We are interior designers who pride ourselves on our ability to work fluently in a range of aesthetics. We engage our clients in the process to whatever extent they prefer, and genuinely enjoy collaboration.  We handle new-builds and large scale renovations, as well as room-by-room refreshers. 

Our team is based outside of Boston in MetroWest and outside of Denver in the mountains.  Our work extends to lake homes in New Hampshire, beach homes on Cape Cod, city apartments and Colorado mountain retreats.   We enjoy the challenge of new geographical locations and are set-up to handle homes wherever the destination may be!

Since transitioning to designing  professionally, her projects have included kitchen and bath renovations and full home redecorating.
