Let me help you make your house your home.
From full construction to one room edits, I can help conceptualize, source, specify and oversee installation of everything from the wood trim and tile, or "hard finishes", and lighting, paint, flooring...to furniture, wallpaper, bed linens, pillows and artwork.
Maybe you are just looking for some ideas for when you are ready to remodel or refresh. I can meet for a walk-thru of your home and give you an experts opinion on potential upgrades for resell or simpler surface and decorative updates to help enliven your space for a fresh interior.
No matter your needs, I am willing and able to accommodate the scope of your project. I'll take the time to listen and feel out who you are in your home to help you make the right choices and spend your money wisely.
I can work remotely for you! I have completed many remote design projects (including full bathrooms) and these days, with skype and facetime, it's really quite doable to work on many different kinds of things. From review of architectural plans to real-time rooms, off-site work is doable, affordable and a great way to get extra eyes on your project.

Design Idea Consult Walk-Thru, Flat Rate:
$295 for 3 hour meeting on site to walk your space together, review interiors, hear your wishes, etc.
I walk the house for a bit and then present ideas, on the spot, for changes and updates based upon what I hear you are looking for. For some, this may be actual physical changes to interior floor plan for longer term upgrades. For others, it may be just some fresh eyes on what needs to go and what should stay, what could use some updating. This is like a "mini design" session!
I follow-up your Walk-Thru with an email of bullet points of what I see for your spaces, vendor +/or product links, and images of some design ideas I referenced and think you should consider.
If you really like the results, we could flesh out a larger design plan + project thereafter.
Available for remote consult walk-thrus too!
From Wausau, WI:
"Allie has been great to work with! I live quite a distance from her, and she managed the design work remotely with absolute patience and creativity. My husband and I are newlyweds, and Allie helped us navigate the tricky process of deciding what to keep and what to discard in order to create a cohesive style that both my husband and I would feel at home with. Taking into account our existing belongings and styles, she also encouraged us to step outside our comfort zone a bit and with fantastic results. She provided help with everything from choosing paint colors and silverware to designing built-in bookcases and floor plans. Allie is personable, professional, and absolutely skilled in helping create a home that reflects your style and needs."
From New York, NY:
“I have worked with Allie twice and both times were amazing. We worked together on a small design project for my first apartment in SF and later on a complete gut remodel of my NYC apartment and the results were nothing short of simply amazing. It's rare to look around an apartment and love every choice made from kitchen cabinets, tiles, custom floor stain, lighting fixtures and furniture. I would highly recommend Allie!”
From San Francisco, CA:
“Allie has an incredible eye for patterns and has helped pull together several rooms for us, from designing rooms from scratch (tile, paint, fixtures) to fixing smaller design challenges (kids playroom). What I really like is that Allie takes the time to let my style shine through, so each room fits us. We've worked near and long distance with her. She is also very patient with indecisive clients!”
Live a colorful life.
