Interior Design Services

Jewelry Making is my hobby, Interior Design is my life.  I graduated with a degree in Interior design from the Purdue School of Technology in Indianapolis.  I do my design work out of my home. I have everything I need from paint samples to AutoCad and other design programs on the computer.  
 
I have designed my sisters addition to her existing home.  We added 2 bedrooms with walk-in closets (for teenage girls), a 2 1/2 car garage and a foyer area with large closet when you enter from the garage.  I did the construction documents, floor plan & electrical plan.
 
I have had several clients that needed help with color choices for their homes.  I have helped with that, then helped with choosing just the right draperies (wheather store bought or custom made), to picking out just the right furniture (this would include the right size, fabric and color). 
 
I have helped a client stage their house to sell.  This is an $800,000 plus home.  They got an offer w/in 4 weeks of putting it on the market. Unfortunetly, the buyers backed out the day of closing.  It is amazing what a little color can do for a home. In this case, it gave these rooms the WOW factor we were looking for.
Below I will post pictures of the foyer, dining room and kitchen.  The before;  just imagine all white walls, trim, base boards.  Everything was white.    Most of the pictures were taken after the clients moved out, so things may seem a little bare.

I did all the painting myself, and also did one wall and the bathroom in the upstairs playroom.  There was a lot of taping off to do, I really think that took just as long as the painting did.  The end result was worth it.  I still wish the clients did not have to move and sell this home, I would have loved to done more; at least that was our initial plan. 
 
If anyone is interested in any of my services, please contact me at the email address under contacts.  I have an electronic portfolio or a hard copy portfolio for anyone to see.  I am looking to start expanding and taking on more clients as my child is now in school all day, it is time for me to get back working full-time.
 
Just remember, your home says a lot about you.  Don't let it say you are a dreary person, let it say you are a fun, lively, vibrant person who loves life.  Shoot me an email if you are tired of living in your home, or you need a change.  Maybe you want to redo your kitchen, is it outdated, not big enough, I can help.  I was born to do kitchen design.  I did receive a 2nd place award in the NKBA state of Indiana student competition in 2005.  I love kitchens and baths.  Let me help you with yours. 
 
 

In this room we started with solid white walls.  The client had this existing new furniture, so I designed the room around it.  The walls are actually faux painted with a cream and a yellow sponged on.  We then added crown molding  and accessories.  This room is just a sitting room when you enter the front door.  It connects to the dining room and then kitchen. 

 

 
 I designed and implemented this living room for a client.  I got to pick out everything from floors, rug, furniture, window treatments, art, and paint. I installed the floors, blinds, drapes, art, painted walls, and put together any furniture that came disassembled.  I had a lot of fun with this client as I had full control. He did not want to make any decisions, or do any shopping.  All he did was pay for everything.  This client is a single male in his late 30's.  I absolutely love this room.  I also did his office and dining room.
   
   
   
 
 
 
 

 

 

 I painted this contemporary style canvas painting in the colors that we have in that room and throughout our house. 

I can design one for your home in the colors you have and in a different pattern and design.
