Questions and Answers
What are you most proud of?
We were thrilled to find out that one of our favorite projects had been selected for national publication in Woman's Day Kitchen & Bath. This mid-century modern kitchen in Grey Walls, Powhatan VA was featured in the October issue and also showcased some of our decorative concrete work in the raised bar of the entertainment island. This open-plan kitchen was 2 years in the making and to see it in print was a joy. The best part was getting a call from a new Richmond client who had seen our work in a magazine they bought while in Chicago!
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
We fully stand behind our work. Most of the products we sell come with a lifetime warranty. We warrant our labor for one year from the end of installation. We also offer a referral rewards program for our clients as a way to say thank you for your generous referrals!
What questions should a customer ask before hiring you?
How long have you been a designer? Do you have a degree in interior design? Are you NCIDQ certified? Has your work been published?
My father, who was a brilliant artist and painter, encouraged me in the arts and enrolled me in formal study at the age of 5. Later, I was fortunate to have been mentored by friends of the family who allowed me to spend time with them at their advertising agency in NYC, and taught me a great deal about design and photography. They later helped me procure and execute my first paying design job at the age of 16. I also had a great friend and mentor in my teacher and professional interior designer, John Riley, who took me under his wing and encouraged me to pursue interior design. With his help, I was able to develop a substantial portfolio which afforded me a full scholarship to FIT in NYC which I declined in order to attend Arcadia University in Philadelphia. Through this rigorous course of study I attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Interior Design, and extensive experience in graphic design and photography.
How many projects do you average in a year?
We typically do around 30 projects a year. These will include anything from a large kitchen or master suite addition to helping a client re-organize their closets or selecting a new fabric to upholster a favorite chair. In addition to these are the 15 or so highly specialized decorative concrete projects we create each year which include countertops, furniture and fireplace surrounds.
