I cannot recommend Steffanie highly enough. Steffanie really takes time to get to know your style and makes every attempt to work with the items you have that you'd still like to use, as well as suggesting new, fun things that accentuate the best parts of your home.
We hired Steffanie to stage our townhome after putting it on the market. She reduced the clutter, had us purchase several inexpensive items and voila! our house never looked better. She also suggested other ideas that literally transformed our space. I know we never would have sold our house in the time that we did if it were not for Steffanie.
Oh my goodness, we absolutely LOVE the house! Each room we walked into just had us amazed again. Thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job! Thank you again, you have made our home a home!!!
Could you hear us squealing from your house?! Steffanie, I cannot believe how fantastic our house looks!!! It's beyond my wildest expectations. How did you make our crappy stuff look so good??Well done, my dear - we are thrilled. Can't wait to hear about paint colors and your other ideas.
Steffanie is helping us decorate our dining room, living room and family room.The project is still in the works but working with her has been delightful. She is professional and very organized. We look forward to doing the rest of the house with her.
Steffanie is professional, is well organized, and has great ideas. She completed several decorating projects for us over the last several years, and we have been pleased with the results.

Steffanie did a fantastic job. She helped with wall colors, window treatments and floor coverings, lighting, furniture and artwork selection. After several discussions, she had a great understanding of the style and look that I was trying to achieve and her selections proved it.
