Mimi’s enthusiasm, honesty, and concern for every client are the hallmarks of who she is and the spirit behind her work.

of her experience gives her a strong sense of creativity and cost; taking particular pride in seeing clients meet their budget expectations.

Style is not just what you see, but the skillful alchemy of what you don’t see. The magic that makes your style. From country cottage, urban traditional, artistic eclecticism or modern minimalism – she embraces all visual interpretations.
Here is our chance to reuse, renew and repurpose much of what you already have and/or choose not to replace. Tricks can be used to refresh what you own and breathe new life into a tired space.
Whether it is the back deck or your bedroom, every space should imbue a feeling of comfort and visual stimulation.
You should be leaving clues in all your spaces that tell us something about you or your family’s interests, passions and personality. Perhaps by showcasing family history, personal hobbies, travels or love of nature or art…Your home, workspace or cottage represent your unique story.
