Hi, I'm Mary Brown and I'll be giving you a collaborative experience where you can get just the help you need where you need it. Whether that is expert advice, hands-on or virtual. 

I'll be using processes based on over 25+years experience as an interior designer, stylist, color consultant & stager that have made it much less stressful and way more successful for 100's of people.

I'd love to help you create a home that makes you happy or to DIY stage it to sell successfully. Here're the ways we can collaborate to make that so much easier:

Let's you stop guessing and start choosing colors with confidence! With large painted color samples & a step-by-step process, I'll create a color palette to fit your style & your home. And make it much easier for you to see how beautifully it all works. Your color palette will include everything your painter needs to know. More

Get personalized solutions while collaborating in a 4 or 6-hour in-home consultation. At the end, you'll have an actionable plan in-hand to expertly guide your decisions & selections for your homes' project. More

(If added to "Designer for a Day" this consultation is waived.) Let's you relax knowing you're not going it alone. More

Finishing Touches: Finish off your room & add the "wow" with accessorizing!  Have an in-home consultation, one day and styled the next. (I'll shop in between.) Time to meet your new room: Finished. Fabulous. Fast!

Complete Designer Rooms: Created with new furnishings (& any favorite pieces you may want to incorporate). Starts with an in-home consultation, then I'll source and present everything for your approval; next, you'll do the purchasing & lastly I'll return to style. And it's done, (to perfection!) More
