Your Trusted Source of Design Inspiration

Blooms & Rooms can transform your garden beds or your rooms into beautiful and inspiring spaces.  I'll create harmony and balance in your space (and in your life!) by mixing designs, materials, textures and colors to create a true sense of what it really means for you to be home.

With my One-Day Room Makeover or Staging of your Home for Sale,
I work with what you already have, or with newly purchased objets d'art and furnishings, to inject beauty and warmth into your space reflecting your individuality and style, and all in just a few hours!

I combine a love of beautiful living with a passion for creative design, exceptional service, functional success, and budget and schedule control. 

Let Blooms & Rooms help you live beautifully each day ~ because I truly believe you should love the way you live!

The Room Makeover Experience:

As I tell potential ReDesign clients, "I'm your 'every-day' person's decorator.  Give me $1,000 and I'll make it look like we've spent $5,000!"
I stretch my client's decorating dollar by first repurposing items they currently own in a unique and creative way.

I then head out to do a little bargain shopping.  By selecting my room makeover items from TJ Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, Target, Pier 1 (and of course a dash of Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and Crate&Barrel get thrown into the design mix), I'm able to create a room that is warm, inviting and full of design inspiration that 'looks' expensive but really isn't.

With my budget-conscious design approach and a little resourceful shopping,
 I believe you truly don't have to spend a lot to get a lot.  And I believe
 that we all deserve to be surrounded by beauty!

WHAT IS INTERIOR REDESIGN?

Interior ReDesign is like a "personal makeover" for your home.
This unique process of rearranging a room's existing contents works whether your furnishings are old or new, if you have a little
 or a lot, all one style or an eclectic mix.

What you currently own may hold the key to
 an entirely new decorating theme!

I work with what you already have to revitalize your room and
create beautiful spaces that offer comfort and serenity and express your personal flair...all without having to purchase anything new
 and completed in just one day!


WHAT IS REAL ESTATE STAGING?

Real Estate Staging is a new concept incorporating decorating,
 un-decorating, and consolidation.  It's accomplished through a
 combination of home "editing", organizing and the rearrangement
 of furnishings, artwork and accessories.  

The ultimate goal of "staging" is to get your home into showcase condition so that it sells at its best possible price
 in the shortest possible time!


A Staged Home 1) creates a positive first impression in the new home buyer's mind, 2) will stand out from other properties in the same price range, 3) helps obtain the best possible selling price...a well-presented property is often perceived as being well maintained, and 4) tends to sell faster in a slow market and for more in an active market.
