is this you?

You’d love to talk to a designer…but you don’t want to spend a fortune just to solve a few decorating problems.

You want to paint...but don’t know how to select colors you love that are also fool-proof.

Your home needs an overhaul but you feel overwhelmed; you don’t know what’s most important or what to do first.

You need new furniture…but your concern is that  “reasonably priced high quality ” is an oxymoron.

You’re happy with the furnishing you already have…but you would love to know how to locate them to better advantage.


Home is where the heart is…

I work with busy people like you, who want their homes pulled together to look great and be comfortable.

They know what they like but don’t have time or know where to start.

What separates my service from other designers is that I understand how to use the logic of design with any style or no style at all.

It’s not about my style, but your style defined and made even better.

In short, I can help you, help yourself to a beautiful home.

By the hour…no required service commitment….

Why Is Home Design Important?

Home means different things to different people, but mostly, at the beginning and the end of each day, it’s our private oasis…even if it happens to be a hotel room.

It’s a matter of well being, well lived…
The best home design creates rooms that speak, in a beautifully personal way, to those who live in them.

This much I know is true: There is magic in the logic of design.

I’ve been happily helping Design Civilians (that would probably be you) for over 20 years.

I would love to help you, help yourself to a more beautiful home.

By the way, I’ve been writing about home design logic for roughly 10 years. Several of the articles presented are based on earlier published work. 

Writing has given me a language to describe why and how to make smart choices, even if the only choice is the  lesser of two evils.
