Experience the Joy of Designing Your Dream Home

Experience has taught me that interior design profoundly influences how we feel and live. Through numerous client projects and several personal moves with my husband and four children, I have witnessed the transformative power of a space that truly reflects your values. Such a space opens our hearts to giving, sharing, and loving more deeply.

My passion for color and pattern led me to earn a B.S. in Interior Design, but it was my love for people and home that inspired me to establish my own design studios. I began in Greenville, expanded to Atlanta, and eventually settled in Winnabow, North Carolina.

Throughout my journey, my mission to create beautiful, life-enhancing interiors has remained steadfast. Whether you are looking to remodel, build anew, or simply transform a room, I am excited to guide you towards a home where you feel uplifted, settled, and inspired.

Our Shared Values







Meaningful Experiences

Honest Relationships



From our creative process, to the interiors we deliver, to our hardworking clients, crafting meaningful and memorable experiences sits at the heart of what we do and why we do it.

Open and honest relationships are crucial to our success. This includes collaboration with our clients and partners and clear communication throughout each step of the design process.

Your home should be a place that reflects your personal values, elevates your lifestyle, and makes you feel good. Each of our creative interiors is inspired by you, refined and implemented by us.

We believe that high quality is peace of mind. It means enduring materials and furnishings, personal yet timeless style, and homes that are as comfortable as they are beautiful.

Heart for Generosity

Our clients have a unique spirit of generosity when it comes to sharing their homes with loved ones. We embrace a similar spirit of giving by donating 10% of our annual profits to charity.

Spirit of Fun

We’re professionals, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun! We’re a lighthearted studio of two that loves to make the design process enjoyable, friendly, and always personal.

“We are thrilled with the new look in every aspect, and it’s all because of Rochelle’s ability to listen to her clients, her incredible talent for presenting complementary fabrics, and her use of introducing various textures into a room. She’s enthusiastic, uplifting, and just plain fun to be around!”
