Our professionals will provide space planning, any necessary floor plans, and construction drawings. This process ensures correct placement of architectural or structural changes (to encourage traffic and sales in businesses or high function in family living), furniture design and all services for a complete room change or home makeover. We focus on providing harmony and balance in whole business and house design.
This cutting-edge trend is highly recommended to getting the top dollar for homeowners choosing to sell their homes. Working with local realtors, we research the buying market for each client and will provide (if necessary) furnishings and accessories for the homeowner or will rearrange existing furnishings to enable the buyer to see the home as "theirs" at first sight.
Some homeowners and business owners simply need new furniture, accessories, or built-ins to spruce up their existing space. We attend to that need with as much attention as whole house design. Color consultations are very common and provide a workable palette for every client from which to start or finish a design project.
Our success in upholstery and window treatment design is evident in the testimonies of our clients. We have an extensive library of fabrics, unique and beautiful, from which to choose from.
This is a extremely complicated field for homeowners to dig into on their own! We have the resources, vendors, and professionals that we link with in this field to make this process enjoyable and fulfilling. We also will work with the homeowners' existing kitchen designers to make sure the scope and scale of the design process is complete, endeavoring to see that every dollar is money well spent for the homeowner.

Since I was 5 years old, dance was my passion. Performing in schools, dance organizations, musical productions, and with theatre groups consumed most of my early years. I entered and graduated Rutgers University as a dance major. I landed my first “professional” business world job as a creative writer with a PR firm, then as an editor of an award-winning Realtor newsletter. My first break from all that activity was because of marriage and children (two wonderful boys).
The pattern for practicing interior design was eventually established through various jobs and contacts. I worked with pretty much every aspect of the business including builders, contractors, and architects. I also worked as a design center coordinator, representative for a large model home interior design firm, designer for furniture, fabric, and wallpaper stores, and as a principal of my own design company.
I continued taking courses at the Philadelphia Art Institute and with other professional networks including marketplace seminars, ASID, and IIDA workshops. These experiences have continued to fine-tune my ever-growing design trade.
In addition, I have also worked with some television productions. Working with shows, such as Trading Spaces and a series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, was certainly inspiring and glamorous. But the real thrill for me has been watching my clients’ businesses and the homes transformed into well-designed, comforting, visually-inspiring, highly-functional spaces they’ve been desiring.

"I had the good fortune of working with Donna when I bought my new house. The house was new construction and all the walls were painted with the typical " builder's white ".

"In less than one hour Donna assessed my very old, small and tired kitchen and envisioned a retro look. She took 120 square feet and turned it into the perfect working space adding functionality and style. We did this kitchen top to bottom with new drywall, paint, lighting, cabinetry, counter top,
