Frequently Asked Questions
Which are the specialty areas that Timeless Interiors works in?
I help my clients design a home that is comfortable and aligns with their busy lifestyles. I mostly work in residential homes where kids and dogs and pets co-exist. Mostly, I enjoy working one on one with my clients to help them solve an immediate design dilemma that can be solved with simply a new perspective and design knowledge. I also enjoy helping clients with the overwhelming task of planning a future renovation, a move or figuring out what to do next after a move into a new home.
How is Timeless Interiors different from other interior designers?
I get it, I get life. I get that laundry and messes happen. Design style doesn't have to be sacrificed for having a busy life. Also, having grown up here in Connecticut, I value that New England is rich in tradition and I appreciate classic design and architecture. I understand the delicate nature of historic structures and the balance of preservation and modern living.
Does Timeless Interiors works with smaller non-renovation projects?
Yes! All the time. I can help with staging, re-design, using what you already own, shopping services, color consulting or space planning. In fact, I offer a Designer for a Day package where we can design an entire room in one day! Take a look at my Services page to see what I offer. Feel free to send me an email or book a 30 min discovery call to see if we are the right fit for each other.
