Nature Inspirations - Change It Up

Take a look at the two photos above ... do you see the changes? (click on the "read more" to see the photos a bit bigger) If there’s anything that happens in nature that is a sure thing it is this … change!   Nothing ever stays the same. Even though things can be somewhat predictable such as the leaves turning all different shades of green, red, yellow, orange, brown, and even purple, it never looks quite the same as the year before, does it? Besides witnessing the seasonal changes, we often purposefully change things around in our yards. We take out certain plants, add others, prune, shape, weed, and clean.  The inside of our homes deserve the same thought and care. It’s best to treat our eyes and senses to an ever changing environment, no matter how small the change/s. Always look for ways to add something fresh and new and remove something stale and tired. Things can be rotated in and out or simply moved to a new location. I tell my clients that when I come back into their homes a few years down the road I don’t want to see the accessories all in the same place and it's nice to see the furniture moved around now and then too. Our eyes love to be treated to color, texture, and form. Move things around and shake things up.  Happy November!

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.
