Giving Gifts - Creativity, Comfort, Convenience

“Creativity, Comfort, Convenience” are words that I have had written on my business card ever since Lorraine Interiors began.  My goal is to offer my clients these things as I work on their projects. I got to thinking about these words in terms of gift giving, since this is the season for it.  Here are a few suggestions for us all.


Creativity:  Everyone can be creative in some way; you can do this!  How about gIving a pre-planned out day filled with a new experience? Make something with your own two hands.  Give the gift of time spent with your loved one. Maybe that involves sitting on the couch and simply listening to them talk all afternoon. This is an especially creative and perfect gift for grandparents.


Comfort:  Wow, this one can mean lots of things. What about a massage?  New sweats?  A deep conversation with someone to assure them how much you love them. Snuggling while watching your favorite movie. A tremendous meal full of comfort foods!  What does comfort mean to you? Now go ahead and think what comfort would mean for someone you love.


Convenience:  This one can really get your mind spinning. How about a gift certificate for house cleaning or yard service? Shopping for and delivering groceries for someone. Offering to pick up and drop off a friend for a particular monthly event.  Picking up dog poop (I know, gross) or caring for someone's pet while they go away overnight. Ok, let's not forget how convenient a new car would be!

Whatever you decide to give this holiday season always remember that YOU are the best gift. Be present.

Merry Christmas

I'm Moving

In June I'll be moving my home (and office) to Skamokawa, Washington. I'll still be providing the same services I have been in the past but will have a bit more of a trip to get to some of my clients. My phone number remains the same but my mailing address has changed.

New Address:

Lorraine Interiors
PO Box 99
Skamokawa, WA 98647


Often, the hardest part of a project is getting started or getting finished.  Lorraine will work with you to accomplish both if needed. Appointments are set up in your home or office, making if very easy and convenient for you.

Design Fees

Many designers choose to hide their fees.  Lorraine charges $100 an hour. The initial consultation is collected at the time of service in the form of check or cash and the appointment must be a minimum of 1 1/2 hours. If the appointment takes less than that there will be a $150 fee charged regardless.  Trip charges are incurred for anything over 15 miles from the Lorraine Interiors office.

A further explanation of fees will be discussed at the first appointment with a written explanation handed to you so that you will know what to expect.
