For the D.I.Y. Person: "Pick Mary's Brains"

Mary been doing design work for homes for so long there's no way to meet with you and not offer countless ideas.

She will give you as many ideas as you can handle in up to two hours. It's up to you to execute, implement and make it happen. Cost: Flat fee for consultation. Please contact us for more details.

Buying/Purchasing Service

Redefine Your Space: Refresh! Rethink! Revitalize!

Are you trying to sell your home, or do you just want to refresh your home? Have your children grown up, and are you now ready to make your home your own? Mary will review your existing furnishings, accessories and artwork, and then, through careful editing and placement, give new life to your existing home using what you already own. She will also de-clutter as needed. (What treasures are hidden away in your closets just waiting to be used again?) This may include making your home more accessible for aging gracefully and with dignity in your home. (Such improvements might include increasing lighting and adding non-skid floor coverings, grab-bars and comfort height toilets.) Cost: Fees are based on whole- or half-day rates. Please contact us for more details.

Micro-Decorating: One Room Decorating with Consultation

Added by popular demand! Mary visits your home twice: First, to review the room you have in question. Second, to present a design plan to you. In between, she will create a plan for you, complete with floor plans, furniture suggestions and color recommendations, based on your existing situation, as well as your preferences and desires. Cost: Flat fee based on room size and requirements. Please contact us for more details.
