shim.gif - 0.04 Kand SO glad you dropped by!

Decorating questions have you stumped? If so, you've definitely come to the right place as answering all sizes, shapes, and flavors of questions in this arena is my specialty. I'm "Sam" (no, not short for Samantha!) Jernigan and I recent marked a career milestone: 25 years experience helping people just like you turn their interior as well as exterior design dilemmas into stylish solutions and, more importantly, their house into a home they love.homepg_bnr.GIF - 78395 Bytes

My service is quite out-of-the-ordinary so I'm delighted to have this opportunity to explain the way I uniquely work with clients.

First, it's important to note that MOST decorators or designers are commissioned salespeople in some fashion or another. That's all well and good until you ask them for "advice." After all, what do you suppose their answer's predicated upon -- your best interest...OR...their need to make a sale? Not to mention the fact that their "advice" is also usually limited to suggesting only the merchandise their store (or studio) sells.

In contrast, I simply consult by the hour and do NO retailing whatsoever. So I like to say, I work for YOU, not "the store." In actuality, I serve as something of a consumer advocate in that I'm dedicated to saving you money wherever possible vs. maneuvering you into a given purchase like one of my competitors might. Instead, making smart use of your re$ource$ accompanied by your delight in your new or renewed living space is my sole focus -- plus helping you avoid CO$tly mistakes! And because I go one crazy (!) step further and actually give away my to-the-trade discounts, you'll want to LEARN more about this unique wallet-lovin' benefit of working with me regarding retail purchases you may be planning.

This excerpt from a WSJ article (left) highlights a couple's rather common dilemma in trying to negotiate the often bewildering decorating terrain together. This is one more benefit of working with a seasoned designer -- I can help s-t-r-e-t-c-h your decorating budget and create a customized and stylish plan for your lifestyle while keeping a prudent eye on the long term value and functionality of purchases or changes you're considering.
