When I started this business in 2011, I focused on “budget decorating.” The country was in recession. People were tightening their belts. But this is also how I have always decorated (and dressed!): affordable vintage and big box finds mixed with high quality splurges that last. As I worked with more and more people, I realized that “budget” is relative. Everyone has one, and no matter what the size, most of my clients want the same thing: good value.
To feel great about decorating your home, it’s important to know what you value most. I remember an episode of What Not to Wear where a woman spent most of her budget on one perfect Prada dress. That worked for her, but it wouldn’t be right for everyone. Some people might prefer to compromise a little on everything in order to have a complete wardrobe. So too at home: part of my job is guiding you to choices that reflect not only your taste, but also your lifestyle and your values.
I work on small and large projects, both here in the Twin Cities and across the country. Every project is unique, but most include some or all of these services:
• Design Framework
• Space Planning
• Design Boards
• Material Selection
• Project Management
• Installation Oversight
• Art Selection
Most clients hire me on an hourly basis, which I have found to deliver the best value, as well. For the ability to plan all expenses from the get go, flat fees may be available depending on project scope.
Think I might be the decorator for you? Let’s talk. An initial phone call is a great way to get to know each other and see if this is a good fit.
In the end, I want to transform your space from a house you like to a home you love. But I also want you to have fun and learn from the process, and to feel great about the choices we make together.
