Paint Color Selection
I can help you select and coordinate your
paint colors to create a cohesive palette for
your home. My large, 8.5" x11" paint
swatches make visualizing much easier
during our color consultation!

furniture or you are starting from scratch with
an empty room, I can help you determine the
optimal furniture combination, size, and
arrangement for your space.
I travel with furniture sliders to help us
redesign and rearrange your space.
I can shop with you online or in local stores
within my service area, and I can point you
toward great sources for design elements
ranging from furniture and accessories to
flooring, fixtures, lighting, fabrics, rugs,
artwork, and window treatments.
Home Staging for Resellers
Staged homes sell faster and for more
money than homes that haven't been staged.
I offer concrete, actionable, practical
recommendations for every room in your

Finding and Defining Your Style
Does your home feel like it isn't "you"? I love
to help clients name and create their own
signature decorating style. Style quizzes in
magazines are too general to be useful.
Which shapes, patterns, textures, colors,
wood tones, metal finishes, and symbols
appeal to you?
Show me pictures of rooms that make your
heart sing, and together we'll explore how to
create a similar look and feel in your home.
Organizing & Decluttering--
I have worked with many adult clients with
ADD/ADHD, and I have a special interest in

create beautiful, functional homes. I can help
you brainstorm and design systems so that
your home works with you and supports
you. No judgments, just support!

nationwide via Skype, phone, and email for

Hopeless? Homes can bring up big
emotions. I want to help you feel better,
both throughout our collaboration, and
ultimately, living in your home. Changing

synthesizing, honoring, and celebrating.
