Meaningful spaces. Created together. 

In my childhood home every piece told a story and every storied piece had a home. The “10 second tidy” was the daily approach to organization. Decorative items weren’t always trendy, but they meant something and therefore had a place. Instant gratification did not drive design choices. Spaces were curated over time and infused with personality: quirky art, book lined shelves, and hundreds of photographs. These pieces drove conversations and made our house a home.

 

Today, my husband and I are creating our own meaningful spaces. The story of our dating years is told on a gallery wall. A wire sculpture sheep represents my first purchase from a favorite art gallery. An inherited gold bamboo mirror sits atop the first antique we purchased as newly weds. Our book collection sparks conversations, and the worn reading chairs proclaim frequent use. Home is a work in progress, a collection over time, and a space that tells our story.

 

What is your story? How does your space tell your story? Interior Design does not have to be intimidating, overwhelming, or purely trend-based. I hear you: HGTV and Pinterest have filled you with ideas, you are inspired, you want to be involved in the project, and now you just need a little help pulling it all together. We can work side by side to assess your existing space, determine what works, what to replace, and what to refresh. Starting from scratch or stuck in the middle and overwhelmed with the renovation or building process? Let's set up a consultation. The whole idea behind TenFour Home Design Consulting is to offer help when and where you need it and step back when and where you want to take over. After all, a space covered with your handprints will be most meaningful.
