It’s all about Designer – Client Affinity

Rapport makes the difference in creating your perfect room

When I first met Linda in the store we connected right away. She had told me about a major remodel that her son had completed on her home. She wanted to make sure it was furnished beautifully to complete the look they had worked so hard on.

First visits are often about learning your needs and making sure I can meet your expectations. Frankly, I have to determine if the store and I are a good fit for you.

I went to Linda’s home to measure and gather more information. The home has a beautiful lake view. She wanted a Less is More attitude in the room – keeping the colors fresh and soothing – but focusing on that great view. She already had soft gray walls and white stone on the fireplace

Linda had decided a white curved sofa was what she was after. Being right there, near the water, blue was a natural accent color that will bring the lake into the room. Plus blue is timeless. I think we achieved a very comfortable and inviting setting with a definite Wow factor! This room will brighten your mood even on a cloudy day.


Pieces shown: Norwalk Linkin Angled Sectional, Lily Ottoman, Sally swivel chair and Gala swivel ottoman. Many of the pieces have nailheads that added a nice detail… and a  little bit of bling.
