Most of us know what we want as we consider designing our homes; to create a comfortable environment to come home to, plop down on the cozy couch and enjoy the serenity our home provides.

So simple, right... Hmmm, maybe not. We all feel we can pull together a few sofas, chairs, coffee table, lamp and rug and call it a day. But how does it look, or how does it feel? Pulled together? Special? Or maybe it’s time to call in an expert who can decipher exactly what you always envisioned, but couldn’t articulate.
