What Makes River Birch Design Co. Unique

Taking You from Overwhelm to Excitement:

Your home renovation or build shouldn’t steal your joy. I proactively and transparently take you from overwhelm to excitement about the design process. I respect your desires for form and function, whether you have a vision or need help visioning. I harness more than a decade of industry knowledge and experience to creatively collaborate, project manage, and bring your dream to life.

Designing Functional Spaces and Creative Solutions for Everyday Living

Many interior designers aren’t well-versed in the architectural nuances that can make or break your dream home. I meticulously strategize your spaces while considering what’s practical from a build perspective. I love a good idea that’s well-executed and I’m well-versed in a wide range of design applications, from cabinetry to design details–including access to high-end resources.

Flexible, Adaptable, and Collaborative:

I operate based on what best supports your decision-making process, your schedule, and adapt quickly to change. I’m empathetic to the needs of each homeowner and builder, ultimately advocating for the best possible outcome through our collaborative process. Your home is where you live, sleep, eat, and entertain, so I unite us with creative, yet practical solutions to bring your dream space or home to life.
