• The clients chose a grand, hundred year old home in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle, overlooking Lake Washington, to raise their family.  The home was extensively remodeled, maintaining the architectural elements, yet bringing in some contemporary elements to meet the clients' artistic sensitivities.

"Working with Virginia actually saved us time and money.  In an hour Virginia could help us make informed, high value choices that we couldn't have found on our own driving from store to store all day...It's been five years since we finished a complete remodel, and every day I delight in how warm and comfortable our home is.  When people ask if there's anything I would have done differently, thanks to Virginia, I can honestly say no." 

"Virginia really listens to a client's desires and intentions and is equally comfortable working in a wide spectrum of styles from classic to ultra modern."

- Alyx F., Seattle

"Thank you so much for everything...especially for making our house so incredibly comfortable and beautiful!  I really appreciate all of your talent and taste.  It was truly a pleasure working with you."

  • A traditional home in the Montlake neighborhood of Seattle is being renovated room by room, paying particular attention to the home's architecture and how each room is to be used.  Though each area of the home has been addressed individually over time, the home and garden read as a whole and are unified in both style and color.

"Virginia is a great interpreter of a client's lifestyle.  She collaborates well with architects and contractors to create a home reflecting each client's different lifestyle."

"We have come to choose Virginia for every design decision we make in our home and in our garden.  She has a knowledge of art and history that she brings to her design aesthetic."

- Shelley M., Seattle

"Virginia is extremely efficient when designing a home.  She is creative and provides an array of options consistent with the client's ideas and budget.  Her taste is impeccable, no matter what the price range, and her design choices stand the test of time.  Working with Virginia helped us expand our awareness of design possibilities, and her keen sense of color showed us the importance of color can play in a home."

  • A Craftsman home in the Ballard area of Seattle required a major kitchen remodel.  It was important that the architectural style of the home be maintained.  Cabinetry and finishes were selected with that in mind, creating a kitchen that functions well on a daily basis, as well as when the owners entertain.

"Virginia designed our kitchen to be both functional and beautiful.  She was skillful, resourceful, friendly, creative, and wise."

- Stephen C., Seattle

"Virginia has the ability to listen well and draw upon her many years of experience.  She does not have one particular style, and her breadth of knowledge is a great asset to her clients"

- Andrew S., Seattle
