There is a small community of talented designers in Minnesota—talented designers who are innovative, creative, and well-connected—who are making names for themselves on a local and national scale. They know the ins and outs of decorating, from determining the color schemes to selecting the finishes. They can tell you what type of lighting will make or break a room, how to maximize storage space, and how to improve traffic flow. They have connections in the design world (many furnishings, fabrics, and accessories are available to the trade only) and the professional training and experience to help you edit the myriad of design choices out there. Perhaps most importantly, they can save you time and money by ensuring that you get the most design for your dollar—and have a fun experience—while transforming your space.
