Home Refresh or Small Upgrade | wall, room, or space
Home refresh consultations are the perfect solution to an ever-evolving space. If you love your decor but don’t feel it lives up to its fullest potential, Kim Colwell can breathe new life and energy into your space no matter how challenging. Able to work in any style, Kim helps you express your individuality by styling a space that has your personal stamp on it. Our home refresh service makes a big impact in timely and affordable ways – from showstopping art walls and dramatic wallpaper effects to stylized shelving, occasional tables, throws, rugs and pillows. We’ll start with all the great pieces you already own or bring in new investment pieces to add to your collection. Either way, it’s a transformative effect.
What To Expect
In your consultation, we’ll talk meaningfully about your aesthetic, needs and lifestyle goals. You’ll receive a wealth of creative and practical solutions to refresh your space, solve design dilemmas and create the “feel-good” ambiance you’ve always wanted. You may choose to address one specific area of concern or reinvent your entire space without incurring the effort, stress or expense of a full service design project.
