After years of partnering with builder Jeff Hendrickson on interiors for his clients, I jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with Jeff and his wife, Cindy, on their personal residence.

Jeff and Cindy were seeking a subtle palette of finishes in grays, taupes and whites paired with a clean-lined, contemporary aesthetic for their interiors.

I consulted with them on interior finishes, furniture layout, and selection for the main level that would flow with existing furnishings throughout the lower level.

The overall feel of the home is casually elegant and serves as a neutral backdrop for the subtle pops of color, contrast and texture on accessories throughout the home.

Let's Work Together

Good design takes time! We value all of our clients, past, present and future. Please note that due to high demand, we currently have a 45-60 day waitlist for new clients.

The first step for new clients is to fill out this form. Once submitted, we will send you a link to our new client questionnaire.

Once you've completed the new client questionnaire, we will review your answers and be in touch within 45-60 days to schedule our initial meeting at your home. This first meeting has a flat fee of $150 and is an information-gathering session. We meet you, measure your space, take photos, review your design needs and any architectural or builder blueprints that may be available, along with your saved design inspiration images.

Following that meeting, we will be in touch with an interior design proposal that addresses your project scope and will request a deposit for design services to get your project started.
