Did you know the role of an “Interior Designer” can be very different than the role of an “Interior Decorator”?
All designers can take on the role of a decorator and work very successfully on your behalf. However, we can offer so much more for you and well before the decorating even begins. We bring licensed experience with systemized planning, demo, drywall, electrical, plumbing, reviewing blueprints with our trades. We bring in architects, engineers, CAD technicians and specialists when needed. Then we introduce the final selections and decorating of furniture, fabrics, color to the bones of that beautiful to-be-completed structure called “home”.
