Hello, I’m Tiffany – Interior stylist with a mission of helping you achieve your dream home. If you are unsure of what direction of design you want – I will guide you in creating a vision, or I can implement a style you know and love. Whether you want a quick simple room makeover or a whole home refresh – I help you navigate and achieve design that reflects your life, style and budget.
Starting and ending your day in a space you love makes life better. Home is where the heart is – so true. I’m here to make design easy, fun, fast, and attainable. Even if you’re nervous to hire a “designer” – try an hour – a little goes a long way! I work with clients all over the country with E-Design. It’s fast, easy and can be a true time saver. If we are in the same city, I can work in person or utilize E-Design – we can customize a plan that works for your schedule!
Styling your home can (and should be) easy, fun and rewarding. From a simple room make-over to a full home design. E-design or in person, I can work with you and your budget to achieve what you want quickly and seamlessly.
Design is creating a home that represents the very best version of you. Making your house a place you love will change your life. It can be choosing a new light fixture or piece of art, the perfect throw pillows — to a full home makeover. It might be pulling together what you already have – or just doing one thing, choosing a new rug for example, that can change everything. The very best design is layered, has depth, meaning, is unique, has personality, is comfortable, inviting and functional. Most of all, it’s personal. If it feels overwhelming – start small, but start somewhere.
My goal is to take your list of wants and deliver amazing results while working within your budget. To help with this.. below are a few steps in preparation:
* Styling your space moves as swiftly as you do – meaning, if you are ready to purchase, replace, paint, etc. then once that special item is found and paint color chosen – it’s done! It’s all a matter of you being ready to move forward with the project at hand.
* Are all parties involved ready? This is critical. You might be ready, but if your other half isn’t – prepare for the process to (potentially) go slower than you hope for. I can choose furniture, paint, lighting, rearrange layout – but if half of the decision makers aren’t ready for change, new paint, or purchasing that lamp, rug or sofa – then even with all elements chosen, it might be a bit of a waiting game. Knowing this beforehand helps you create stages to work within.
* What is your budget? (furniture/accessory budget + design fee budget) Even if you don’t have a specific direction of what you want/need, a first consultation will create focus – so don’t worry! Know exactly what you want? Have a budget for each item on your list or a whole room budget. How much are you prepared to spend on a rug? an ottoman? accessories? new bedding? night stands? Remember that creating a budget doesn’t mean it will cost every cent of that number. I search for the best items at the best price. My clients are constantly surprised at coming in under their furniture budget. Even if you are unsure of what an appropriate shopping budget is for some pieces – knowing what you are willing to spend is critical.
* Create a list of likes and dislikes – love color, want pet/kid friendly, entertain frequently – equally important – what you don’t like. If possible – create a pinterest board of images showing design you are drawn to – the more descriptive, the more I get a sense of your style.
Have the above in place? Ready to get started? Email me with a summary of what you would like to work on, include brightly lit, multi-angled photos of the areas in need and your budget for both furniture/accessories and design time.
I work with clients all over the country via E-design. It’s a great way to create the home of your dreams without a full-service commitment. I’ll choose your new pieces online, send you a master shopping list and you’ll be on your way. (I often find great pieces on sale &/or one-of-a-kind pieces – this is when being ready-to-purchase is key. Sourcing pieces is part of the design fee – it’s up to you to to pounce on that great sale, vintage piece or last one available) The best thing about e-design – your results are just as amazing whether we’re face to face or miles apart.
Are you in Los Angeles and want to work with me in person? Great! Same as above – email me a summary of wants/needs including photos and your budget for services and product – I’ll give you an idea of what we can accomplish together within that criteria. Whether it’s full service or a fast and furious day of shopping and styling, we can tailor the design to fit.
Want to work in person with me but don’t live in the Los Angeles area? We travel often and I love working with clients in their hometowns. Let me know what you’re looking for, where you’re located, and hopefully we can make it happen!
My goal with every client is to create a home that reflects YOU. A home that is personal, original and makes you happy every time you walk in the door. Now let’s get started!

Tiffany has completed several decorating jobs for us. She is always timely and efficient. We bought a new beach house rental last year and Tiffany was instrumental in the entire renovation. After the purchase, we took photos of the house with a cell phone and emailed them to her with our thoughts on what we would like to focus on. We also included our projected budget. Within a few days, Tiffany had emailed photos and links of new design ideas. She used an interior design paint program and cropped in light fixtures and furniture. This gave us a clear visual representation of the finished product. I could actually see a photo of our rooms remastered! She provided numerous options and used our feedback to make further decisions. We love the finished product and were able to raise our rental rates for this season.
In the meantime, we also decided to upgrade the look of our primary residence. With Tiffany’s design help, we chose new carpet and new paint throughout the house and redecorated our master bedroom. Some of her suggestions were so simple yet made a huge impact. For example, she simply rearranged the furniture in our sunroom and repositioned the bedding in our master. Tiffany has a great eye for design and is able to cleverly mix and present color. When we entertain, everyone is very complementary of the décor!
Tiffany was always gracious and patient with us throughout the design process. She emailed us back in a timely manner but we could not always do the same. At times, we either became very busy with work or we needed to wait to make a purchase once our budget allowed. Tiffany’s emails always took a relaxed tone in reference to us getting back to her and finishing a project.
Did we mention that Tiffany lives in the Midwest and we are on the east coast? She is able to do all this from photos and email correspondence. She selects items which are new or used, matching your style and budget. She even selects local items for you to consider as options that fit perfectly with her overall design. We would highly recommend Tiffany’s services for any size remodel or just for design advice. She is a pleasure to collaborate with and an asset to anyone needing timely and professional design services. — Melissa

My husband and I purchased a 1960’s home and “fixer upper” was an understatement. We knew before buying the home that Tiffany would be our designer and without knowing that we would have ran for the hills after walking through this house. Tiffany is so fast at making decisions which is so important when building or renovating a home when there are tens of thousands of decisions to be made! Tiffany took an outdated home and helped to turn it into our dream home.
Everything from the kitchen to the master bathroom to the guest rooms, even the paint colors feel like ultimate luxury to us, sometimes we still can’t believe that this is our home! Tiffany has such an eye for design, our home feels so high end while also being very unique and very “us”. She also knows where it is important to spend a little more money and where you can save. She was always looking to find us the very best price on everything which was always helpful in selling ideas to the hubby!
The only downside of working with Tiffany was that once our project was finished, we were sad to be finished working with her. Tiffany is such a wonderful person to work with, we would work with her a million times over! I often hear people say that they can’t afford a designer. We couldn’t afford NOT to! The right decisions were made for our home the first time and we couldn’t be happier with every single inch of our home. We couldn’t have done our renovation without Tiffany!! — Lindsey
