It’s the spot that the entire family gathers, shares a meal, chats about life in general, laughs over old times and brings that ultimate feeling of home as you create new memories together. But is your dining room doing all of that for you?

I believe Dining Rooms are the Heart of Our Homes

It saddens me when I see a home that doesn’t use their formal dining area. I’m an old-fashioned soul, and I love to sit down at a dinner table with the entire family gathered around. I may not love to cook, but the times together with family and friends are priceless. Has your Dining Room become an office, playroom, storage closet, or being used for anything else besides dining?

I want YOU to have that perfect Dining Room

One of my current clients is an absolutely amazing Hostess. She is always in demand, and throws dinner parties for 4 as well as music events for 30. I’ve been helping her pull her dining room together and she entertains almost constantly. We’re creating a room that people love to linger around the table and share fond memories. I can help you create that same feeling in your own home.

You don’t have to have a huge formal dining room to plan the perfect Thanksgiving this year. This small dining area in an open-concept home offers a place to gather a more intimate group of friends and family for a meal. This was a project I did for a client last fall.

This dining area works great for everyday use for the family, but is easy to extend for large family gatherings as well.

This dining area above works great for everyday use for the family, but is easy to extend for large family gatherings as well. Once we decorate your dining room, I can show you how to rework some of your furnishings when you’re expecting a large crowd. Like below:

So Let’s Start Working on Your Dining Room – BEFORE Thanksgiving

I know you don’t want your mother-in-law on your back. I know you want that perfect “Norman Rockwell” Thanksgiving this year, with all of the trimmings and the beautiful photographs to capture the memories together. It’s time NOW to start working on it.

Why Book NOW? Thanksgiving is 3 months away!

Because Rome wasn’t built in a day. In order to have your dining room FULLY made over and ready for Thanksgiving, we need to start NOW. And because you’re serious about getting started right away, I am offering anyone who does their Consultation (Design Work Session) before October 12, 2016 $100 OFF the whole room price! You have to call me RIGHT AWAY if you’re going to get on my calendar in time. Here’s how the process will work:

  1. You call me at 271-2686 and tell me about your dining room
  2. We schedule your Consultation (DWS) before October 12th, 2016.
  3. I come do the Consultation (DWS) and share my ideas for the space with you. If you don’t want me to complete the job, you only pay the Consultation fee. If you sign a contract that day, you get $100 off my Design Fee, making it only $500 for an Advanced Package. If you have an open-concept living/dining or dining/kitchen area, the combined space counts as a single room.

Then I get it all pulled together over the next few weeks and YOU get the Thanksgiving you’ve always dreamed of hosting.

Call Me Today and Let’s Get Started!

I have another special gift for you with your contract – a $200 value, but that’s a surprise you’ll get that day. But trust me – you’re going to LOVE it!! I can’t wait to chat with you about your project and help you create the room you’re dreaming of!
