Whether you need help with minor updating, large-scale redesign, renovations, color consultation, staging your property for resale to maximize your profits or new construction, I'll help you achieve the look you want on time and within budget.

• I believe your home should reflect your personal taste and style

About Me

I am a Certified International Staging & Redesign Professional (ISRP) and Certified Color Consultant.

My services are based on the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance and I take great pride in the ability to work with your existing personal items, furniture, accessories, and perhaps a few additional items are required.

I can also create a home from an empty space, perhaps you are moving to a bigger place and don't have all the furniture and accessories.

An initial consultation will enable me to determine what your are looking for, I will take all aspects into account and careful consideration will be given to your wants & taste. You may not even know what your style is, but I can help you make informed decisions so at the end of the project it feels like you are coming home to a place that is warm, inviting and relaxing.

A job well done is one that draws people into the space and makes them want to stay awhile.

As the designer it is exciting to create a "revitalized, comfortable and unique space that truly reflects who you are".

I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
