“I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT BRINGING MY CLIENTS WHAT IS NEW IN FUNCTION, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY IN WAYS THAT IT IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF THEIR LIVES.”

Oftentimes people are intimidated to bring an interior designer into their home, I’m not there to judge. I make it my priority to listen to the issues you are having with your home and then provide curated solutions. Together we will discover what it takes to fulfill your needs while creating something truly unique to you.

I offer three different levels of service:
Design Concierge

Design Partner

Design Consultant

These include all levels of design solutions from paint consultations, furniture layout and floor plans, lighting consultations and plans, signature “Room Lifts”, custom drapery and window treatments, project design, project planning and installation oversight.

DESIGN CONSULTANT

I’ll advise you on getting the biggest bang for the buck and the best function possible. Together we’ll discover what excites you, outline the parameters for success and make it happen.

DESIGN PARTNER

If you have started a project and run out of time or patience, I can guide you through what you can (and want) to do versus what is best for a professional designer or contractor.

DESIGN CONCIERGE

I take any feelings of anxiety, stress or insecurity and then banish them with a clear path to what you want, resulting in a home that supports and reflects how you and your lifestyle are changing.

INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES

Have you ever hired an interior designer before, and curious if it would work for you?

The introductory design packages that I offer don’t require a major commitment and may be the perfect fit on order to get your project moving forward with professional guidance.

  • Ask Me Anything
  • $650
  • We will spend up to two hours together where you can ask me any questions you may have about designing your space. Just a few topics that folks like to discuss include: how you can update a single room, selecting paint colors for up to two rooms, or getting guidance on how to execute the ideas and inspiration you have collected thus far.
  • DIY Consultation
  • $1,200
  • If you’d like to do most of the project yourself, you can talk with me first to avoid making expensive mistakes. Over the course of two meetings, we’ll select a color scheme, create a design concept and make a space plan with furniture options. You can keep these plans to guide you through the next stages of your project.
  • Remodel & Budget Exploration
  • $1,800
  • Over the course of three meetings, we’ll determine how to make your renovation a reality. To start, we discuss your needs and goals, followed by surveying the space with measurements and photographs. At our 2nd meeting, you’ll receive solution sketches for review, and our final meeting will include the general contractor to determine budget.
