Nature Inspirations - Hills and Valleys

The Northwest is an excellent example of the “hills & valleys” concept. OK, maybe I should say “mountains & valleys” when you consider all the mountains around us. The idea is that when you look into the distance you see things go up and down, get higher and lower. We also see this in the cityscape with taller and then lower buildings. Wouldn’t it be boring if everything was the same height? This holds true in our homes as well. When you scan your room do you have “hills & valleys” that sort of flow up and down around the room? This is good design. If everything is at the same height it’s somewhat unappealing. If you have a super low chair with a very tall bookcase next to it perhaps you need a piece of art that is sort of an in between height on the wall between the two pieces. This will help your eyes roll up to the top of the bookcase from the chair. Hope this helps. Happy end of 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.
