Design Services

For homeowners in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Greater Twin Cities, and Nationwide.

From space-planning, architectural details, finishes, fixtures and furnishings, we work together to provide a beautifully customized space that is uniquely yours.

 

Don’t settle for the builder-basic cookie-cutter version of your home. Let’s tap into the full design potential of your living spaces through detailed assessment, collaborative design and attention to detail.

 

 

Design and consultation services are available in-person and virtually. If you aren’t located in the Twin Cities, I can still create a beautiful space with you via video conferencing, emails, document sharing—and of course—on-site visits.

90s Kitchen Remodel

Client Love

“Five stars might not be enough. From the very first meeting to the final walk through, I felt like I was Carla’s most important client. We completed a 7 month remodel and I was very nervous about all the selections and choices that would need to be made as someone who doesn’t have an eye for design. Carla streamlined all the selection meetings and empowered me to make the best decisions. Even coming to my rescue after hours when unexpected issues arose with contractors or the overall plan. I have already recommended her to close friends in the midst of a new build. You won’t be disappointed.”
