We hear you, my friend. Addressing every aspect of your space can be overwhelming and too large of a single investment to get the quality you want and deserve.

That’s why we created our Signature 4 Stage Decorating services. You have the flexibility to begin at the Stage that’s right for you, invest exactly how much you want to, and journey toward your forever home at your pace.

You’ll love your destination, but your journey will be pretty spectacular, too!

Stage 1:
Plan – Furniture Layout & Style Goals

If you’ve been struggling with where to place your furniture or unsure what size furniture to buy you aren’t alone.

Let’s do this step together to avoid expensive furniture purchasing mistakes that don’t fit your room or lifestyle. We’ll even figure out where to place your own furniture in awkwardly shaped rooms.
