What can you offer as a professional interior designer?
Hiring a professional interior designer is a key element to achieving a finished and completed look that reflects your tastes and style. I have years of experience, relationships with local vendors, artisans and installers as well as to the trade access to interiors products and furnishings. I also provide clients with an overall design plan, renderings if necessary, shop drawings, purchasing management and installation management. For my out of town clients I offer on site delivery and inspections of furnishings to take the stress out of your next visit.
What is a Design Process and what can I expect?
The design process is a system that will execute a timely manner and will help achieve the overall goals of the project. The time frame between our initial consultation to completion of the project depends on a lot of factors but in most cases takes anywhere from 2-5 months.

The Importance of Budgets
Money conversations can be hard but they are absolutely necessary when it comes to designing and furnishing your home. Knowing what you would like to invest in our project allows me to efficiently source appropriately priced furnishings and stay within your budget expectations.
