I have worked with Trish for the past 12 years on many design projects for my home. She helped me design my kitchen 10 years ago and it still looks timeless. Her choice of fabrics are ones that will always have a classic appeal. I have never been disappointed in any of the choices in fabrics and furniture that she chose. I look forward to working with her on a future project.Read More

Trish and Erica did an excellent job helping me layout and furnish my first home. The walked me through the process of sketching out a floor plan, establishing my needs, and creating a budget. They helped me to pick out statement pieces and build matching furniture and accessories around those decisions. Throughout, they offered me a ton of alternatives I wouldn't have otherwise been able to find and brainstormed solutions for challenging areas with me. They worked with me to understand what I wanted in my home and helped me to identify more reasonable or functional alternatives. They were a great sounding board, keeping me from overlooking details I might have forgotten otherwise. They also coordinated all the shipping and ordering, allowing me to travel while all the products were arriving. Working with them was a great experience and I am incredibly happy with the end result.Read More
