Valerie's Design Philosophy
"Let's face it, a lot of people have a preconceived notion of the "Diva Designer" who comes in and says "Everything must go!" That would scare anyone away from using a designer including me! The joy that I get out of being a designer is when my client is happy because I took into consideration everything from the family photos to the cherished treasures passed down thru generations. I incorporate the things you love with new design elements that seamlessly blend everything together to give you a fresh look. It is important that your personality be present in the designs I create.
When we meet, I want to get to know you, your family, your pets, hobbies and your lifestyle. I want you to tell me your likes and dislikes and your goals and vision for your space. If you don't have one, that's OK too! I want to show you design possibilities that you may have never considered before. It is my job to get to know you so I can help create a design that when you walk into a room you get that feeling that "You Know You Are Home." I don't create a cookie cutter style where one size fits all. You are unique and your design should be too!"
