Turn around time is typically 2-3 weeks and prices are based on design needs. For a full service design, you provide photographs and measurements. The final design will include space plan recommendation(s), design board, furniture and decor specifications.

“Samantha is an elegant, energetic and amazing designer. She has a eye for style and has turned our house into a “home” with all of the well-planned and warm details. She has the ability to work with a blank canvas and listens to the needs of the family to create a functional but beautiful environment. I highly recommend without reservation.” – Christine G. (Elmhurst, IL)
“Samantha was great to work with! When my husband and I purchased our first home weeks after having our first child we knew we would need some help pulling it all together. We had very little furniture to speak of, some awkward room layouts, and a need to maximize space and function in our 2 bedroom condo. She came up with great ideas and worked to include some things that were important to us. She also helped to gently push us outside our comfort zone, in a good way 🙂 (Sam, Craig finally agrees that the sea urchins were the way to go!). The end result is a beautifully furnished, totally functional space that we love calling home. We get compliments from anyone who stops by for a visit. People often say it looks like we live in something out of a magazine.
Best of all Samantha managed the budget and timeline and did so gracefully! Gotta love a home project that comes in on target in both areas! Thanks again for helping us create our first home.” – Liz W. (Evanston, IL)
“Samantha was exactly what we needed when we moved into our new suburban house from a our city condo! She helped us figure out the best layouts for awkward sized rooms, pick paint colors, source rugs and furniture pieces, and pick upholstery fabric to bring new life to old furniture. She was able to nail down our style perfectly and create a space we now call home.” – Kate S (Winnetka, IL)
“Samantha has an incredible eye for design, is professional and detail-oriented. She was able to mesh my style with my husband’s taste together and deliver a design plan that worked within our budget. She is so friendly and makes working together so much fun!” – Rachel G. (Chicago, IL)
“Sam is fantastic. Her attention to detail, ability to work within (any) budget make it a wonderful experience all around. Sam was able to tie all elements of our house together, and we love our home, thanks to her!” – Kristen A. (Elmhurst, IL)
