Change is difficult and different levels of decorating are available. We can incorporate what you have, giving you a new look, or start from scratch to build your dream. Either way, giving you a fantastic designer look that fits your budget is the challenge that we love about the process.

With a commitment to bring timeless and unique design into your surroundings, we will incorporate luxurious textures and one-of-a-kind furniture and accessories, along with your treasured items to provide a style all of your own.

A simply beautiful home was begging to exude the owners’ personality, making it fresh and cheerful. We added a warm palette of luscious color, designed a textural tv wall unit, making it appear as though it has always been part of the space , added a children’s gallery wall and repurposed some of their treasures, adding warmth and originality to their distinctive space. The owners were delighted and have decided to move ahead with Phase II, adding fabric and furniture, along with updating the dining room, so stay tuned...

"We have never partnered with someone to design our home though knew we needed help. We were pretty apprehensive about the process, fees and the overall deliverables. We chose Kathleen as our partner after interviewing several firms. From our first meeting with Kathleen we were impressed with her creative direction and attention to the smallest details. She presented us several visual options with detailed pricing so we could choose a direction that both worked for our family and our budget.

We then moved into the implementation that we have decided to do in phases. We just completed phase one which included painting of the entire downstairs, a new built-in for the family room, lighting fixtures and numerous accessories.

The entire package has literally transformed our home. The entire home is now completely different. It is warm, coordinated and just spectacular! We now have a blueprint for the next phases and are excited to continue to work with Kathleen on them.

In addition to the amazing design has been Kathleen’s overall coordination of all the vendors. My husband and I both work and we have four children. Other than a few small decisions that Kathleen wanted our input on, she has literally done everything! It is a rare talent to combine such design skill and detailed implementation and follow-through.

I would recommend Kathleen to any homeowner who is looking for a designer or someone, like us, who wasn’t sure they needed one. Your home is the biggest investment you will make and where you spend so much time. Kathleen is worth the investment."

Refresh and Revitalize

Staging is more than an exercise in tasteful interior design. It is a business decision that can have a huge impact on your financial return and timeline.

YOU DON'T GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A GOOD FIRST IMPRESSION! Prospective buyers enter your home with the thought of how they may feel living there.  Your home's staging, or presentation, is the most basic form of marketing and should characterize each room's personality and function clearly. It should be neat, clean and visually appealing.

Adding character and warmth into an otherwise sterile or ordinary space can keep prospective buyers interested long enough to make it through the foyer, wanting to explore the various rooms with a curiosity of what is to come. Introducing a few new pieces; something unexpected and whimsical or unusual to add visual interest makes it memorable and adds another level of significance.

A proposal will be submitted after a one-hour complimentary consultation to decide all costs associated with the scope of the project.

After being on the market for 4 months last fall, this lovely home had been overlooked. With just a few changes to edit furniture pieces, add color and warmth to their space, and beautiful new tile in the kitchen and master bath, it sold in just one week.

"My home was on the market last fall and I received feedback but no offers. I needed someone to look at my home with "fresh eyes" and help me make positive changes before I placed my home back on the market in the spring.

I met with Kathleen and we toured the three finished levels of my home discussing ideas that would accent the positive features of each room and stay within my budget. Kathleen's guidance and suggestions were a great resource to me during a stressful time and very much appreciated. I placed my home on the market this spring and received an offer the first week!

Thanks Kathleen!"
