Imagination is FREE when it comes to Interior Design!

Have you ever walked into a room and wondered what you could do to dress it up a bit? Often we immediately think we need to replace the furniture or floor coverings, and we may get overwhelmed with the cost and depart from the room without changing a thing. But I am here to tell you there is a way you can update your Atlanta home with some creative interior design!

Interior redesign, also known as “use what you have decorating” is a service that updates your style by using the furnishings and accessories you already own. Most of the clients I talk to say they have nothing in their homes that can be used to update their space. But most time they have treasures hidden I just love bringing back to life!

Here are some of my favorite ways to repurpose items I have found shopping my client’s home:


    • Old iron gates make great artwork!
Family room


    • Old trucks make wonderful side tables.
Boys bedroom


    • Old shutters make a perfect headboard.
Kings Creek 2 (After)


  • Old pallets make a great wine rack.
Repurposed Pallets


  • A vintage mirror which was repurposed as a bulletin board.
Den / Home office.


  • Vintage ladder doubles as a nightstand.
Beach House - Cornwall

The result is always a revitalized room that highlights my client’s personality, with a designer look, for a fraction of the cost of replacing furniture.
