Eileen creates visually pleasing spaces that reflect your lifestyle. It's your dream and her job to make that dream a reality!

Initial meetings with Eileen are spent getting to know the client before the design process begins. Through careful listening, she learns their likes and dislikes, dreams and desires, and how they want their space to be designed. Then she continues to work closely with her clients, making them an interactive part of the process while guiding them to ensure that they remain on task, on budget, and on time.

Eileen’s mission is to give her clientele the home of their dreams!

Her focus is to provide you with the most suitable products for your home. A solid understanding of materials helps to make informed decisions when choosing product for a specific project. Eileen will order the products, manage the deliveries, be on-site to manage installations and see to it that the project runs smoothly while the client may go about their lives.


Years of education and experience gives her a comprehensive knowledge of space planning, layout, scale, material and fabric, and how each pertains to design and construction. Practical experience enables her to give her clientele the knowledge and expertise that one looks for and deserves in a design professional.
