Some rooms are like blank canvases. Others are works in progress. I am able to see the potential in wherever you are in creating your masterpiece and can help you see it too.
Maybe you have ideas, but you just don't know exactly how to get them done. I do. Full of know-how and resources, I love to make your visions
come to life.
There's so much that can be done with a little paint, a refreshed logo applied to the window, and a sign that captures the playfulness of a brand. This was a much different looking building before this redesign. The entire entrance was redesigned and the facade got some sophistication to go with the store's fun spirit.
Sometimes, you aren't satisfied with an office that looks like an office. You want something bold and fresh, something cozy and homey. You want warmth and fun colors, even if your office is made of cold brick and is within an industrial looking space. From planning to placement, Stephanie can make it happen.
Anyone can paint or order wall graphics, but not everyone can hear a client say, "We'd really like to have maybe a boxwood wall or something like that" and make it a reality. These are the sorts of one-of-a-kind accents that make my heart sing. And my client can feel proud knowing their office is a unique experience.
Choosing a new color can be daunting. There are so many variables. Light, trim, furnishings, flooring, the permanence of those same items, the ambiance you're trying to capture, when the room will be used, by whom, and for what .... It's wise to work with a designer who understands color and how it works with all of these variables.
Have a pattern you LOVE? I won't second-guess you because wallpaper has become so versatile, you're not forever bound to the choices you make today. But I will help you locate it, choose a pattern if you need help, know what things to consider for the room, know how much to order, and may even be able to install it for you.
Sometimes the perfect piece of furniture doesn't exist. Sometimes you need some built-ins that aren't there. Or maybe you need some custom trim-work or desire a room full of wainscoting. I can help you dream it, plan it, and can call in an amazing woodworking partner to make your wishes come true.
Nobody wants their home or office to stagnate, but it can be daunting to know how to make it look fresh without looking like it came straight from a box store. You want something personal but stylish. New, but not too trendy. Not too expensive but not cheap-looking. Maybe even something custom. Don't worry. I can help.
For those of us in colder climates, patio & deck season is short-lived. I believe in making the most of it, wherever you live. Being outdoors should be as comfortable and relaxing as being indoors. From eating to lounging, we love to create spaces where you can truly LIVE and relax. I just can't control mosquitoes.
Sure, I can do the usual trees and garlands, but I also love to rethink holiday decor altogether and focus on the beauty of the season. Who needs a bunch of flashing lights and motion-activated sounds when you can have truly personal touches to evoke a sense of nostalgia and truly make everyone feel like they're home for the holidays?
"A lifelong do-it-herselfer, I watched my grandmother and mother both tackle projects they got tired of waiting for their husbands to do. When I was a teenager, I spent my weekends rearranging and redecorating my grandmother's apartment while my friends were at parties. I loved to constantly make things pretty for her.
Later, when I became a member of the media and simultaneously bought a 100+ year old house, I had an opportunity to write my own columns about doing improvements. I loved empowering other women to do the same, but later discovered that my style was something not as easy to teach so I started my own design-focused home improvement business. Many of those clients were fellow designers who needed someone to execute their vision for their home or office – or wanted to collaborate with the person who could make it a reality. Listening to how people talk about how they long to experience their spaces is when I see them radiate with hope. To be able to help my community achieve the home or workplace of their dreams is fulfilling like nothing else."
