Our Services


My passion is helping bring joy into homes by updating any large or small space. There is no cookie cutter project. Let’s find out which service is right for you.


Every project begins with a consultation.

“Pick My Brain” Design Consultation

Imagine you get to “pick my brain” on any home refresh project, before you make costly mistakes. I will give you the direction you need to update your finishes so they feel fresh, current and fit your style and budget (or help you create one). You can DIY confidently or hire me to execute some or all of your design project.

  •  Furniture and home décor selection and placement
  •  Paint color that is right for your home
  •  Drapery/window treatments/blinds
  •  Styling (surfaces, sofas, beds, walls, art, rugs, etc…)
  •  Lighting & plumbing fixtures
  •  Permanent finishes (i.e., flooring, countertops, backsplash)
  •  Exterior colors/design

Consultation: $425.00 up to 2 hours

*If you need more help after this consultation, we can discuss next steps.


Ready to Remodel Consultation

Are you ready to update your home and want more than a contractor? You want both a designer and contractor to help design, guide and support you throughout your home improvement project. I will help you with design, add function and finishes that work with your home, your style and your budget!


Here is what it would look like working with me on a remodeling project

  • The consultation will include me coming to your home to discuss your concerns, options, design ideas and general ballpark budget numbers.
  • I will spend time getting to know you by asking you questions to help guide the design decisions. I will create possibilities to solve your problem areas.
  • If we both agree this is a project you want to move forward with, we will discuss next steps to design and begin the bidding process.


Consultation only: $425 up to 2 hours

*Plan development, bid proposal, and choosing design finishes may have an additional fees depending on scope of work.

Project Management + Design Consultation

Home refresh without the stress! (Not a full remodel) You’re busy- I get it, you don’t have the time, don’t have the contacts or want the hassle to hire and manage your project. (Paint, flooring, backsplash, countertops, lighting, etc...)

  • I will discuss the scope of work, budget and offer suggestions to get the most bang for your buck.
  • I will also choose the finishes to ensure they coordinate with the rest of your home.
  • I will get bids, hire, manage, coordinate schedules and pay the bills for all of my trusted subcontractors. By doing this, I can ensure satisfaction is guaranteed.

Consultation up to 2 hours: $425 Depending on scope of work this fee will

include the bid process.


New Home Building Consultation

Imagine having no regrets after making 100’s of decisions on your newly built home. Rest assured by hiring me to guide you every step of the way through planning and building your dream home will make the process easy and without regrets.


I have decades of experience building, designing and choosing finishes for new construction homes. Planning and designing before you begin will help give you and your contractor a clear direction that will save you time, money and offer peace of mind before, during and after your home is built.
