Makeover in a Day

How would you like to transform your home -- in a day!?!

You can have your own HGTV experience, with your own personal designer. I plan and design to suit your family's needs and lifestyle. No two homes are alike.

Have you tried to do everything you've seen on Pinterest or HGTV, but can't get the same results? Don't know what's "off?" I've had more than twenty years' experience, and have a deeply embedded instinct for what needs to happen to make a room shine, and reflect the personality of the people who live there. 

Here's how your Makeover works: We'll set an initial meeting to assess needs and budget, then I go to work to collect all of the best accessories, lighting, artwork, rugs, pillows, window treatments, etc. to makeover your home in a day. You'll plan a little getaway (massage, pedicure, lunch with friends?) while my assistant and I work our magic. You'll come home to your own "reveal," with the camera rolling to document it all.

Typical clients plan on 2-3 rooms for their Makeover Day (kitchen, family room, dining). I come with my car packed (planning any shipments in advance -- but no peeking!). Total time in your home to set up: 4-6 hours. You have 2-3 days to live with everything, and decide if you want to send anything back (no one ever seems to want to). Typical costs: $3,000-$8,000, including all accessories, design time, shopping, and set up. This plan assumes that we are working with your own furniture. Other plans include new furnishings in addition to the Makeover.
