THE DESIGN PROCESS

Everyone has inherited furniture, a painting they love or are not ready to start from scratch.  DF Designs wants to know all about them and work to incorporate them in your design.

When we meet, I'll ask you to tell me about your hopes for your home, who do you want to be and how do you want to go in the space.  I'm happy to design an entire house, one special space or help refine your home. Working from my experience and knowledge we will create a beautiful, livable place.

"Being the first time I had worked with an interior designer, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised with how wonderful the process & end result was.  Her taste is beautiful & she suggested lighting & floor plan changes, color pallets & art that I never would have thought of & everything came together to create the calming sophisticated looking retreat I was looking for in a master bedroom. And she was a joy to work with!"

Looking for a full room revamp? We can meet in your home to discuss your current challenges, delve into your hopes for your space, review budget guidelines & chat about how to create your dream room.
