Solo HOME Designs offers a uniquely creative approach to Renovation and Interior Design.
My approach is simple; provide super creative solutions in a practical manner with special attention to detail.
Subtle details and creative solutions are what makes a space come together in both form and function.
Whether looking to renovate or simply want a refresh to a stale space,
I'd love to help you transform your space into something beautiful, creative and functional.
In 2016, I made a professional shift from graphic design & marketing to interior design and have loved every moment. The owner of a graphic design/ marketing business for over 25 years, I have always maintained that good design applies to all that is visual; that includes decorating. While I may have spent 25+ years designing logos and corporate communications, I believe these same skills also apply to interior design and set me apart from typical interior designers.
My approach is to help create a beautiful space in a practical, affordable manner. I have renovated, built and redecorated my whole adult life. This is my passion now.
Whether you're looking for Renovation Design or Interior Design -
I'd love to help you transform your space into something really beautiful, unique, functional and cool.

Not everyone has a comfort level with designing a space, choosing colors and finding the perfect finishing touches.
But I do.
THIS is why I created Solo HOME Designs.

RENOVATION DESIGN —
Renovation design services help take a rough concept to a finished project. Many details go into renovating a space. The flow and function of a space is as important as the colors, textures and furnishing. I will assist on every aspect of the project from start to finish and provide practical, creative ideas and suggestions for unique solutions to make your space beautiful and functional. I will work closely with the architect and contractor to make sure every aspect of the renovation is addressed down to the finest detail. If desired, I have fabulous resources with whom I have partnered and worked on all types of renovations.

I will research and shop for everything - always with budget in mind. Combining creative solutions along with smart shopping is the focus of every project.

COST STRUCTURE —
SHD has a unique approach to billing which I believe is in the best interest of the client and SHD. I do not bill on an hourly basis or add mark up to product or construction costs. These costs are billed directly to client with no markup. My costs are for design and solutions. At the completion of the job a project binder is presented with all receipts, specs and information for your records.
SHD will present a project bid/agreement for design services only based on a detailed, mutually agreed upon 'Scope of Work'. 'The Scope of Work' will include a comprehensive outline of all project details and services needed. Once signed off, it is my obligation to provide the services outlined in the project bid for the amount agreed upon. This ensures that your project is finished and complete with every picture hung and detail addressed.
CONTRACTOR AND PURCHASES:
All construction costs will be billed directly to the client with no mark up.
All purchases will be billed directly to client with no mark up and designer discount applied when available.
