Creating Thoughtful, Livable Spaces For You in the Twin Cities, MN

My goal is to help my clients create spaces within their home that function well and reflect who they are and what they love. I work collaboratively with clients by using online design boards that focus on furniture layouts and product recommendations, professional color advice using a trusted process and large color samples, shopping services that use my expertise and designer discounts whenever possible, and installation and styling services. In addition, I provide tools and resources for those who want to DIY and need a design plan to get started.

Combining Design Expertise with Your Unique Style

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3…


It Starts with You!

We’ll start with a consultation and fill out a design questionnaire with your style wants, needs, and wishes.


A Unique Design

Next, I’ll design a layout for functionality with specifications on size, shape, and color where you can see all the details.


Love Where You Live

And last, you can choose if you want hands-on installation and styling of your design or if you want a DIY option.

I promise I will always put your needs and wants first.

It’s a simplified process because I’ll present you with options and explain and teach you along the way. I happen to have the rare visual ability to see shapes, colors, and designs that are invisible to others. This means you’ll get more sophisticated results faster and easier.

Imagine your newly designed rooms. They feel fresh, welcoming, and so You! You love hanging out in them, even just walking by them makes you smile. And you know you got a high-end look for NOT a high-end price.
