From Client

“Colleen has helped us with bathroom remodels, kitchen update and recently furniture selection for a second home. She saves us so much time and hassle – instead of wandering through showrooms, dithering and uncertain, we tell her our vague ideas and she brings them to life. I love the fabrics she proposed for our upholstered furniture – 4 coordinating fabrics, practical and attractive and perfect with our impulse-purchase rug. She is up to date on the latest materials and products. We appreciate her wonderful forthright and friendly way of talking with contractors, sales reps, and craftspeople as well as clients. And she is respectful of our budget!”

About Colleen


I live in Minneapolis with my landscape architect/urban designer husband, my daughter who believes she’s my design assistant and sous chef, a cuddly black cat, a feisty Siamese kitten and a menagerie of turkeys and other wild animals that visit our backyard for the free food. When I'm not designing you'll often find me cooking up a Paleo feast, playing house with my daughter, or hiding in a corner with my nose in a book.
