I got so tired of scrolling through options that I just plopped a couple of items in there to visualize the space. Eventually, I felt embarrassed by the duckling I’d created. The room looked as if I was trying to re-create a West Elm showroom by memory using only stuff I can get from a local Walmart. I had to move on.
I help women who are frustrated and potentially even a little embarrassed about their home become house proud women. I work with you to create a home that welcomes family and friends by reflecting your timeless classic style.
Even before the design process begins, your Design Team can provide insight. This can include site selection and providing you with the feasibility and peace of mind of what you can and can’t do.
Happen to have your heart set on something special; a rear master suite, a 3-car garage, a double sized walk-in-robe? Our new home designs are flexible so you don’t have to be. Each of our house plans can be customised to suit your lifestyle, turned into right or left designs, or built as-is if you have fallen head over heels with a particular floor plan.
For the project, my boyfriend and I were willing to invest up to $3,000 on new furnishings and art (about a fourth of that budget I anticipate to make back in selling furniture we’re replacing). Our small (but reasonably sizable, for New York City) apartment needed the most work in the living / dining room, which is open to the kitchen. We cook at home a decent amount, but never have enough people over for a formal dining space. We do have friends over frequently to hang, drink, and play games, so we wanted the room to feel light, bright, and easy for multiple people to maneuver around.
While we were flexible about furniture choices, we did have some pieces we wanted to keep, like the gray / wood armchair I dragged home through the streets of Brooklyn on my own in the middle of August. There was no way this thing’s going on Craigslist just yet.
