    I absolutely love the new furnishings in my office, all thanks to Carole’s wonderful sense of style. Working with a designer was a new experience for me, and Carole patiently walked me through the process, and along the way helped me discover my style preferences. Carole did an amazing job of selecting beautiful furniture and art that really transformed my very drab office, and even designed a custom lamp using a thrift store vase as the base. I get compliments continually from visitors to my office. I’m very happy with my new space, and grateful for Carole’s special touch!

About this pro

Our goal is to create holistic designs for your home that reflect the desired "look and feel" for everyone living in your home. As a Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP), we work together to ensure that your home is designed for both current and future needs. I design beautiful spaces while also thinking about health and safety needs for you and your family members. Whether you're buying a new home, refreshing an existing home, downsizing for retirement, or transitioning out of your current home, we create a design plan that works for you and your family for years to come. I have a passion for beautiful spaces! Colors, textures, structures, organic lines...these are the areas of design that most define my style. The best part of my design work is seeing the spaces transform before our eyes. I love to see that "Wow" look on my clients' faces! It also makes me happy knowing that I have created a home that will take my clients well into their future years with health and safety as a core tenet. And they like that, too!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      One-time design consultation fee (no more than 2 hours): $250 Hourly rate: May vary depending on scope of work
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I typically provide my initial consultations free of charge so that I am able to properly discuss the scope of work involved with your design project. If you only desire a one-time consultation, then I will charge a one-time consultation fee. Once I understand the overall scope of work, I will prepare a contract for your review and approval. Upon final approval of the terms of our agreement, we will begin the design process. Every design project is tailored to my customer's specific needs. However, I will typically do the initial "legwork" to create the design palette for your space(s). I will present the design palette to you for further discussion/selection. If needed, we will iterate on this process until you approve a final design palette. Then, implementation of your selected design(s) will begin! This typically involves purchase orders and waiting times for selected items to arrive. If it is just color selections, then you can proceed with your painter on the selected colors. I like to be involved with your painter to ensure the paint colors are "true" to what we selected. Same for fabric selections in terms of assuring "true" colors as dye lots can vary. At the end, we will step back together and reflect on "befores" and "afters" before I depart the scene.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have a Residential Design diploma from the Art Institute of Seattle. I have been working in residential design since 2007. I am a Master Home Environmentalist. I am a Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP).
    Coverage Area for Essense Interior Design is about 50+ miles of Seattle, WA.
