With a background in graphic design and experience in creating styled spaces featured in publications like Better Homes & Gardens, Good Housekeeping, HGTV magazine and more, I’ve grown my studio to include interior design services because I understand what it takes to create a layered home that not only expresses your individuality but also functions to the best of its ability.
I manage every project from initial conception all the way to magazine-ready completion. That means I handle all your ordering, deliveries, tradespeople (wallpaper, anyone?), warehousing the items until install, and more.
Every project’s end goal is for the clients to walk in the door and feel instantly thrilled with the final reveal.

The design process is about building a framework to set the client’s expectations on how a vision becomes a reality. After discussing my contract, the overall budget, needs, aesthetic and timeframe, I go to work to create a distinct, custom floorplan based on our conversations. All approvals, payments, etc. are run through my online portal so you can access them at any time.

Without inspiration, there is no creation. I love clients who know their style, but I also love helping others nail down exactly what it is they want their homes to feel like at the end of the day. And with my wealth of design resources from around the globe, not to mention an obsession for finding the perfect finishing touch, the result will be worth the wait.

With a solid floorplan in place based on each individual space’s needs, I meld form & function to create our vision moving forward. I handle all the minutiae of ordering, shipment, warehousing and delivery so you don’t have to. Allow us to take over the details so you can avoid the headache.

And the finished product? It’s always worth the wait. Inspiration plus function with a dash of individuality equals timeless style. Because when you surround yourself with things that you love, you’ll never get sick of it.

Interior designers are able to provide a wealth of time and cost-cutting benefits to clients in addition to their particular stylistic outlook. I’m usually able to pass along discounts of up to 30% off traditional retail pricing to my clients.
But beyond the mere savings, I’m also providing the benefit of being a sounding board. Most people are afraid of making mistakes when it comes to designing their homes. Buying furniture is expensive, no matter what your budget is. The more I can help you feel confident in your purchasing decisions, the better I’ve done my job. Consider me your design therapist.
But all of this hinges on trust. I can make your space beautiful and it’s also my job to push you aesthetically — think outside the box, if you will.
This depends on the scope of the project and what is purchased. Occasionally there are delays caused by weather, vendor vacations, factory errors, and other unpredictable influences, that are out of my control. The client as well as all professionals hired to work on the project are expected to not cause unreasonable delays in the project.
That being said, a complete room design will mostly likely take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks from approval of the initial concept to final installation of the room. My best advice is to be patient and remember that the final product is always worth the wait. It’s not advisable to attempt room redos a month out from an anticipated occasion such as party or holiday season.
I’m currently accepting new clients in Oklahoma City and Carlton Landing for 2020. Email me to reserve your spot.
Consultations are $250; you receive up to two hours of my time including an on-site visit and a follow-up email to outline the ideas we discussed. Please note that no products, floor plans, specific paint colors or other recommendations will be provided in this particular consult.
My hourly rate is $125 an hour and is billed on a monthly basis. Pricing on individual items is usually less than retail, but it depends on the source. Hourly services can be capped, but there is a minimum of 10 hours per complete room design to get the best possible results and allow for any unforeseen issues.
I do my best to give you a full cost outlook of each item, but additional costs such as storage, shipping, installation, or unexpected labor do occasionally happen.
Not at this time. Stay tuned! I am happy to travel; additional fees are incurred.
I hate to say it, but probably not. If you want stark, achromatic rooms, I’m probably not your girl.
All budgets are entirely relative. I’m happy to work with any budget; to maintain realistic expectations, however, expect that most living room budgets hover around $20,000 for complete room transformations.
Full of personality, color & style
Life’s too short to wait around on the kids to grow up before you can have a beautiful home. I’ve got a wealth of kid, pet and life-proof solutions to help you get the look you want now.
