Choices for hard surfaces, flooring, appliances & kitchen or bath fixtures
- Lighting and window treatment ideas
- Advice on decorative accessories and room styling tips to create a complete and cohesive look
By the end of the consultation, you'll have a new vision for your home and a plan to get it accomplished. And, if you find that you need additional help or guidance along the way, I am always available on an hourly basis to answer questions or help you source furnishings, materials and decor.
Complete Room Redesign
If you are starting with an empty room or need to do a complete redesign or remodel and do not have the time or desire to handle the details yourself, I will work with you to create a design plan that brings your vision to life. I will then oversee the entire design process in consultation with you, from sourcing furnishings, finishes and decor, coordinating with contractors (e.g., painter, electrician, plumber, etc.), to putting the final touches on the space when everything is in place.
