Investment partners approached Emily to help select the finishes for this Home Builder’s Association Parade Home. Shortly after, the home was presold, allowing Emily to personalize the paint selection, master bath, and kitchen finishes to align with the style preferences of the home buyers. This young family went with durable quartz countertops and classic design elements, like the grid applied molding fireplace surround with marble mosaic inset. Natural interior finishes, grasscloth wall covering, and a river rock shower floor, create a spa-like experience in the master bath.

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.
