Crystal Mercer Interior Design
St. George, NB
I love to transform houses into homes that reflect the lifestyle and personality of the people who live there. I believe beautiful design can be achieved at any price point. Simply applying a fresh coat of paint can change the mood of a room or a complete renovation can change the entire flow and use of your space. I look forward to working within your budget to help you create the home you dream of.
I am a new arrival to New Brunswick! I am inspired by all the rugged natural beauty of this province. I have been exploring the hiking and nature trails with my husband and two beautiful dogs.
My personal design style leans towards casual seaside retreats and rustic decor. Repurposing and refinishing furniture and accessories are some of my favourite pastimes. I also enjoy sewing and quilting; I believe every home deserves a beautifully handmade quilt to cuddle up with or display on a feature wall.
I am a student in the QC Design School Interior Design and Decorating Course. I am currently working on my final project and anticipate graduating in September. Additionally, I have completed a Bachelor of Arts as well as a Bachelor of Education from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
I offer a wide variety of services including colour scheme development, furniture layout, material selection, window treatments, room accessorizing, and material presentation board with samples. You can choose to have any of these services on their own or I can provide a complete room design.
Color Scheme Development: This includes a visit to your home to help determine colour scheme options for your room. This will include paint colour to accentuate your existing furniture or if you choose paint and fabric colour options for a complete redesign.
Furniture Layout: I will visit your home and take measurements of the room. I will then draw a scaled floor plan of the room with furniture layout options to reflect your desired use of the space.
Material Selection: I will assist you in the selection of flooring, wall treatments, counter options, etc of the room. We will work together to develop a pleasing combination of materials that are within the set budget for the project.
Window Treatments: I will help you decide on the treatment options for the windows. We will select curtains, blinds, etc from existing options or for an additional fee I will sew window treatments from selected fabrics.
Accessorize Room: This service provides you with the option to accessorize a room with existing or new items that will transform the feel of your space. Accessories include plants, artwork, books, pillows, etc. I will help you determine the focal point in the room and accessorize the room to harmonize the colour, theme, and mood.
Material Presentation Board: An inspiration board will be completed with a collection of paint chips, fabric swatches, material selections (stone, tile, etc) pictures of furniture selections, floor plan with layout, pictures of accessories, and inspiration shots. I will include shopping listings for all materials on the inspiration board.
