Design Sensibilities


Style is not just what you see, but the science of what you don’t see. Country cottage, urban traditional or modern minimalism – style becomes a reflection of who you are.


From the back deck to the master bedroom, every space should possess timeless character and impart a feeling of comfort.


Clues left in your spaces allow for a glimpse into your interests, passions and personality. Showcase your hobbies, travels or love of art to represent your unique story.


Whether renewing what you own, breathing new life into a tired space or starting fresh, let imagination be your creative guide.


Let Mimi get to know you and she will balance your lifestyle needs, wants and dreams with your budget, aims, and constraints. Mimi can help you save time and money, prevent mistakes and ease the angst of going it alone.
