These homeowners approached us with a beautiful vision of what they wanted to include in their dream home, asking us to help them pull it off in a cohesive way.

I helped them weave rich, mid-century modern, transitional, and farmhouse design elements into their custom home in Iowa, built by H&H Home Builders.

I worked with them, their builder, and local suppliers to source finishes, fixtures, cabinets, countertops, lighting, furniture, artwork, and window treatments that embodied their vision and gave a nod to their life in Oregon.

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.
