Residential Interior Design Consultations

We offer interior design consultation services to prospective clients, as well as to business partners such as architects, realtors, contractors and landscape designers. From visiting prospective properties to online design, we listen. From that listening, creative and successful aesthetic ideas and solutions are enabled and implemented.


Full Service Custom Interior Design

For our clients interested in our specialty, full service custom interior design, our initial consultation is an interview, to determine if we think we’d make a good team to successfully create your dream home. We take on only those projects in which we’re confident we can exceed your expectations. Through a series of thoughtful interview questions, your priorities, style, functional requirements, decision-making style, budget, time frame and much more, will be discussed. This is both a discovery meeting, as well as a reality-check – are your budget and time frame reasonable for what you want to accomplish? Which resources will best align with your needs? If we think we’re a good fit, we’ll outline our process customized specifically for you, and move forward!


Interior Design for Divorced Men

Our award-winning design process can be particularly honed to address the unique needs of men finding themselves in a house devoid of their own personality. We help you tell your new story, in a comfortable, beautiful environment where you can move forward most joyfully and productively. Your budget will determine whether custom furniture, shopping at the Design Center, retail stores or online is the way to go. We’ll make sure expensive or embarrassing mistakes are avoided, and long-lasting results are yours to enjoy.
