Initial consultation - $350

Are you ready to save time and make the right design decisions the FIRST time?

My initial consultation is like a crash course. You will get ALL of my knowledge from the past 25 years in the construction and design business!

This is for you if:

  • You have been thinking about remodeling and not sure where to begin or what it will cost (I can give you "ball park" numbers)
  • You want to DIY your own remodel project and need help choosing finishes
  • You are ready to sell your home and not sure what improvements will get you TOP DOLLAR
  • You need new paint colors. I will bring my LARGE paint samples and give you colors that will enhance your home finishes NOT the latest fads. I will look at all of your permanent finishes and analyze the undertones so you will choose the right color for your home-the first time!
  • You want to get your home decor out of another era and you've watched every HGTV show, “pinned” thousands of pictures on Pinterest and now your head is spinning!
  • You are ready to build a new home, but not sure where to begin or how to choose all of the finishes so it looks cohesive, custom and a space you will love

You give me up to 2 hours of your time I will give you:

  • New, fresh ideas that will be right for your lifestyle, family and budget for ANY of your home improvement projects
  • Specific paint colors (if needed)
  • A general plan of action to help you get focused with establishing a game plan on any home improvement project you may have

Need more after the consultation? No problem! I will talk about what the next steps are if you choose to work with me on your project.

Before our visit, I'll have you fill out a short survey

What my customers are saying:

"We thought it would be nice to have the help, but had NO idea how much time, effort, expense and stress she would save us! With her experience and great eye, we were able to pick out a gorgeous paint pallet for the whole house, granite tops, ideas on lighting, hardware and other touches that we didn't think of." -Jim & Nancy

  • Handling daily issues and questions during the construction process
  • Ensuring all materials are ordered and delivered to the site and subcontractors arrive on time, notifying you if there will be a delay

What my customers are saying:

"Because of Paula, we now have a beautiful, new master bathroom. She made our remodel a fun experience from start to finish. She made great suggestions and helped make decisions that we would still be stewing about. I would recommend her for any project and can't wait to be able to work with her again." - Joni & Joel


The investment for this service is a flat design fee based on the size and scope of your project, or blocks of time can time can be purchased.

For many homeowners, the sheer volume and complexity of decisions involved in pulling together a new home construction or remodeling project can be very overwhelming.

Because every project is unique, I need to learn about your project and your needs before offering a quote. If you are interested in having me help you with any or all of these decisions and want to discuss your project, please complete this short survey.

What my customers are saying:

"Paula figured out very early on that I needed my selections narrowed down to help make my decisions on my new home. She helped keep the project manageable because I work and have three kids with crazy schedules. She thought about my family’s needs now, and as they grow because we plan on being in this house a long time! Her contacts made it easier and she took the time to explain things and went above and beyond working with us on getting the plan just right. We had no clue as to what we needed when we started, from a design perspective and she guided us the whole way. She helped me choose everything from fixtures to paint colors!" -Traci


Whether you’re a homeowner getting ready to sell or a real estate agent working with a client, you want to present a home in its best possible light. A well staged home sells 3 times faster and for 6-17% more. Furthermore, realtors are more likely to show a house that looks move-in ready.

Initial required consultation

I will tour your home from curb to the backyard, suggesting improvements that you can do to help sell if faster and educating you on maintaining the home while it's on the market.

This will include:

  • Choosing paint colors that are fresh and current, which compliment your home’s permanent finishes.
  • Suggesting which pieces of furniture to keep, move or get new
  • Suggesting what to de-clutter or remove from walls

After the consultation, we can discuss if you wish to hire me to manage any of the improvements I suggested for your project.

What my customers are saying:

"Paula was such a pleasure to work with in helping me paint our whole house and decorate a few areas! She knew how hesitant I was in choosing too bold of colors, so she helped me pick out a few neutral colors that I absolutely love! I can interchange decorations all year and I'm so happy with how everything has turned out! She is aware of your budget and has a knack for picking out beautiful decor. I had such a fun time shopping with her, and, most importantly, she worked around my busy schedule to get what I wanted done in a timely manner. You will not be disappointed to have Paula help you with your household updates!!" -Jenni & Josh
