Interior Design


At Decor Designs, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful home!

We provide a wide range of solutions to address most decorating dilemmas and help you create your own stunning spaces. Regardless of the size of your project, we’ll customize a plan that fits your needs, style, and budget.

Whether you’re decorating, redesigning, or staging your space, we specialize in repurposing and reusing as many existing elements as possible.

Spacious layout with harmonious, functional furniture. Benefit: Improved flow and usability.


Interior Decorating

While we still make the most of what you already have, our Interior Decorating Service offers you the opportunity to replace old, worn out, or outdated items or simply incorporate a few new ones. We work with you to create a new vision for your space personalized for you and your family. Then, we will help you source the perfect additions to bring your space to life. With access to resources and discounts not available to the general public, we give you an even greater opportunity for detailed space planning and a more cohesive design.

Whether your decorating project means starting from scratch or simply replacing certain items, we will help you make the most of your budget by sourcing items for you based on your style, plan and budget.

Decorating projects might include one or more of the following: new wall color(s), flooring, fixtures, finishes, window fashions, lighting, furniture, artwork and accessories.

Interior Redesign

Our Interior Redesign service provides you with the “designer” look you’ve always desired by reusing, repurposing, and restyling items from your home.

You may already possess what you need to create a stunning look that you and your family will cherish. Our Redesign Service maximizes your decor by reusing what’s already available. If there are a few missing elements, we’ll assist you in identifying them and determining where to incorporate them.

To complete your redesign, our team of well-trained and experienced professionals follows a proven system. Initially, your space is thoroughly cleared to assess its hidden potential. Subsequently, we reconstruct the room through a step-by-step process. The outcome is a more inviting, attractive, and functional space that reflects your family’s preferences and lifestyle.

Interior Redesign is inherently eco-friendly, contributing to environmental protection. Given the significant daily waste of household items in landfills or through burning, preserving items from entering the waste stream is increasingly crucial.

Revamping with your existing possessions encourages you to perceive your home in novel ways. Repurposing your accumulated treasures gives you a fresh look while also saving you money!



Real Estate Staging

Real Estate Staging is far more than neutralizing, de-personalizing and de-cluttering. It’s all about “getting them in the door”, intentionally decorating to market and sell your home.

Our Staging Consultation includes direct, constructive feedback about your house. In other words, we’ll tell you what most buyers won’t. Then we offer suggestions on ways you can accentuate your property’s best features and enhance its visual appeal to attract the largest group of potential buyers.

Our Professional Staging Service, usually completed in one day, offers hands-on expertise. Our team will complete everything covered during your consultation and more. Making the most of your existing decor, we put the finishing touches on your listing. Merchandising your property, using many of the same techniques retailers use, our Professional Staging service insures that the best aspects of your home aren’t overlooked or ignored.

Color Consultation

Choosing the perfect color scheme for your home poses one of the most daunting decorating challenges for homeowners. Our Color Consultation service is designed to remove the guesswork from this task.

In addition to helping you select the ideal colors for your home, we will suggest the appropriate finishes and products to ensure your long-term health and enjoyment of your newly painted space. After your consultation, you will feel confident in the palette we have created for your space, complete with complimentary, large samples for your records or to share with family, friends, and contractors.

We proudly recommend Sherwin Williams™ and Benjamin Moore™ paint products, but we are also happy to collaborate with any other manufacturer of your choice.

A fantastic paint job with the perfect colors is truly the simplest and most affordable way to harmonize your decor!

So much to say! Jeff exceeded our expectations in every way. He is creative, collaborative and patient while also methodical and detail-oriented. And just so much fun! As we had requested, he gently set us straight and back on course when necessary, keeping us out of trouble and saving us money. Our rooms are stunning and came in under budget. Can you tell we are thrilled?!

We want to express how happy we are with the decorating service provided by Jeff at Decor Designs. From the very first consultation, Jeff made us feel comfortable with his knowledge and professionalism. He was able to grasp our traditional style and work with that instead of pushing his ideas on us. He is very up to date with the current trends and made suggestions that we love and wouldn’t have thought of ourselves. We also appreciate Jeff’s ability and willingness to work within our budget and he utilized items that we already owned, thereby saving us money. Thanks to Jeff our house now feels like a home with a wonderful combination of style and comfort. Jeff is fun to work with and we would highly recommend him.

I first met Jeff through a paint color consult for our house. We quickly decided to hire him to help us with what he accurately deemed "identify crisis" in several rooms, ok, all of them! His style is to incorporate old and new and he really helped us take it up a few notches to refresh rooms individually, yet have common, subtle threads throughout. I gravitate toward an eclectic style and he incorporated that side of me, in a very tasteful way. Who knew decorating could be so much fun?! I cried tears of joy when the first bedroom was completed and thought, WOW, this man really gets me! Both my husband and I learned a lot about layering, colors and textures. It was a collaborative process and we highly recommend Jeff to work his magic in your living space. His experience and talent are exceptional. His services were on time, on budget and it's refreshing to have a vendor who communicates well! My only regret, if I can call it that, is that I've run out of rooms! :)

Jeff was absolutely wonderful. He came out and gave us direction, which we desperately needed. We are going to make the changes he suggested and have him come back out. I highly recommend.

Loved our experience with Decor Designs! We met Jeff when we bought our first house and needed to get it painted. The painter we used offered a free consultation with a designer (Jeff) and we hit it off with him right away. The way he approached color selection was so thoughtful and he was so open sharing his knowledge with us that we knew he would be wonderful to work with for design services. Because we had purchased our first home we had a lot of work to do to fill the space and we knew it would take forever to do it all ourselves. My husband and I have very strong opinions about design, so we were initially hesitant about entrusting the look of our home to someone else, but we were busy with our jobs and family and felt like we needed the help. We needn't have worried. Jeff was amazing right from the start. He took the time to really listen to not just our preferences for design but also our day-to-day needs (we have young children, so some things we would have loved wouldn't necessarily have been practical right now). He involved us in all major decisions (big furniture pieces) and was so patient while we were being selective, and then he kept us informed when there were delays in shipments. He also responded quickly to any questions we had throughout the process. For all of the smaller items, he did the shopping and selections himself, and when it was all ready he did a big reveal where he staged our home HGTV-style. I was shocked that he was able to nail our styles so well. He managed to balance practicality for our young kids with elevated style and I genuinely don't know how he did it. Oh, and he stayed within our budget! I cannot say enough good things about the entire process, about working with Jeff, and about the final product. We will definitely use Jeff again for all future design services and will recommend him to everyone we know. Thank you, Jeff!

We purchased a brand new home and asked Jeff to help us. We could not have had a better experience. We had never had someone decorate our homes before and we were so impressed! He took the time to find out what we would like, which made our experience even more wonderful. Each room was decorated with such care - and - for US! We highly recommend Jeff and Decor Designs. Inc. Definitely 5 Stars!

Jeff decorated our dining room, living room, and master bedroom. The rooms look just beautiful and even better then I imagined. He not only has such an eye for design, talent and great taste, but he did an amazing job listening to our wants and needs in terms of style and it couldn't have turned out better. We are a elated!!!! Thank you so much Jeff! We’re so excited to live in such beautiful rooms that look like they could be in a magazine!.

Jeff is extremely talented and professional. He delivered a pottery barn look at a home goods price which is exactly what I needed. He even reused a few pieces to make it as affordable as possible. I am so impressed with how the space turned out and he even came in under budget! I highly recommend Decor Designs and will be using them again for another room!
