Making your house a home.
I am a full-time nurse and proud mother of five adult children.
I have an intimate approach to design; I get to know my clients and their personal style in order to transition their vision into a reality.
I have always enjoyed decorating and DIY projects. I have sewn curtains, cushions, and reupholstered furniture to enhance a room. I have sewn lined back tab curtains, goblet curtains and rod pocket curtains. I have sewn different style cushions to match a décor. I have a strong interest in learning new sewing style. I have also refurbished lamps and furniture to blend in with the décor of the room.
I have done window art paintings, enamel glass paintings, and added theme-based accessories to enhance the décor of a room.
To help enrich my passion, I have decided to take a course in decorating and design to increase my knowledge in this field.
I can design and decorate a room to suit the client’s desires and needs. I can help with furniture placement to suit the function and needs of a room; to achieve this, I would work with a floor plan. I can help choose colors, fabric patterns, textures, flooring, lighting and furniture for the room décor while keeping within a set budget. I can sew curtains, cushions and refurbish old furniture. I can do window painting that is washable so the décor can be changed with the room design or the season or holiday.
Maureen really took the time to consider my envision for my baby's room. All of her beautiful detail and hard work in the curtains, cushions and mobile really made the room unique. The style will not only work as a baby room but will function as my baby grows. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing job, she exceeded all my expectations!
I have recently bought my first house and have been in the process of repainting and decorating. I always ask Maureen for advice before starting a new room as I feel she understands the functions and outlay of a room best. Whether it comes to the organizational layout or color, I can always look forward to Maureen's input.
When I saw pictures of Maureen's work she did on her grand daughter's room, my response was: "Very nice! You could be a designer!" Not knowing she was actually studying interior decorating and design.
