WHO IS OUR DESIGN EXPERIENCE FOR?

We keep our design services flexible to meet all our clients’ various working preferences. Some folks have smaller projects in mind, or plan to tackle one area of their home at a time. Others may need a quick turn-around in preparation for a special event or for listing their home. Many home owners prefer to be hands-on. And then some are eager to have us design every space and select every fixture, finish, and furnishing. We’ll meet you where you are.

Our super-power is transforming ho-hum into brilliantly efficient and joyful.  We pour our industry knowledge and creativity energy into the best design for you and your family.  We don’t project manage, but we can introduce you to some great people who do. And, we can be available during your project implementation to clarify and problem-solve right along side you and your contractor.

A SAFE AND HEALTHY HOME

We shape your home for Living In Place.  It’s a complete approach to making your home accessible, comfortable, and safe for you and loved ones of all abilities and ages.  So, no matter what life tosses your way, your home always remains home.

Instead of throwing away and contributing to landfill, we look for opportunities to repurpose. And, we go the extra distance to furnish and finish with natural, local, handcrafted, vintage, and long-lasting goods.

We ensure your home is well connected to nature through organic shapes, natural elements, daylighting, and authentic materials.  All people have a strong positive response to natural environments. Our heart rate slows. Anxiety levels drop. We become more creative, calmer, and happier.

We focus on the responsible use of materials. We’re concerned about chemicals that pose harm to human health and our planet, so we work hard to keep antimicrobials, PVCs, flame retardants, repellents, and VOCs out of your home design.
