I take pride in creating warm, expressive, and functional interiors for my clients who want to utilize my expertise in designing and managing the project for them from start to completion. I collaborate with my clients to create the design vision and then execute and manage everything for my clients. What is everything? A simple breakdown includes:
Evaluate project with client to determine needs, goals, and budget.
Manage timeline and budget.
Measure all areas included in the project.
Handle all coordination with any other parties involved.
Develop conceptual design.
Provide drawings such as detailed plans and room elevations.
Place orders and manage the logistics of deliveries.

What can an Interior Designer do for you?

Most people think interior designers just put furniture in its place and throw pillows around. That is not the case 😂. In today’s changing world, we cannot waste our time or money on meaningless non-functional design. Being a Certified Interior Designer, a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Accessibility Specialist through the state of MN, and a Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer, I am qualified to work in a variety of spaces and will see things you are guaranteed to miss. I am trained to think creatively, spatially, and learn to see an overall picture that you might not be able to see. Thinking outside of the box is what I do on a regular basis both professional and personally.

The CW Design Process

Programming – I meet with you and gather information on “how” your current space is not working. I listen and together we discuss how to design the space to fit your needs. These are some of the task I will perform at our meeting: measure the space, take photos, verify site conditions… I might end up performing more tasks than noted above depending on the size of your project. A letter of agreement (contract) will be provided to you based on the findings from the initial meeting. This agreement will state what I am responsible for and you. It is to hold us both accountable for your project. I want to make sure I am understanding and correctly communicating everything that was discussed at the initial meeting.

Schematic Design – I develop the initial design intent, or concept, on which the entire project will be based.  I create the preliminary space plan, preliminary budget, preliminary furniture layout, preliminary selections, and review those items with the appropriate people.  Again, depending on the size on the project I may perform more tasks than noted above or less.

Design Development – I finalize the floor plan, furniture layouts, and selections for you to review.  I may prepare presentation materials and shop drawings (cabinetry elevations, detail sections) depending on your project.  I will review/finalize all items with you before handing it over to the appropriate people.

Contract Documents – These are the working drawings, schedules, specs for bidding, etc... part of the construction phase. I will prepare them for you based on the letter of agreement that was signed in the Programming Phase.

Contract Administration – This is the construction phrase of the project. Depending on the letter of agreement that you signed I can provide the following duties…. Assist with bidding process, site visits and inspections, final walk through, final photos, and evaluation.

What makes CW Design different?

Education – It is my job to educate my clients. To help you understand the “why”. This will help you to make the best choices for your project.

Translate – You ask, “I have furniture pieces nearly 100 years old. Can I use them in my modern design?” As the Interior Designer, I answer your question by renovating your space using your existing pieces along with new ones and combining them into a cohesive design.

Communication – I am a strong believer in communication. You will be aware of every step we take along the way. I have never heard a client tell me, “I wish you would stop communicating with me on my project.”

Advocate – I am passionate about making sure your voice is heard throughout the project. I have lots of experience due to making sure my autistic children’s needs are being met.
