I used to come home and feel overwhelmed by the "stuff" in my space. My "stuff" was not cheap or unattractive, but my house was dark and there was too much going on. I absolutely LOVE being in my home after the changes Bridget made. It is bright, calming, simple… yet elegant and a wonderful place for our family to be together. Bridget is not only creative, but a wonderful business woman. She arrives when she says she is going to and manages the project with professionalism and kindness.

Taking on a renovation is stressful, and hiring Bridget was the best decision I made. The way she calmly walked us through the process made everything so much easier! From the beginning, she listened carefully and gave us great ideas to create a style that fit the house as well as balanced my husband's and my different tastes. Her professional approach allowed us to use her expertise where we needed it and manage our budget. The overall result is the calming environment that we wanted. In our kitchen area, her color selections pulled everything together and matched adjoining rooms so that the house now flows. We highly recommend Bridget!
