Business Description
We design based around our clients needs & tastes in a collaborative process. This way the process is open and the clients are involved and understand how we work and why we are making the decisions we are making.

As a designer, I believe in "sensible luxe" . By that I don't mean you get a luxury look without spending quality money-
Sensible Luxe is a look that uses a combination of fabrics and finishes that are smarter and wear longer with with kids, and pets (which I have) without compromising the look of sophisticated design.

For instance I designed a banquet in Lincoln Park thats high end but the seating is all easily wiped off because its constructed of a high tech fabric made out of nylon and chairs in fresh looking modern vinyls (which have advanced) so it's basically bullet proof for the kids. The home looks lovely for longer. Even the mural painting has a finish on it that is water and stain resistant.

As you can see from the Before & After's on my houzz page,
our specialty is improving existing envelopes and all the daunting details
that renovations and construction take-we are experts at coordinating.

The envelope of the house absolutely works hand in hand with the new furnishings, fabrics, and case goods. So most projects typically have some perimeter work. This is first and then furnishings, drapery/window treatments, rugs, fabrics follow.

Another one for charcoal. I prefer to add pops of color with plantings and beautiful containers/urns, etc.

I like these colors on this brick home:
