I am looking for a Massachusetts-based interior design student (or a new professional who is just starting their design business) to work with me to create a warm, welcoming and functional home in my newly purchased Sudbury MA house near Boston. With your help, I'd like to do so cost effectively: I think great taste and creativity (that's what I need you for!!) can enable one to design beautifully and with sophisticated, bold flair...without breaking the bank. I imagine we'll buy many pieces of furniture "off the shelf" rather than building them custom. I imagine we'll find beautiful quality fabrics at fabric outlets nearby, and that we'll prove that fantastic design need not cost a fortune. I love color, sophistication, comfort, interesting accessories, and great warmth (no colonial look, please!) in a room. Because what we buy for the house won't cost a great deal, I'll pay you by the hour for your time ($25-$50/ hour, depending on your experience). In the end, I'll have a striking, beautiful home,and you'll have a great addition to your portfolio and a strong new source of references, especially if "cost-effective decorating" is a business niche you'd like to own. Up for this challenge?
