“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are, and not be questioned.” …….Maya Angelou
My Philosophy on Decorating
Your home, by definition, should be your sanctuary, a soft place to land, a place that gives you pleasure and helps you to feel supported in this busy world we live in. It is your foundation, a way for you to love yourself and those that live with you. Fortunately, creating a such a place, need not require a great amount of space or money. It does take some time and effort to clean, de-clutter and organize, as a first step towards creating your sanctuary, but it’s absolutely worth it. Let your home be a gift to yourself. You are worth it.
How I Work
Creative use of space and color goes a long way. I bring my skill, creativity and talent to help you create your sanctuary, your home. I approach each job with frankness, openness, flexibility and respect for your time and your pocketbook. The best results flow from our free exchange of ideas not by the imposition of mine. My artist’s on-the-spot sketches serve to communicate my thoughts efficiently and allows for any modifications as a result of your feedback. Collaboration is the name of the game when working with me. That’s why you will end up satisfied. If you’re not happy, we’re not done!
I start with the accessories and furnishings that are on hand. It reduces both our costs and the Earth’s resources, product manufacturing expenses and transportation costs. When we use these things that you have lovingly gathered over time, it ads a unique and charming warmth that reflects your personal taste, history and travels. That’s what a real home is. Because I don’t judge what you have, I can appreciate it and bring out the best in it., just like we do when we don’t prejudge people. So when I finish reworking your things, you will have an enhanced appreciation for what you have and a new found respect for and understanding of your personal style. My job is to make the most of it. It’s much like a flattering hair cut. It looks much better, but it’s still you. How satisfying!
