Interior Design – One Step at a Time

We listen 

to your hopes and dreams for your space.  You may wish to share pictures – whether torn out of magazines or saved on a Pinterest Board.

We learn

 …during your complimentary in-home consultation where we get to see your room and it’s unique design elements.

We help you 

…set realistic expectations. Before we get started with any design work, we prepare a preliminary budget range for your review.  Once we have your guidance and a comfortable budget range is established, we can proceed to the design stage – doing floor plans, window elevations, and selecting fabrics and furnishing options.

We keep it simple 

…by presenting you with a complete room design and a selection of custom-curated products.  You get the benefit of our professional guidance and support as you choose elements that suit your style and comfort.   We then take care of ordering and handle any necessary follow-ups.  We even coordinate delivery and installation at a time that is convenient to you.
