Paula was very patient dealing with a couple of decorating novices. She educated us on key design principles and coaxed us out of our comfort zone to achieve a dramatic transformation.

Truly an amazing designer, Paula took the time she needed to get to know me, understand what I wanted even though I couldn't put it into ‘designer speak.’ She... designed a home I had only been able to see in my dreams.

Here’s my belief: your home should be a place where you feel at peace, where you function effortlessly. It should portray who you are today, remind you of happy times from the past, and provide fertile ground for you to create new memories. A home should be a place you look forward to coming back to at the end of a long day. It should feel completely your own – your sense of self should envelop you from the moment you walk in the front door.

Earlier in my career, as a practicing psychotherapist, my greatest joy came from helping people discover their inner beauty and reveal it to the world. Now, as an interior designer, I do much the same thing: by marrying artistry, skill, and deep psychological insight with the principles and elements of quality design, I’m able to interpret my clients’ sense of self and help them reveal it to the world. Together, we transform their house into a home that captures the client’s inner beauty through elegant design and timeless pieces that say, “This is who I am.”

Here’s what you can expect when we work together:

  • You’ll get a unique design created just for you. I’ll work closely with you to create a design that’s tailored to your specific needs and style, by drawing from cherished elements of your life – past, present, and future.
  • You’ll understand how the design process works. I’ll demystify interior design for you, so you’ll always know what to expect. Throughout the process, I’ll educate you on the choices you face in clear, logical terms, enabling you to make timely, informed decisions every step of the way.
  • You’ll know exactly what to budget for. My services come with the Paula Grace Designs, Inc. Guaranteed Design Services Fee, so you’ll know ahead of time what the full investment will be, before you commit a dime.

The end result? A design you love, delivered with the service and quality you deserve.
