Countertop Review

This time last year I was packing up our house to prepare for our down-to-the-studs renovation in our kitchen, family room, and master bath as well as the addition of a screened porch. The family room wasn't originally part of the plan, but that's a post for another time. The kitchen was where I really had to plan and scheme, and, yes even fret, to stay in our footprint and budget and to get the function and look I wanted. I love a challenge like this, though, so despite some occasional frustration with my client (aka me! ), I enjoyed the process. A key "want" of mine was honed marble countertops. There are dozens--maybe hundreds--of blog posts, articles, and showroom sites that compare various types of countertop materials and their pros and cons. I read most of them and took notes from a lot of them in the months leading up to our start date. One of the most helpful things was visiting a sweet friend's kitchen, where I was able to ask questions about cleaning, a


Thanks so much for your interest in working with Town and Country House Design. I'm available to work on-site in the Greenville, South Carolina area or online anywhere! No matter where you are in the world or in the design process, I'm confident that we can achieve the inviting, collected, and polished look that says "Welcome home!" to your family and friends.

Let's start with an email. Let me know a little bit about you and what you'd like help with. I'll follow up with some questions, and we can see if we'll be a good match. (Although I don't offer full-service design work like construction/renovation, I can recommend some top designers in our area.)


In-home Consultation | $100 per hour
Whether you're needing a one-room refresh or looking for ideas for several rooms in your home, an in-home consultation offers inspiration and fresh, objective perspective. In two hours, we can move furniture around, consider color schemes, and prioritize projects.

If your furniture plan and color scheme are all set, a three-hour consultation is ideal for adding that final layer of lighting, accessories, and finishing touches that make your home inviting, warm, and welcoming.

Are you hosting a party, shower, holiday gathering, or other special event at home? Together we will develop a plan to make your home ready for guests, including flowers, serveware, and tablescapes. I'll help you craft a vision and the plan to implement it that will ensure your guests feel special. We can even talk menus!

Finally, if you're a new empty nester or retiree (or maybe just inherited a house full of furniture), I can help you decide what to keep and what to carry to the curb.


NEW! Quick Consult with Fresh Eyes
If you just have a few questions about sprucing up your space, this might be the perfect option for you. Maybe you'd like to refresh your bookshelves or re-style your mantel, or maybe you just need a little help in finding your vision for a specific spot in your home. If that's the case, then consider a Quick Consult. Send me a few photos and three questions, and I'll help you get "unstuck" with a nudge in the right direction. Sometimes, we all need fresh eyes and a sounding board! Just send me an email!

Interior Styling Plans for Individual Rooms
We'll start with lots of questions and answers and photos and measurements via email, and then I'll put together a plan that includes a shopping list; an inspiration board with suggested selections; and a detailed step-by-step plan of action. You'll send me your comments, and I'll send you a revised board with links to purchase. Then, you can implement the plan as your time and budget allow.

Pricing is as follows:
Entryways, laundry rooms, and powder rooms | $350
Offices, guest bedrooms, kids' bedrooms, bathrooms, screened porches | $550
Living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms, primary bedrooms | $650
Kitchens | let's talk first

Thank you so much for considering me to help you with your home. It's a great honor and one I don't take lightly. I want you to be so happy in your home, whether welcoming guests, kicking back with family, or puttering about on your own. I look forward to hearing from you!
