I believe that you can achieve a great look in your space without paying a fortune. In fact, you can have a stylish, well-designed home for very little money.
My favorite thing to do is to take "ugly" things and make them pretty. Whether it be an old house, scratched up piece of unloved furniture, or forgotten weed-filled garden, design is my passion.
I decorated my room for the first time when I was 13 years old after getting hooked on watching HGTV. It was from those shows that I decided I wanted more than anything to be an interior designer; it is what I love. I studied design abroad in Paris (talk about a dream come true) and later graduated from Meredith College in 2009 with a degree in Interior Design and Art. At the time, the economy had plummeted, and understandably few people had the means to hire an interior designer. I learned that even though a client's budget is small (itty bitty in some cases), you can still make a huge impact with little changes like paint, re-arranging furniture, de-cluttering and bringing in accessories. You just have to know what you are doing and where to shop.
This is where I come in. I would love to help you transform your space by utilizing my design background along with my innate thriftiness. To be honest, if you have an extravagant budget, we are probably not a good fit. Small budgets are my forte, and I want to help you stretch every dollar. I charge only a flat fee for time, not a percentage. Any discounts I am able to score, I pass on to my clients. I am a designer you can trust with your home and your budget.
Feel free to drop us an email anytime! I love working with homeowners, builders, and real estate agents. Initial design consultations are complimentary, and design services begin at $100. We are currently located in Raleigh, NC.
