Is this you?
– You have a room that just doesn’t work, but don’t have a clue on how to fit it?
– You’ve been pinning images of the “perfect” home, but can’t seem to get started?
– You just moved into a new apartment, and don’t have a clue on how to make your stuff fit?
– You get annoyed or frustrated every time you walk into the front door?
– You don’t want to entertain because you’re embarrassed about your home?
I can help you get unstuck and take action to create a home you love to come home to. And no, I won’t suggest you buy thousands of dollars worth of furniture.
My unique approach to designing spaces
With any project, I like to start by getting a clear sense of what’s important to you and the way you live. To “engineer” a space means to make function the foundation of the design. Paying attention to how a space is configured and used will create a home that feels comfortable, effortless to live in, and inviting to your guests. Once a solid foundation is built around function, then comes the styling elements that represents what you love and brings you joy.
When we work together, I will ask you a lot of questions because I truly believe you are the expert in what you like, and how you live. I always look for ways to utilize what you currently own, as often simply reconfiguring what you have can make a huge difference. There are many ways to accomplish the same thing, and my role is to guide you and give you a fresh perspective on your home, suggest other ways you could be utilizing your space so it works for you and how you live day to day.
Wether it’s finding a spot for a dedicated home office, or making room for a significant other moving in, I can help you make it work, efficiently and within a tight budget.
Taking the time to “Engineer Your Space” into a home you love means investing in yourself.
It’s not about buying into the latest trends so you can post beautiful pictures on IG.
It’s about creating a comfortable home that:
– allows you to live day to day effortlessly.
– welcomes family & friends.
– allows you to truly relax and recharge.
Utlimately, it’s about creating a home that inspires you to pursue your dreams.
Before working with Isabelle, I had no idea how I would be able to fit a home office into my small apartment. She helped me see what was possible and re-evaluate my priorities for my space and what I really needed in terms of furniture. Having her as a coach really motivated me to get this project done and I couldn’t be happier with the results – I love my home office and find my productivity has gone up when working at home since I’ve made the changes. The best part is that I have a designated space for working from home as well as an actual living room space to relax and host. None of this would’ve been possible without her help. I am forever thankful!
I was looking to incorporate a large home office setup that would not overwhelm my small apartment and I was having trouble figuring out how to do that. Isabelle created a floorplan that gave me the office space I needed with great ideas for how to screen the area when I’m not working. Not only that, by rearranging some of my other furniture , she was able to carve out a small dining area in my living room. Isabelle really understands the challenges of being a renter and working with a small space, and she is incredibly creative in her approach to designing a space that is functional and beautiful. I’m excited to try some of her DIY ideas, and I’m looking forward to working with her again on other areas of my home. Thanks Isabelle!
