Design Consultations

City Farmhouse is open for Design Consultations, online or in person. You’ve been asking for years, so I am thrilled to announce this new addition to my site. My goal with this service is to help you create the home you have always dreamed of. Think of me as your design bestie there to help you plan your dream space.

Designing a house can be an arduous endeavor. There are many choices & decisions to be made and so many styles to love. This is where I come in to give you a plan and purpose for each space. Think about how much easier it is to have someone on your team, a friend giving you professional advice. We will have fun exploring style(s), color, paint, layout, texture, lighting, furniture selections, and art to create a functional & comfortable space everyone can enjoy. A well-thought-out design plan will save you time and money and make those tough decisions crystal clear. At the end of the day, it’s about giving you choices and tools to empower you to create a home to love.

Here is how it works….
The process is very simple. Email me at [email protected] and let me know some basics. I will then email you a design consultation questionnaire. Be as specific as possible and upload images of your space. From there, we’ll set up the consult.

Full Design Consult Virtual or In-Person: $500 Per Room

This package includes a one-hour design consultation with me in person or via call. We will discuss your needs and wants for the space. From there, I will create a Pinterest board, mood board, and expansive source list. You can use this design plan to keep you on track, whether you decide to tackle everything right away or spread it out over time.

Sometimes, you need a trusted friend (or design bestie) to steer you in the right direction. I can offer guidance on style selection, paint choices, fabrics, layout, furniture sources, where to start, what stays and what goes, and more.

I recently had the opportunity to work with designer/decorator Jen O’Brien. Jen is an extraordinary, multi-talented individual who is skilled in every aspect of interior design. The client we worked with was at a very fragile moment in her life. What truly sets Jen apart from anyone I have ever worked with was the kindness, empathy, consideration, and compassion she showed. Her generosity and giving spirit are evident in everything she does.

‘I would like to express my gratitude to Jen for designing our lower level. This room has been problematic for us since we moved in trying to figure out how to make it function for multiple uses and somehow accomplish that on a budget. Not only did Jen meet our needs, she far surpassed them! She broke down each area into a clear design for each function, supplying links to all of the items, and finding the perfect pieces that fit into both our aesthetic AND our budget. The best part is, through listening and asking questions she nailed the perfect design for our family that feels like ‘us’ and we are so grateful to her! Jen is unbelievably kind, so easy to talk to, and is wildly talented! If you ever get the chance to work with her do not hesitate and you’ll be so glad you did! Thank you, Jen!’
