“As a professional designer, it is an honor to be invited into the intimate part of a client’s life: their home. I believe a home should reflect who you are and what you value; be a retreat from the external pressures of the day; a comfortable and safe place to share joys and sorrows with family and friends. Our experience shows a well-executed design provides all of that and joy to the soul!”
– Lisa DeFrances, ASID

“The Common Law of Business Balance”
“There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper and the people who consider price alone are that person’s lawful prey. It is unwise to pay too much but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money—-that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot—it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better”
John Ruskin, 19th Century English poet, fervent art critic
