Emily Hughes collaborated with Akar Architects and Klosterman Construction on this modern prairie home in North Liberty. The clients sought her out for input on interior finish selections, wanting a clean, modern look that fits in with the architectural aesthetic of the home but also incorporated warm, matte, and rustic elements to make the home feel timeless, comfortable, and livable.

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.
