We give you the full benefit of our creative solution-finding expertise.  We inquire deeply to understand what will make you feel joyful in your home.  Then we guide you toward the best decisions for layouts, moods, finishes, fittings, fixtures, and furnishings.  Whether a single room or a whole home re-fresh, kitchen or bathroom renovation, a new home, or a new-to-you home;  we’re your creative, your innovator, your advisor, and your cheerleader from start to finish.



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.

We ensure your home is well connected with 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 do our best to keep antimicrobials, PVCs, flame retardants, repellents, and VOCs out of your home design. Watch the Six Classes Approach to Reducing Chemical Harm videos to learn more.

Instead of needlessly 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.



Our super-power is carving spacious living out of small places and transforming the ho-hum into brilliantly efficient and joyful.  We invest our solution-finding skills and creative talents into designing the best home for you, so we don’t manage projects.  But we can introduce you to great people who do!
