We are in our homes more than ever and our spaces should serve us by feeling peaceful and productive. But so often we feel irritated or overwhelmed entering our homes. Whether it’s a problem nook or a dysfunctional room, I’m here to help.
I specialize in increasing the organization, design and functionality of your space so you can recharge and feel inspired. Using 2D + 3D design, we set a plan for your room that you can visualize and address your design dilemmas, all while giving the room a cohesive style and saving “hunting” time with a sourcing guide for furniture and decor. I’m available locally on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Virginia Beach and Williamsburg, VA areas but most commonly serve clients virtually.
No matter what your life’s circumstances, how long you’ll be there, or how big or small the transition, opening the door, rounding a corner, or passing by a nook that makes you calm and inspired can help you move forward even when you don’t know where you’re headed. Through happy times and the most trying of times our homes are our sanctuaries. Now more than ever you deserve that feeling of organization, calmness and joy over your space!
I don’t believe in starting from scratch. I believe small changes can make a huge difference. I believe technology used well can bring efficiency and make things click visually. (read more About Me!) I believe in incorporating pieces that have a story with you. I believe that being organized inherently brings calmness. And I believe that very often our budget constraints are what lead to the very best creative ideas in our homes!
First, we’ll assess what you’ve got. A questionnaire followed by a design meeting will help us assess the challenges you’re facing with your space and where you’d love to go. We’ll figure out what pieces should be kept and what gaps might need to be filled to get the look you want. You’ll gather measurements and photos of the current space (unless we are meeting in person). Remember, if you can’t decide on which package is best for you, free 15min consultations are offered!
> Layout Design (2D/3D) – scaled plan to help you visualize the space, including where furniture, tables, chairs, lamps and artwork would all look best. (3 layouts provided)
> Style Guide – a guide to define a cohesive look that fits your space and taste.
> Sourcing Sheet – to speed up the endless online searching hours! I’ll provide pieces and sources (2 options for each)
So often we feel stuck because we feel alone – no game plan, and no one to ask! Together I’m confident we can get you unstuck. I’ve helped clients with traditional living rooms, city lofts, styled successful AirBnBs and summer cottages and even done layouts for coworking spaces and political headquarters. Together we’ve got this!
The PERFECT solution for the busy woman/mom! Based on numerous photos and a few measurements, Kerry masterfully helped us go from an eclectic collection of hand-me-down furniture to fresh, modern design, AND, she did it all on our budget! I work full-time and have three young children. I never have time to shop let alone shop with a singular vision for the room in mind – enter, Sweet Sanity! – Kerry was the key to my sanity. She sent me links (2 or 3 options per item), and I am convinced that I saved more money than I paid to Kerry because she saved me from making expensive mistakes and found great on line deals.

You brought so much value by the amount of time you saved us finding items, savings on the items themselves, not to mention, saving us from ourselves! Your eye, creativity & sensibilities go beyond words. Your ability to “get us” and then mesh our likes/dislikes to bring us into style was awesome. You know me, I am a skeptic when “renovation project” is mentioned, but truly enjoyed our projects and actually had fun!
