By way of very brief background: the original part of our house was built in 1846, and subsequent additions have retained the antique feel to the home. We don't have low ceilings but we do have wide floorboards, some smallish rooms, and the usual quirks that older houses tend to have. We were aspiring to create a modern farmhouse vibe in the house which we communicated to Tess, and we're very happy with the rooms she helped transform. Some of the furniture ended up being of the mid-modern style - which we originally didn't think would fit but the pieces she suggested really worked. Also, it was very much a collaborative effort, where she would show us some ideas for a light fixture or a rug, and we would then riff off that idea to hone in on something that we felt was perfect. One of the added bonuses was that she knows a LOT about where to source pieces based on your budget - we were sort of stuck in a Pottery Barn rut so it was nice to expand our options on that front. Lastly, we love the colors she chose for the rooms - they look so much better, and she spent considerable time playing with paint swatches to select the best option. Overall, it was a very positive experience, and we would definitely use her services again for future projects.
