Affordable interior designer & Decorator

Unlike traditional interior designers, I'm extremely cost-effective and resourceful with your budget and I don't select exorbitant, overpriced items & charge you mark ups. I always try to find quality, in-stock items that you approve so there are no scary surprises!  Items you can get without delays. I can even work mostly with what you have to dramatically enhance your space or start from scratch if you're ready. I can work with most any size budget!

Most Popular Interior Design Packages  - My rate is $100/hr.

In-Home Interior Design Consultation (with Recommendations Checklist)

Cost: $300

Most clients start with this package because it is my most affordable option and a great way to know how to immediately improve your spaces. I request photos in advance and then tour your home and review up to  5 spaces in person, assessing your needs and making recommendations for your space. (If you need a few more rooms toured, no problem, but I will only focus my written recommendations on your main 5 areas so I can stay within our time limit.) Then I email you a comprehensive written checklist with my recommendations within 1-2 days so you can improve your space on your own. From there, some clients will purchase more hours of help while others will choose to tackle the checklist on their own. 

Not a Design Pitch or Presentation

Many interior designers will to sit you down for a full presentation & sales pitch at the in-home consultation, which is NOT my business model. Our meeting will be a hands-on tour, where we walk through your home together and I give you immediate and specific written recommendations that you can actually implement on your own, or choose to add more hours if you prefer more help.

Time allotment:  1 to 1.5 hours in your home and 1 - 2 hours processing and compiling my recommendations that are specific to only your home. 

Pick Your Project 

I am happy to provide free estimates to any of the projects below. 

Whole Home Design/Decorating

I love new move ins, merging households, revamping or sprucing up your look, and finding creative and cost-effective ways to maximize your budget and make your home look amazing.

Room by Room Design/Decorating

Let me help with your problem areas; living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, guest rooms, home offices, entryways, family rooms, media rooms, game rooms, bath & kitchen help, 

Room Spruce up and Styling  

If you have a drab, cluttered or outdated room, let me help. I'll tell you what to keep, what to change, what to de-clutter, and how to drastically improve your space. Then I come by and style it all for a dramatic improvement for a reasonable cost. 


Staging & Finishing Touches

Want your home to look like a beautiful and cozy model home? Let me help you with all those niceties and finishing touches that you see in a well-designed home.  

Affordable Draperies (non-custom) 

Shhhhhh! They look custom but they're not and are just a fraction of the cost! My clients are amazed how adding drapes in living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms can make a dramatic difference in their homes! 


Merging New and Old Items

Keeping some things, but need some new items too?  Merging households? This is my jam! You won't believe how I can work mostly with what you already have and bring in a few new pieces and accents to personalize and pretty up your space. 

Renovation and/or New Build Selections

Let me guide you during the process and help you choose paint colors, finishes, flooring, hardware, backsplash, and lighting looks to avoid costly mistakes and surprises. I create a comprehensive “look board”  so you can see how all of your items and color scheme will work beautifully together. Plus, I can be on standby to answer any tricky questions that always come up during your project. I have a lot of experience with renovations and can help you avoid mistakes.

If you prefer to maximize your design hours by having a specific project done virtually (less hours because there are no home visits) I can customize an affordable package for you as well.
