A delicate balance between art, psychology, and functionality.
Kerrie labels herself as a perfectionist and it’s a title that fits when you view her finished product. When clients ask that a property/room convey a specific feeling or mood, she works tirelessly to ensure their vision comes to life in a way that not only meets but exceeds expectations. She understands that staging & design involves a delicate balance between art, psychology, and functionality and each decision she makes follows an intuitive flow that purposefully marries each of these aspects beautifully. Her work of creating inviting spaces that resonate with anyone who enters speaks for itself through a long list of satisfied clients, and homeowners.
