We view each project as a special collaboration between the design team and the clients, always striving to ensure that both the process and the end result exceed our clients’ expectations

Christopher’s success can be attributed to his innate ability to channel a client’s unique style and transform their dreams into reality. Says Christopher, “I ask my clients to conjure up three words to describe the feeling they want their home to convey, and from that I begin to form a vision of what their home should look like. Together, we refine that vision into a space that feels like home.”

Our clients frequently ask us to bring our unique design sensibility to all aspects of the project. Our firm’s capabilities include:

-       Full-service interior design
-       New construction and complete remodels
-       Architectural plans: from concept schematics to full permit sets
-       Exterior paint color consultation
-       Landscape design
-       Hard surface and materials selection
-       Project management
-       Logo design and branding for commercial projects

Of course, we value the collaboration process and frequently work with other building professionals as part of a project team. Working with your architect, landscape designer, general contractor, and other professionals, we can help to ensure that all aspects of the design flow together seamlessly.
