“Peace begins in kitchens and pantries, gardens and backyards, where our food is grown and prepared. The energies of nature and the infinite universe are absorbed through the foods we eat and are transmuted into our thoughts and actions.”
I love designing kitchens. Their vital role as the hearth and center of the home means their design must function well, feel comfortable and inviting and nourish us in more ways than one. Balanced Interiors’ services include all aspects of kitchen conception from cabinet layout, door style and finish, type of countertop and backsplash, plumbing fixtures, hardware, wall color, seat cushions and window treatments.
“Each time you turn on the faucet, let it be a reminder to go with the flow.”
Bath design services include floor plans, selection of tile and pattern, selection of vanity and top, plumbing fixtures, hardware, wall color, and window treatments. Refreshing with a little quiet time and soaking in a hot bath can make all the difference in managing our often stressful lives. Bathrooms are where we need to pamper ourselves a little. After all, if we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we care for the ones we love?
“Your sense of space comes from what you feel, not just what you see.”
Computer-aided design and drafting is a vital tool in the design build process, enabling you to view your prospective space as both an elevation and floor plan. Careful dimensioning, allows me to architecturally create a new space on paper, place cabinetry and furniture and give us direction that enables us to make wise and cost effective decisions when shopping for furniture and furnishings.
Color Palette Consultation
“Did you know…that bringing in all seven rainbow rays into your home boosts your creativity and helps heal the body.”
Every project includes the selection of a color palette, making it the most popular of design services offered. Color can exert a gentle effect on the mind and the body, influencing our dispositions and our physical health. Color has the ability to trigger our emotions, affect the way we think and act and influence our attitudes. Balanced Interiors will assist you in choosing a color palette and coordinate the various materials for your new space from flooring, wall color, fabrics and accessories.
“When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars.”

FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES
“No woman can control her destiny if she doesn't give to herself as much as she gives of herself.”
Selecting the perfect furniture and decor for your new or existing space should be a reflection of who we are. What does your home say about you? I like to think of accessorizing as surrounding myself with my favorite things, and that’s how I advise my clients. It's their opportunity to let their personality come through. Small things can make a big difference and need not involve a major renovation or large outlays of money. Whether through fine architectural details, a soft comfortable throw or a favorite vase filled with cut flowers, creating a personal space where you can enjoy time alone or with family and friends is important to our well-being.
WINDOW TREATMENTS AND UPHOLSTERY
“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.”
Choosing a window treatment begins with an understanding of your aesthetic. Whether you choose curtains, drapes, blinds, shutters or sheers, or a combination of them, will depend upon what you’re trying to achieve with a particular style. If saving on heating and cooling is important to you, then an energy efficient choice is right for you. Protecting your furniture and accessories is always an important consideration as is light control and you privacy. Our consultations will help you gain the insight you need to achieve a look that compliments your home, functions easily and is cost-effective.
