Let's work together.

We'll transform your home into a beautiful and meaningful haven.  

We're happy you're here, taking a closer step towards creating a home to meet your personal dreams and goals.  We understand there's more to design than meets the eye.  There's an essence to be discovered and revealed in your home.  It may be your place for respite; a place to re-energize.  It may be your place for entertaining; a place for being recharged by people and activities. Whatever defines home for you, it should be a haven designed with intention, filled with imagination, accomplished with ease, and most of all - mindful of you.      

 

The Starting Point

Our introductory consultation offers two, distinctively different options and are detailed, below.

Starting Point One:  Full-Service | Remodeling | New Construction Focus

2.5 hours maximum |  Travel fees may apply if outside of our office range

This consultation is our first step in understanding your needs, providing guidance, and igniting the design vision for your existing home or the one you've dreamed about constructing.

A portion of our meeting will be set aside to review your home and/or your project plans, while noting your routines and your interests.  We even have a fun and exclusive method for quickly defining your design style and preferences! 

We’ll discuss projected timelines and budgetary goals for bringing your project to the finishing point.  All questions are welcomed.  In fact, we’ll look forward them.  You’ll be provided with dedicated attention utilizing my professional talent, training, and years of experience.

Throughout this initial meeting, you’ll be able to experience how our services are delivered, while appreciating reliable design advice.

Starting Point Two:  Design Support Consultation  

2.5 hours maximum | Best for short-distance meetings

If you're considering handling a project on your own, this service allows you to initiate the process within a single consultation.  It's a great method for receiving laser-focused advice for the following:  planning for furniture purchases, room arrangement, window treatment ideas, color palette selections, bookcase styling, backsplash design, or where to begin when considering refreshing a room.  We can plan to address priority items for one or two areas, keeping the time allocation in mind.

Before my departure, you’ll have a list of notes to follow, along with materials suggestions.  (Access to my firm's specialized service providers and to-the-trade sources is reserved for clients who have opted for our full-service design experience.)

If after this meeting we determine either a Full-Service or Design Day option will be a better fit, you can easily advance to one of those service levels.

Full-Service Interior Design


There’s a common thread connecting our full-service design clients; a desire for home to be a place of renewal, living more effectively, including a beautiful sense of ease. They're enthusiastic about investing in a process which brings their dreams to fruition, giving them more time to realize other important endeavors.  Does this ring true for you? 

Whether engaged in raising a family, flourishing careers, traveling the world, or in the midst of important life transitions, trusting your project to our skilled hands allows you to receive the most personalized level of our turn-key service. The end result delivers lovely and meaningful spaces; room-by-room - your custom design experience.

We begin by scheduling our Starting Point initial consultation to review your project; gathering important information while sharing some inspiring design direction.  We'll determine objectives, budgets, and the team members who will play an important role. 

Our Letter of Agreement and Proposal will be presented for approval and a remittance for our design fee will be received.  We'll develop your Master Plan, including space-planning, design drawings, and storyboards to bring the design concept to life. 

Presentations and reviews will allow for ordering product and will move us towards the project management phase.  Finally, the deliveries and installations will bring us to the reveal and completion, where we oversee every detail for a photo-worthy finish!

Our EXCLUSIVE, Multi-Step Process provides clear and concise guidelines for moving a room from concept to completion. 

Remodeling & New Construction


If you’ve been presented with the exciting opportunity to remodel your home, to either improve the function or bring it to a more current style, the question of how to begin can seem daunting.  Perhaps you’re considering a new build for a change of location or lifestyle and need assistance with all of the selections.

As your project liaison, we'll focus on creating a vision and will provide a process to clearly communicate design concepts, projected budgets, and how your project will be organized.  Our custom solutions are designed to bring you the ultimate living experience. We eliminate second-guessing from the beginning so you can enjoy your design experience from start to finish.  

We team up with some of the best vendors and contractors in our area to source tile, cabinets, fixtures, moldings and all related services to provide the ultimate combination of performance and beauty.  Exterior and interior solutions are included. We’ll review everything from how you turn on the lights to helping you pave the way for accommodating future needs.

This option has similar parallels to our full-service process in regard to the degree of the detail in decision-making and project reviews.  We'll begin by scheduling our Starting Point initial consultation for a full review of your plans, prior to any site visits, if your project is related to new construction.  If you're considering a remodeling project, a site visit would also be planned. 

We'll work with the construction team to establish milestones and to meet deadlines.  Our design fee is based on the project size and scope of services to be provided and will be submitted in advance for agreement.  

   

Design Day Consultation


Think of this service as having access to your personal design pro for accomplishing specific objectives for your home’s interior.  Our advice will provide you with the extra confidence to independently move forward and within your own timeline. 

Do you need or want:

  • assistance with re-imagining existing furniture and accessories while incorporating fresh design ideas? 

  • decorating direction, as you've just moved and can't figure out where to put certain pieces or where to hang art?   

  • guidance with a few permanent finishes, such as tile, counters, or flooring, as you’re preparing for a remodel? 

  • the experience of working with an interior designer, prior to making a longer-term commitment?

If you're not sure where to start, we can help fill in the blanks.

We'll determine the design hours needed, allowing for a minimum block of four hours together.  Upon completion, you will receive a follow-up list to recap the day, along with an action plan to implement on your own.  If a second day of service is required, we will coordinate that with you. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Empty to mostly empty rooms or ongoing lists would be better addressed by our Full-Service option.  This service is not meant for oversize rooms, full-scale remodels, or custom design solutions through our trade sources or vendors. 

GEOGRAPHICAL COVERAGE AND AVAILABILITY:  We provide Design Day Consultations within a shorter distance of our office as travel time is a consideration.  Please complete our Client Questionnaire and we'll contact you about this specialty service.
