This client called me in for a living room refresh.  She didn't want to purchase new furniture or make any major investments/changes (save for recovering a chair) but it is amazing what we were able to achieve with some decluttering, some accessories and a couple o...

I've rounded up a group of incredibly talented women who I've deemed as "makers" since they all have very different ways of sharing their creativity through the things they make.  They are all local to Raleigh and are all certainly worth checking out!...
