Interior Designers are scary.
We sweep in with all these big ideas with big price tags attached. We use words like "undertones" and "marquetry" and suddenly you're wondering why you let this crazy woman into your home who wants to spend your entire life savings on a grand, inlaid chest to house your grandmother's China. You know - the China you never use?
What if I told you that Interior Designers are actually here to help? A good designer listens to what you need and what you can afford and tries to make your life both beautiful and functional. You'd let her into your house, right?
Reconfiguring your interiors doesn't have to be overwhelming. Sometimes, you may need a "right now" solution while the kids are young and the couch is being destroyed. Other times, you want to invest in better quality pieces because after years of living with your dorm-era futon, you're ready for something new.
I believe in walking the line between high and low. Knowing when to splurge, and when to conserve. Every project is a balance of space and budget.
I'm here to help you eliminate some of the guesswork. Are you lost on where to start and where to shop? My DIY design and space planning services are an easy, practical place to begin. I’ll help you, every step of the way, to fall in love with your home.
