Design Services Overview

This two-hour consultation is the perfect way to get expert advice on your decorating or renovation project. For a flat fee, we arrive at your home ready to work. We kick off every project, large or small, with this initial consultation.

Our design consulting services are perfect for the homeowner who has a strong sense of what she wants for her home and plans to shop for and implement her project on her own. She just needs a second opinion on some of her choices or someone to talk her through some of the bigger decisions and complicated details. When we serve as a consultant, the client is taking the lead, and we are providing backup and support.

Design consulting is available in prepaid blocks of time. When you purchase a larger block of time, you can save on the hourly rate.

Available to Central Iowa residents only.

Our favorite projects are new construction homes because we love being involved in the design process from the very beginning all the way through to the finishing touches. It’s never too early to engage an interior designer in the process of building your home. We bring our expertise and a fresh perspective, working with you and your team to create and execute on a vision for your home.

More and more of our clients are choosing major remodels over new construction. If you love your home’s lot and location but aren’t happy with it’s layout and/or finishes, then maybe a whole home or partial remodel is the way to go. We utilize the very latest technology to measure your home and model it in three dimensions so you can easily visualize its true potential.

Whether you’re local to Iowa or thousands of miles away, we can help you create the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams. We’ve designed kitchens from California to Philadelphia to a remote island off the coast of Vancouver. We offer several packages, including one just for IKEA cabinets, that you can purchase on their own or combine for a complete design experience.

Complete Services Menu

In addition to the options above, we also offer a full menu of interior design services that can be completely customized to your individual needs. After the initial consultation, we will create a very specific proposal for your design project, which may incorporate one or more of the following elements:

Finish selections

We carefully consider the design concept, architecture of your space, and any existing elements to provide suggestions for flooring, tile, paint colors, wallpaper, and other interior finishes. We filter through the myriad of product on the market and bring only the very best options to you for the final approval.

Lighting

An often overlooked or under-appreciated design element, lighting is the jewelry of the room. We thoughtfully consider style, scale, and lighting output to make recommendations for decorative fixtures and architectural lighting. We will meet with your electrician on site to develop an appropriate lighting solution for your space.

Window Treatements

Much like lighting, window treatments are sometimes an afterthought when designing a room. We consider window treatments to be a major element of your space. They can provide light control and acoustical management, and they should look beautiful as well! We have access to a number of custom window treatment options at all price points, including woven wood shades, roller shades, fabric shades, custom draperies, and motorized options.

Art & Accessories

The finishing touches make a room really come to life. If your current home feels unfinished or under-decorated, the right accessories and artwork can make a huge difference. We can source accessories like ceramics, decorative objects, and pillows from a variety of sources and love incorporating vintage and handmade elements into our designs. There are many options for artwork at a variety of price points. There is no need to suffer from bare walls!

Purchasing & Installation

Let us take care of all the tedious ordering, delivery coordination, and details while you sit back and relax. Whether you’re a busy professional or stay-at-home mom with a hectic schedule, your time is too valuable to sit around waiting for delivery trucks that never show up. When you hire us, we take over all of the pricing, ordering, delivery, and installation, right down to the felt pads under the furniture legs and the artwork on the walls.
