Design Services

As your designer, I am here to assist you with what ever design dilemma may come your way.  I can help you as little or as much as you want.  I feel that all good design starts with a casual conversation!   I need to learn a little bit about you and  how you would like to see your space.  I am a firm believer that good design is about more than just a pretty room, but about how you live in it! I will listen and guide you in the best direction for you and your home!   Remember, I am here for you to make your home design dreams come to life!

My design services all depend on your needs.  I offer full design services, online design, color consultations, accessory shopping services and design for home staging.  Give me a call so we can set up your consultation and take that step towards making your home beautiful!

Design for Home Staging 

If you are selling your home and you are like most people, you like your home just the way it is.  Often it’s difficult to see the changes that are required to sell, but a professional incite can be the difference between selling quickly for more money, and your home languishing on the market for many months.
