“As a real estate professional, it was refreshing working with a designer who created a design plan that considered our immediate needs for a beautiful, workable space, AND long-term goals of selling our property. Cumby knew what design changes would maximize profits in a future resale and those that might best be left for a future owner.” — Kathy

What can I expect in a custom design consult?

Cumby will meet with you in your home to hear what you’re looking for. She’ll get to know a little about your personality and how you and your family use your home. It’s a very relaxed process where you can focus priorities and dream about possibilities. In the get-to-know-you session you can discuss likes and dislikes, goals, and a budget.

On a walk-through of your home, you can talk about:

  •     concerns
  •     what works and doesn’t “work”
  •     functionality
  •     design ideas
  •     problem solving

It’s the first step of a strategic plan to help you get moving on your project!
