Decorating your Home with Plants

A lot of our design work revolves around renovation so I don’t discuss decorating a lot.  We have some full-service installations we’re planning and I thought this was a good opportunity to share a design tip – decorating your home with plants!

Cozy Bedroom Decorating Tips

Cozy Vermont Bedroom with chair and ottoman and faux fur

It’s snowing!!  Is there a better way to spend a snowy, Sunday morning than by snuggling in bed with the dog and a cup of coffee? We spend a third of our lives sleeping and yet bedrooms are often the last room that people decorate.  I challenge you to take a moment to assess your […]

Interior Design Inspired by Nature: Biophilic Design

Mountain Vacation Home Douglas Fir Wood with Vermont Slate and Hubbardton Forge Light

Vermonters often say, “We were green before it was cool.” As a designer based in Vermont, I will one day say, “I was a biophilic designer before it was cool.” Biophilic design simply means it’s inspired by nature.  Classic biophilic elements are inspired by nature’s inherent beauty and serenity.

How to Prepare for your Renovation or New Construction Project

When it comes to construction projects, last-minute decisions can be a common source of stress and delays.

Pillows on cozy sofa with a lot of texture

I first began working with my Saddle Ridge clients in 2016 when they hired me to design their garconniere (aka man cave.)  Over the years, we’ve worked on a variety of their projects and when they contacted me to help them with an addition over their garage I said HECK YES! My clients collaborated with […]

No one likes surprises when it comes to money. Working within our clients’ budgets is a fundamental part of what we do.  We are the stewards of our clients’ budgets because we aren’t just their partner – we’re their advocate and ally.  It’s important to have a realistic understanding of what it will cost to […]

Unless you’re an interior designer, no one thinks about countertops unless they’re in the midst of remodeling a kitchen or bath. Even fewer people know what to expect when visiting a slab yard.
