Creating a custom design plan is a time-consuming process and may take a couple of weeks to fully develop, depending on the scope of the project and your availability to visit sites for large selections like stone or flooring. Sometimes, selections are postponed until later when the project is underway to either source the right vintage item or let the room’s evolution be the guiding factor in a unique or pivotal design choice. For some purchases to be made online, I will provide you with affiliate links for which I make a commission at no cost to you. As a courtesy, please use these links so that I can maintain lower design fees.
Once the design plan is agreed upon and your subcontractor’s have submitted their bids work can begin. In this phase of the project, I can help you manage proper installation and re-construction. Most renovations come with numerous of unknowns for the homeowner. With my years of experience as a DIY’er and renovator, my knowledge of the processes and construction methods are a valuable resource.

Finishing the Room & Styling
Whether you need to fully style and decorate your newly renovated space or just want to make your current room shine, I can completely finish your room with accessories, rugs and art. Of course, I would be happy to incorporate your collected treasures or sentimental furniture into the design. Often times, the full vision for a space can’t be realized with just the main design elements in place. Carefully considered fabrics, pillows and accessories truly bring a room to life.
