Certified Interior Decorator

Services

Clients who are considering a move are often concerned that the purchase of an older home may entail great expense in renovating and decorating. Those purchasing new homes may feel overwhelmed by the possible cost of starting with a blank canvas.

I can demonstrate to you that the style and comfort you desire can be attained within your budget requirements. By updating and integrating existing furnishings, utilizing fine consignment or estate sale "finds," and adding budget-conscious new additions, finished interiors "look like a million" but are most cost effective.

Redecorating an existing home can also be daunting. Fear not! We can achieve innovative and stunning new decor that is tailored to your budget through color coordination, furniture placement, creative accessorizing, and my extensive knowledge of the many terrific resources where "best buys" may be found.

Refresh/ Remodel/ Renovate         ▼

In order to create a cohesive, comprehensive plan for the remodeling/renovation, I should be involved with you and your contractor from the very beginning. This includes space planning, assisting in the selection of flooring, hard surfaces in kitchen and bathrooms (tile, marble, granite, etc.,) color palette of paint and wall coverings, fabric choices for bedding, upholstery, slip covers, and window treatments, room design and furniture placement, lighting plan, utilizing the furnishings you already own and wish to keep into the renovated home, selection and purchasing of new furnishings (furniture, accessories, art, lighting fixtures, etc.) Only when all of these elements are selected with an entire design plan in mind, will they relate to each other, complement and enhance each other, and ensure one beautiful flow throughout the home.

The same holds true for any redesign or redecorating project you are considering, small or large. The earlier in the process I am working with you, the fewer mistakes will be made in all those choices you need to consider. Even the smallest project should result in the most beautiful, functional and cost-effective space you desire.
