Who We Are
Interior Decorating and Design
At Design for Conscious Living® we offer a wide range of services under the umbrella of interior decorating and design. One or more of these services may apply to your particular project; and regardless of whether you are looking for a simple one time consultation, or assistance with a complete design and installation, we are happy to assist you. Please let us know how we may serve you best.
Styling and Seasonal Decorating
Think of styling as a mini facelift or a temporary change to your décor. It may involve things like minor decluttering and reorganization, adding accessories and plants that compliment a space, decorating for the holiday season, or designing a table setting to wow your dinner guests. Where decorating and design tend to focus on changes to a space that are long term/permanent, styling is transient.
Landscape Decorating and Design
With a little work, your home property would be the perfect place to spend more time outdoors, so what is stopping you? Does the word overwhelm come to mind? Designing outdoor garden rooms, property landscaping, choosing garden bed plants, or installing a gorgeous planter on your front step; these are just a few of the things we specialize in. Let us help turn your overwhelm into excitement.
