What sets me apart –

  • I am your professional conduit to your perfect kitchen – designing for you; interpreting your ideas and needs to a beautiful, ideally-working kitchen for you and your family. 

What you can expect –

  • I will meet with you at your home or my Studio to discuss the project – remodeling or new construction, at that time measuring and/or discussing your needs and style opinions, working out a schedule to meet and show you design solutions and itemized budget choices.  With choices clearly defined, you can decide to continue to work with me to complete the project, wait to consider other offers, put the work on hold, or close our relationship.  NO plans or drawings will be left with the client.
  • A signed contract or design agreement is necessary to continue work with a clear budget established, and further design work and style choices can progress until all final details are complete.

  • Supervision – attention to details, coordinating with client and craftsmen, scheduling work and communicating with trades, respecting homeowners property and time, job site visitation and inspection on a regular basis, completing the project to homeowners’ satisfaction.
