Introduction: Our goal is to inspire you! To help you create the space of your dreams -- a place that you love to be in, one that is relaxing or bold and beautifully functional, and one that inspires you to be you. We work with your vision, refining your style and needs, until we design a look you love. We focus on delivering that look at a price point that is within your budget and oftentimes at lower cost than the inspiration photos and looks you've imagined. We do this by sourcing from a very wide spectrum of furniture/furnishings sites and venues, and by curating pieces especially for you. We charge by the hour or a flat fee, and do not charge commissions on anything. This allows us the incentive to give you the best design and quality, while focusing on saving you money. We'd love to help you, be it just in some ideas for your design, or for getting your entire space created! Our first consultation is free.

Design to Inspire did a fabulous job on my home. We wanted to transform our look while still keeping some pieces that we cherished. Chris took the time to look at all of our pinterest photos (alot of them!) and shared so many more to really understand our dreams and desires. She rendered several designs for us (living room, dining room and kitchen) and made tweaks and changes as we requested. I love the fact that she truly listened and understood our goals. The way she combined what we had with new pieces that she curated for us was terrific! Chris is the consummate professional, she is kind and knowledgeable and has a great eye! It is wonderful to come home to a well thought out design.

I hired Design to Inspire after an acquaintance raved about their work, and I’m really happy with my decision to try them!  I shared lots of photos of the style I was looking for. Many of photos were of Restoration Hardware which we love. Unfortunately RH is out of our price range, but Chris explained that she specializes in recreating those looks with high quality pieces at a lower price point.  We were amazed at the designs ideas she presented. She created a similar feel that were tailored to our style and the size of our space which is smaller than a typical room size RH furniture is designed for. We got our dream living room and dining room at a great price without compromising the look or quality! everything from furniture, rugs, artwork, lighting fixtures and accent pieces!  Everyone who has come over compliments our new furniture and more importantly we love our space! :)

Working with Chris was a wonderful and seamless experience. She helped me refine my style as we talked through my vision. She offered me several options, all within my budget. To my pleasure, she actually came in under budget while designing and delivering my space more beautifully than I could have hoped for! You must hire her!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We do not charge commissions of the furnishings we provide or any part of our pricing. We operate on an hourly rate basis, and are able to work within your overall range (or will let you know we can't!). We also work on a flat fee basis, if we learn enough about your desires. Overall, you will find our fees to be much more affordable than many interior designers, especially those who work on commissions.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
