Interior Design Approach

Home is your most direct, personal expression, a place of beauty and inspiration.

I provide a fresh pair of eyes to find a different arrangement of furniture or repurposed use of existing pieces to give new life to what you already own. I will always recommend spending on durability and quality as the best investment; and “shopping in your own home.” You can transform a hand-me-down chair into an heirloom, or an armoire can become a computer desk. Paint is one of the least expensive ways to impact your space. Fabulous fabric can transform a room.

How the Process Works
I offer a free one hour consultation in your home or place of business to establish your needs. We will discuss general design options and budget, and I will assess the space, measure and photograph the area you want transformed. Finding what makes an environment cohesive, welcoming and personal is exciting, and I am happy to guide the process, based on your taste and budget.
It is critical to see how materials look in your home. After discovering what is most important to your space I will coordinate choices and bring them to you: paint colors, fabric samples, flooring materials, etc., so you can see them in your own space and light. (What looks good on a chip in the paint store can be an unwelcome surprise at home.) This will be an exciting and creative process: I will shop for you, or with you, and pass my designer’s discount on to you. I will recommend sources for supplies, contractors, upholsterers or carpet installers to complete the transformation.
