Interior Design for New Homes, Remodels and Single Rooms

If you’d like to learn more about the design process and whether we would be a good fit to collaborate on your perfect space, you may set up a free initial design consultation. This 20-30 minute meeting helps me understand your goals and can take place in your home or over the phone. I can then help you develop a plan to effectively and efficiently accomplish your design goals while staying within your budget.



Interior Design Process

The typical process includes multiple steps to ensure a positive and productive design experience.



Initial Consultation & Budget Analysis
In this first stage, we meet to review the scope of the project and budget.


Site Visit & Field Measurement
A detailed floor plan helps the selection and ordering process go smoothly. It is critical to have exact dimensions for the space before proceeding.


Space Planning & Selections
A series of drawings (elevation, detail, floor plans) helps you to visualize the design concept and furniture placement. Digital image boards may also be created to provide an overall sense of the spaces with furnishings and accessories personally selected for each area.


Presentation & Project Management
After approval of the space plan and selections, I will provide a shopping list and image board so that the client may order at his/her convenience. After delivery, we will meet again to ensure perfect placement of all furnishings.

Design services are available for individual rooms or an entire home.


Using field measurements taken on site, I use software to create 3D drawings for your space. This ensures that all furniture selections are a perfect fit, and that the arrangement works for your family’s lifestyle.



From soft neutrals to bold colors, from traditional patterns to modern geometrics, I work with clients to develop a color palette which will achieve the desired effect. Color consultations may be part of a whole-home project or to freshen up a space without doing major renovation.


Determining what works well together can be challenging, and I often meet with clients who feel overwhelmed by all the design decisions they face for their project.  I help select fabric, tile, stone, flooring, window treatments and everything in between so that the finished space meets their vision for their home.



Each part of the home should reflect the client’s personality and style.  I help my clients personalize their spaces with thoughtfully arranged accessories, books, and plants, as well as artwork and photography.


Cabinetry designed to meet specific needs, whether in the kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, or for a custom furniture piece, can add a distinctive touch to any design. I can facilitate a private meeting with my cabinetry vendor to create the ideal layout for your space and select unique finishes, including countertops, backsplash and cabinet lighting.

Custom window treatments, whether shades, blinds, shutters or fabric designs, are the final touch in any space for a completely polished look.  I will work with my fabricator to select unique fabrics and styles for draperies for a whole home or a single room.
