What exactly is it that I do as an interior designer?

You may know I've been a flooring expert for 20+ years. But did you know that I am also a professional interior designer? YES, I design SO much more than just flooring!

This is something that I forget not everyone knows, what I do or am capable of doing. 

Today, that's going to change - I'm going to tell you exactly what it is that I actually do.

Online Interior Designer

#1 As an interior designer I create total room makeovers 

Totally starting from scratch and creating a room with a new look? Perfect! This is a service where we choose primarily all new items including furnishings. It doesn't matter if this is a new construction or an existing home that needs to have an entire room decorated. Either way, I complete a totally new room design plan. 

We'll begin with a space plan to show exactly where the best locations are for your furniture. You will have a preview of your room before you ever even put the plan to action. Then I move on to choosing a color scheme and selecting patterns and fabrics. Finally, I put on the finishing touches with accessories  

Total room makeovers include everything to take a plain basic room and turn it into a professionally designed room. 

#2 As an interior designer I complete room refreshing

Room refreshing can take a room from drab to fab. This is a service that is common for existing homes. 

Sometimes we live with a room so long that we get tired of the same old look. However, you might not be ready to just do a complete remodel - you only need to redecorate. This is where a room refresh comes in! 

I use your style, likes, and dislikes to create a fresh new look for your room. Keeping your existing furnishings, I make sure they're in the best possible places for the space. Again, I begin with creating a new color palette, up to date pattern selections with fabrics, and finishing with showing you exactly what accessories will express your style best.  

Don't worry - you won't even have to figure out where those accessories go as I will show you a drawing of each wall in an elevation view. Easy peasy. 

#3 As an interior designer I provide decor coaching 

As an almost empty nester myself,  I know how it feels to lose my sense of self. As a mom, I spent years making sure that my kids had all their needs fulfilled all the while not realizing that I was neglecting my own needs. My kids are now getting older and I've learned that by redefining my home design style, I could begin to rediscover myself and who I am. 

With me coaching you along the way, you can create a room that reflects you and your style. You will finally rediscover your own sense of style based on your personality. A home is a reflection of ourselves and our family, but how can we reflect ourselves if we aren't sure what our style even is? I help to walk you through a course of defining your style again so you can create a home that tells your family's story even as the kids become adults. 

The services I provide are not limited to any room - they can be applied to bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and more! These are plans that are a DIY type experience, but don't worry - I'm here to help you and guide you with any bumps in the road as you go. 

Don't worry if you don't live in my area - my services are provided virtually and can be completed no matter where you're located.

How do I know that this works? First I have the street cred to prove it. I've been working with homeowners for years creating beautiful spaces (including the crazy busy peak of the housing market). With years of experience, I've developed the ability to see rooms inside my head (crazy, right - but true).  Ready to get started on your room?
