"WOW! I am in love. Your designs are amazing and I made them into my phone background."

"After purchasing an older home we were very overwhelmed with the amount
of renovations needed to be done. Mandy embraced the project with much
excitement. She saw our vision and showed us how to make it happen. I would recommend Mandy to anyone needing design advise!!"
The biggest challenge I faced was making decisions in a timely matter to ensure timelines were met and house décor all tied together. It’s hard and expensive to change things after the fact. When hiring Mandy it took away the pressure as she had so many good ideas and was very pleasant to collaborate with. She delivered excellent complete designs. Having a complete final design is everything and ensures the project runs smoothly. If you hire Mandy you will be very happy to work with her and be pleased with the results she delivers.
Mandy put us at ease and was able to help clarify our design needs. She was very friendly, professional, creative and organized. She listened to our ideas and types of concepts we wanted to create and what type of budget we wanted to work within. We were extremely pleased with the final design results and very impressed that Mandy was able to create such a warm, inviting atmosphere both professionally in our business and also within our home. It was such a relief to have Mandy come in and take care of all our interior design needs.
That’s like asking does philosophy matter? Do economics matter? Design is not a thing that just sits there. Its not an object; its not about chairs; its not about choosing colors; its not about taste. To me, design is a way of understanding the world around us. Design is not only about offering functional solutions, it can be about asking questions. Design is the way we shape the world around us. It’s the way we look at those problems that face us all. Is the world going too fast? Has the smartphone killed off the idea of privacy? Will robots take away our jobs? All these things are shaped by and understood by design. You don’t need to want to be a designer to understand how important it can be to explore design, because design is a fantastic toolkit to understand the world.
