My passion for residential design began as a teenager with an appreciation of historic homes. The stories that a home’s architectural exterior and its’ interior rooms could tell, have always fascinated me. Taking note of the intricacies and details of these homes would fill me with wonder and delight. Streets came alive with personality because of the design of these homes. The rooms within them helped shape the lives of their families through the years. I have always had a strong connection with houses, and know well that they impact how a person feels. Homes have the ability to tell the tales of the people who reside within them.
Knowing that my future needed to be involved with the expression of those stories, I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design at the CIDA and NCIDQ accredited North Dakota State University. My experience includes:
Designing whole home floor plans
Interior and exterior selections in new construction
Reimagining existing homes with a partial remodel
Room by room refreshes
Paint color selection
The relationship I form with each of my clients enables me to design spaces that not only function well for the individuals using them, but also conveys their nature and personality. Building those relationships, and getting to know my clients, is one of my favorite parts of the entire design process. With more than a decade of experience in the home design field, I continue to help clients enhance their own surroundings, simply express their personality, and bring them more joy in their home.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, and you don't know where to begin?
When it comes to the design of your home there are so many items that need to be considered, researched and selected. Specifying interior and exterior selections on any size project is an area where most people begin to question their judgment, or feel overwhelmed by the vast array of products, finishes, and colors to choose from. This is where my insight, guidance, and smile can alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that you may be feeling. It does not have to be complicated, and can be quite fun. Over the years I have gained knowledge while working with vendors of all areas in design. I have developed connections with companies and trades people that will help simplify the process.
Do you want a bit of a change, but you just don’t have the time?
Being a married mother of two teenage girls I can absolutely relate. Helping clients solve their home design dilemmas is what I am passionate about. I am easy to work with in part because I have a flexible schedule and I am willing to work with yours. I will find solutions for you that will convey your vision and suit your lifestyle.
Do you want a fresh, new look and you are on a limited budget?
Good design does not have to come with a high price tag. My past projects have ranged from starter home budgets to dream home budgets, and gained me the knowledge to create beautiful spaces, while keeping every client's budget in mind. Finding an inventive way to create the look you desire on a small budget is a challenge that I enthusiastically take on.
