Creative and Affordable
I believe that making your space beautiful doesn't have to cost a fortune. Whether we use pieces that are new, repurposed, or refreshed, my primary goal is to keep your design affordable and stay on budget.
I like to find ways to incorporate your existing treasures before we shop for new pieces. My DIY techniques help to keep costs down while creating a space that feels like a warm blanket at the end of a long day.
I know that decorating your home can be overwhelming. Television gives us unrealistic expectations when it comes to working on projects. Within an hour (and sometimes 30 minutes), there's a completely finished, gorgeous house and homeowners that are deliriously happy. Nope. It's not real. It takes time–sometimes a long time–and sometimes involves lots of stress.
I feel your pain and want to take it away. Pulling together a beautiful, cohesive design that flows seamlessly and gives you a functional and intentional space is what I love to do.
I find ways to incorporate your treasured furnishings into your new design so that you can display pieces that have special meaning to you. After all, your home should represent all things that you love and that make you feel comfortable. Your home tells your story. And that story is told to all who visit.
