Using the furnishings you already own, I will rearrange, edit, and “shop” from your other rooms and storage areas to breathe new life into your home. Room restyling is a great way to give a new look and feel to your home without spending a lot on new furniture or accessories. I will also leave you with some ideas for a few new accessories or pieces to purchase in the future.
Interior and Exterior Color Consultations
One of my most popular consultations is helping choose interior and exterior paint colors. It can be so overwhelming to choose even one color from among the hundreds of paint swatches in the home improvement stores! I have a great instinct for color, and I keep up on the latest trends in home color palettes. Choosing the right colors for your home is one of the most important aspects of good design.
Custom Window Treatments, Blinds, Bedding and Wallcoverings
I have many years of experience in designing custom fabric window treatments for a range of window types, especially “problem windows.” I work with the finest workrooms in Kansas City to design and make bedding and decorative pillows to personalize your home and give it that uniquely custom look. I also measure and source custom blinds and shades. And, have you heard? Wallpaper is BACK! We can select from hundreds of designer wallcoverings to add wonderful personality to your home.
Space Planning including Furniture Placement
Space planning is both art and science. I will help you make the most of each room’s furniture placement and traffic flow. Furniture placement is exceptionally important to making a home function well and be livable for you and your family.
I will consult with you in your home, then go shopping to find the perfect art, lighting, area rugs, and other accessories to complement your décor. We can shop together, or I can shop alone for items for you to approve.
Home staging can make all the difference in setting your home apart in the crowded real estate market. Home staging has been shown to help homes sell faster, and for closer to the asking price than homes that have not been professionally staged. I will consult with you in your home and offer ideas, as well as assistance in furniture arrangement, “editing” belongings, paint colors, etc. to prepare your home to be sold quickly.
Custom Furniture Orders
Big box furniture stores and online catalogs are great for some furniture purchases. But to find great quality, custom furniture, with absolutely everything you want—from the perfect color fabric, to down or down-wrapped cushions , to contrasting trim, and designer details, I recommend ordering custom furniture pieces from trusted furniture manufacturers. I partner with Kansas City’s best design showrooms to offer you custom furniture for a range of decorating budgets.
Emily also works with architects/builders in the custom interior design of new homes and home remodels.
