Why Hire an Interior Design Professional
A good interior design should be a reflection of your personality, not look like a furniture showroom unless, of course, that is the way you wish to live! Reasons to talk to me:
1. I will help you with a plan for a vision for your room
a. by formulating an original design with you specifically in mind
b. by helping you achieve your vision (a designer may help you see your collections in a new light)
c. and you may save money by making good choices
2. To improve the functionality of the room
3. To act as a mediator in deciding what to use and what to eliminate
I have been in the interior design business for over 30 years. While I am dating myself, I can bring a vision to your project that is long-range and benefits from experience. I realize that interior design is certainly a reflection of our times, yet I particularly think good design lasts. I am a member of The Dayton Society of Interior Designers (DSID) and an Allied Member of A.S.I.D. (American Society of Interior Designers).

Wallpaper adds warmth to a room as no other treatment can.
