We are a client focused interior design service and store where a client's needs, style, and budget always come first. Services range from a simple room update to a full-home design with contractor coordination. In a new construction project– we start from the blueprint so that the entire project will reflect your needs.

I have been in the Interior Decorating business for 15 years working for one design firm locally. My favorite thing about my job is bringing comfort and warmth to my client’s home through room layout and color. My goal is to make my client’s home a true reflection of who they are.
