What We Do
Interior Design and Space Planning We meet with you in the beginning of the project to determine changes which can improve the usable space, or balance in the room. In new construction, we might help evaluate the blueprint for the best placement of outlets, or doors and windows in relation to possible arrangements of furniture. In a remodel, we might suggest taking out walls, or changing counters or other built-ins for a newer more open look. We make recommendations for updated finishes such as paint, flooring, countertops, or lighting. Our clients usually find that meeting with us before beginning any expensive project is the best investment made.
Custom Draperies and Bedding We are the Lake Ray Hubbard specialists in Custom Draperies and Shades. Our studio is resourced with a complete line of fabrics from Kasmir, Robert Allen, Kravet, Fabricut, Kast, DMI, and Carole Fabrics. We have a vast selection of trims and decorative hardware to complete the look. Our designs are drawn to scale on the computer and shown with options in order to help our clients visualize the look in their rooms. Unusual windows are no problem for us, we have ideas. Whether the treatment needs to provide privacy, or sun control, sound insulation, or just beauty, we are known for creating the perfect window treatment for every window. Our talented drapery workroom and professional installers bring the process to a beautiful conclusion on installation day.

We also carry other major brands and offer a well rounded selection for price and quality across the industry.

Accessories and Staging People are amazed at the difference we can make in their homes just by taking a fresh look at their furnishings and accessories and rearranging them. Sometimes it is just a matter of eliminating items, or re-hanging artwork that makes a newer, more balanced look. We call this a “make-over” and it is one of the quickest and least expensive ways to freshen your home for a party or upcoming holidays. New accessories may be added if needed.
