Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
Welcome. I’m glad you’re here
Instead of giving you all the usual interior design gobbledygook, I want to talk about something much more important –– YOU. After all, my business exists because my focus is all about MAKING SPACE FOR YOU.
When working on a project, I always ask myself this: How can I improve the space AND save you time and money?
Here's how I see it:
–– You shouldn't waste your time. With decades of experience, I know instinctively where the weak areas are and what can be done to correct them. I will give you the tools and information you need to help you get things right from the start.
–– You don’t want to pay more than you need to. I believe in fair pricing for design work and sourced materials. I’ve got your back.
–– You want to love your design – we're not done until you do. That’s the only way this can work. You're the one who will be living in your space. If you love it you’ll tell others about it. That way we both benefit.
–– You want to feel your space is about YOU. It's not about me. The best interiors are those with character and aura. They're layered with the stories of those living there. That's what I care about.
–– You want your design to last – I am not motivated by brand names or the latest fads – instead I focus on character, quality and lasting design.
You're in great hands. I've been doing this for 20 years.

Making Space for you
WORKING WITH ARCHITECTS
Teaming up with architects and other professionals means we’re combining our separate areas of expertise to offer a stronger design and better service to our clients.
Having a deep understanding of the mood and function of each room, providing detailed room plans and furniture layouts, and providing a complete schedule of finishes and fixtures ensures that:
-Interior and exterior spaces relate and compliment one another in terms of style, finishes and color
- plumbing points, light fixtures, and power outlets are positioned exactly where they are needed
- Cabinets, bookcases and other millwork are precisely designed according to the storage requirements of the client
- Any specific design detail to walls, ceilings, bulkheads, and paneling are incorporated in the design
WORKING WITH BUILDERS
Developers, builders, general contractors and remodelers - we love working with them, and they with us, simply because projects run so much smoother when we pool our recourses. While we put our heads together with the client to work out the design detail for their kitchen or bathroom, help sourcing fixtures and finishes, and put together a paint color schedule, the builder can focus on preparing for, and getting construction done.
When all the design detail is worked out at the time that the projects starts, and with a detailed fixture and finishes schedule, the entire construction process is less stressful – for both clients and contractors. This also ensures that:
- project cost estimations can be calculated more accurately
- the site can be prepared according to the predetermined schedule – saving time and money
- clients are more likely to get the finishes they want when materials are ordered well in time
- there are fewer disappointments because of selected items being out of stock
- there is less pressure on the client during the construction period to make rushed, last minute decisions

Most of us live in homes that need change in some form or another to make it work and feel better for us - our lifestyle, and our aesthetic. The beauty is that you already know some of the answers. Working together, we will explore the possibilities of your home, finding ways to improve functionality, flow and aesthetics of the space.
Small or big, we have the experience, product knowledge, and a honed design instinct to help you figure out your space. This way:

-we'll coach you how to make informed decisions and product selections that are timeless

We recently moved countries, and I want to tell you what I did just after we moved into our new house – but I’m interrupting myself with something about the Far East first. Did you know that […]
(Picture via Tempo da delicadeza) Whenever the subject of choosing a sofa enters the realms of our home, my husband reminds me of a former colleague who said that he wants a blind man to test and recommend his sofa – someone whose opinion will not be tainted by a thing as frivolous as looks. Well, […]
(Picture via Pinterest) I don’t know about you, but I dread that question. What’s your style? It’s so hard. First of all, it’s a weird mix of things, and then it morphs and grows all the time. I look at my house now, and I think back to my first apartment. Wow, is it even the […]
Hi, I’m Mia
There’s never enough time. Most of the time there isn’t enough space either. I haven’t yet figured out how to stretch time but I do know how to make the most of every square inch.
Life’s too short to be complacent. Let’s do something outrageous…

Insider tips and bits that will get you going…
What clients say
“Mia’s creative flair always gives us something more than we imagined without compromising on practical design and layout….” Dusty Bristol
“Mia has a designer’s invaluable sense of proportion and color. She listens and interprets very well ideas and desires. She was utterly reliable and consistently a pleasure for everyone to work with…” Kay Frommelt

You obviously care about your investment.
Most home owners want to make choices that will last, and give them a GOOD RETURN ON THEIR INVESTMENT.
Whether you're remodelling or building new, there are endless things to consider and decisions to be made. It's costly and the choices you make are often fairly permanent.
An experienced designer will coach you through the process to make great choices – and save you a good deal of time, money and headache.
If you're on a budget — as most of us are — you cannot afford to get it wrong.
Let's do it right from the start.
