We are experienced in designing complete rooms or homes, working at a pace that’s comfortable for your needs and lifestyle. Thanks to the Internet we can get started by shopping together for many things right from your home. We also accommodate clients who prefer to implement ideas at their leisure, as well as those who do their own shopping in phases and request consultation on their choices. We are happy to work with clients who require our input while they shop or those who want Done in a Day Decorating to do most of the planning and shopping with consultation taking place with the client before purchases are made.

We provide referrals for painters and other home services from our list of trusted home decorating professionals, with the option of having us manage your project as work progresses. Done in a Day Decorating has longstanding relationships with a wide array of professionals, including local furniture stores and those selling tile, lighting and other tools for home improvement. We bring in experts whom we trust.


Interior redesign

Interior redesign is our classic service; we work with most of your own furnishings while keeping new purchases to a minimum.
Interior design helps very stylish living areas We will first discuss your style, how you want to live in your space, what you like and dislike about your room and what you want to achieve for your room.

We will then empty the room of everything but the largest items so that we can start with a clean slate. Keeping in mind your personal style and desires for the use and function of the room, we determine the room’s focal point. Then, with your permission of course, we will “shop” your home for items that will enhance the transformation. With your existing furniture, lighting, art and accessories we create balance and harmony to transform the space into the inviting, functional, beautiful room you’ve been hoping for.

After the redesign, we’ll provide you with a list of suggestions for anything you may need to complete your new look. You can purchase the items yourself or use our shopping service to do it for you!
