We want you to LIVE WELL in your space.
LWD believes that successful design is the art of using organizational and interior styling techniques to create an environment that is comfortable, stress free, beautiful and personal to you. It allows home owners to say,
"I love and feel at home in each room of my house!"
At LWD, we artfully use what you already have in new and fresh ways, while incorporating tried and true decorating rules throughout the home, so that when you step into your house you "feel home." You'll say, "This is it. This is the home I envisioned that is a perfect reflection of me."
What does feeling home look like? For LWD, it's a combination of eight things we analyze in each room in order to create a home you will love!
The "FEEL HOME" Design Philosophy
First Impressions-We will walk through your home room by room, taking note of our first impressions, what grabs us, what glares at us, and what gives us a feeling of home.
Eliminating clutter- The packing starts now, as we pack away a good percentage of everything in the room in order to create a more clean, open and spacious feel.
Emphasizing the positive while downplaying the negative- Finding your beautiful focal points, we will emphasize what we love about the rooms and hide or distract the negative aspects of the rooms.
Lighten Up- Focusing on lighting and color, we will make each room into a bright, warm and inviting space people can respond to.
Home Owner's Appeal- In order to "feel home," you need a home that is a wonderful reflection of you, your family, your life and what you love. We'll have you fill out our lifestyle questionnaire, so that we can create a tailored space for your family.
Obligation to yourself- Cleaning/Repairs- The dirty work speaks for itself but is many times overlooked because you've lived here for so long. These mental "to do's" can be draining. So, let's get rid of them by incorporating an organizational plan that is easy to perpetuate.
Modernizing- Updating your style and building simple accessories out of what you already have to create clean lines and form. In some cases, we'll recommend simple purchases to complete the look.
Emotional Connection Points- We create luxurious, personal spaces throughout your home that reflect your families lifestyle. A glass bowl of your favorite soaps by the tub, a tray for your coffee pot and favorite mug on the kitchen counter, a cozy reading space, an entertaining friendly yard -- whatever fits your lifestyle and needs, we'll go the extra mile.
