The owners of this stately custom home in Cedar Rapids sought out Emily’s help with the interior design for the seating area of their lower-level game room. This fireside lounge area needed to be comfortable, durable, and sophisticated to meet the entertaining needs of both the parents and their teenage sons while staying true to the warm-toned, elegant design aesthetic of the home. Poufs near the television provide casual seating for their sons’ gaming, while tufted leather sofas and an oversized ottoman give the family a space to kick back and relax. Emily took the couple’s artwork inspiration and ran with it, painting a series of trees to hang over their shuffleboard table.

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.
