Although I have experience in restaurant, office and commercial design, in recent years, I've focused on residential design, ranging from complete home remodeling to a quick freshen-up for a single room. I've also branched out into staging for those who are intending to sell their homes, and with more than 15 years experience in the model home industry, I have unique skills and perspectives for marketing homes for quick and profitable sales. Whether my client needs help choosing a new paint color, or a complete reworking of interior spaces and styles, I strive to listen well, understand their needs and bring together all the elements necessary to give them the look they will love. I firmly believe that for any design decision to be a good one, it needs to 1) be completely functional 2) look fantastic, and 3) be a great price. These are the factors that make any purchase a great value, and I strive to give my clients the best value possible.
