About me

To paraphrase a Decorating Den ad from the ’90s, “If a designer tells you to throw everything out, start by throwing out the designer.”  Since 1995, I’ve been serving Southern Illinois’ decorating needs and maintaining a business philosophy of providing excellent design service, on projects large and small, tailored to my client’s needs and wants.

I offer a huge product assortment!  Window treatments, bedding ensembles, carpets, area rugs, wall covering, accessories, lighting, upholstered furniture and case good furniture – I literally have it all!  I know that with such a wide assortment of samples, we’re sure to find YOUR perfect design solution.

In addition to the many sales awards I have received through the years, I have also been awarded the Positive Thinker Award for my up beat attitude and sincere character.  I am a Decorating Den Certified Decorator (DDCD), which is the highest educational achievement level in the Decorating Den organization.  In 2002, I was awarded first place in the International Dream Room Commercial category (see portfolio) and second place for overall first time participant.  My work has been published several times in The Southern Illinoisan and in a national book, “Decorating Kids’ Rooms,” by Mary Wynn Ryan (see photo).

I keep up with current design and product trends by touring manufacturer showrooms, factories, and show houses and by attending market at High Point, North Carolina, the international home furnishings authority.

If you’re looking for a decorator, who is easy to work with, works within your budget, decorates around your lifestyle, expands upon your ideas and makes decorating a fun experience, please give me a call.

I look forward to working with you on your next design project!
