RSJ Design Services

My goal is to incorporate your own personal style and affinities into your design project, leaving you with all the emotions you interpret as home – such as the feeling of warmth and comfort, being surrounded by the things you love and that represent your lifestyle, and most importantly, a place for you to gather with friends and family to reflect on memories and create new ones.

I offer an entire suite of services that fit many design needs and budgets, from full service interior design consultations, to one-day room makeovers and home staging/estate sales preparation.

Consultation

Ideal for individuals who are seeking creative advice and professional direction regarding an interior design/decorating project or complete renovation.

Personal Shopping

You know your room is missing something, but you’re just not sure what it is. And, you may be hesitant to spend a lot on a piece of furniture if you’re not even sure it’s what you need or will cherish in the long-term.

One-Day Makeovers

It’s easy to get bored with the layout of a room. Interior arranging is the latest trend in home interior design – totally recreating the look of your rooms using your existing furnishings, art and accessories and allowing you to visualize your treasures from a new perspective. My creative design expertise brings an objective eye to your rooms and the result is a reflection of your personality and style.

Real Estate Enhancement

Whether you are a realtor or home owner, I can offer assistance in preparing your home for sale (also referred to as “staging” or “home staging”) to help you visually broaden the appeal of the property and obtain its maximum market value.

Consultation

Ideal for individuals who are seeking creative advice and professional direction regarding an interior design/decorating project or complete renovation.

Robert will provide on-site advice regarding color, furniture placement and selection, window treatments, fabric choices, flooring options, art placement, lighting, as well as guidance as it relates to all renovations.

The design consultation is a “stand-alone” service. You are not required to retain us for the duration of your particular project. In some cases we might advise you that the project is not feasible and can suggest other ways to accomplish your goals. Lastly, we will arm you with useful knowledge and assist you in making an informed decision about your design options.

With only a few hours, together we can make great headway toward infusing new ideas and structure to your room. Adding fresh colors and a few simple accessories can bring the quick change you’ve been craving. It’s amazing how transforming your surroundings can invigorate you.

For clients who could benefit from custom updates to their room, I am affiliated with master craftspeople who specialize in creating distinctive accents to make your home stand out above the rest. These services include custom woodworking, murals and trompe l’oeil, faux finishing, custom drapery and bedding just to name a few.

One-Day Room Makeovers

  • Do you feel you have some good basics to start out with but crave a change that will enliven your room?
  • Do you have furnishings in many styles, colors and finishes and want to pull it all together seamlessly?
  • Is there one room in your house that just doesn’t feel as comfortable as the rest of your home?
  • Is there one room that you would like to use more often, but you just don’t know how to make it functional?
  • Do you want to update some older furniture to blend in with your other, newer furniture to create a more uniform appearance?
  • Is there one room that you enjoy entertaining in, but is just not arranged correctly to accommodate conversation as well as dining and seating areas?

It’s easy to get bored with the layout of a room. Interior arranging is the latest trend in home interior design – totally recreating the look of your rooms using your existing furnishings, art and accessories and allowing you to visualize your treasures from a new perspective. My creative design expertise brings an objective eye to your rooms and the result is a reflection of your personality and style.

How it works…

For the One Day Room Makeover, I initially meet with you in your home,and ask you questions that will help guide me in uncovering your personal style and design goals. On the day of the scheduled makeover, you are encouraged to leave your home while the transformation takes place. When you return, you will be greeted by a complete brand new look without the trouble or expense of a full-scale interior renovation. The result is not as much about each individual piece of furniture in your room as much as it is the creative fusion of elements and the way they are combined that produce dramatic effects.

Central to this process is the validation of the choices the client has made regarding their purchases, design style, and belongings as I work to enhance them, creating a cohesive, professionally-designed look that they are proud to show-off.

Personal Shopping

You know your room is missing something, but you’re just not sure what it is. And, you may be hesitant to spend a lot on a piece of furniture if you’re not even sure it’s what you need or will cherish in the long-term.

My shopping appointments can work many ways. First, I will meet with you to mutually decide what you would like to have or what would bring extra emphasis to your room. We’ll also talk about your budget range and timeframe for acquiring the new piece. Then, we can either shop together or I can shop independently to offer you recommendations on purchases of furnishings and accessories to bring new focal points to your room. Through my sources, rest assured that you will get only the best selection of products at the lowest prices, thereby stretching your budget further.

This service is ideal for people who:

  • Can’t decide easily what they want
  • Don’t have the time to comparison shop at many stores for the right thing
  • Are afraid to commit to a large purchase without a second opinion
  • Need help to identify a good value

REAL ESTATE ENHANCEMENT

Whether you are a realtor or home owner, I can offer assistance in preparing your home for sale (also referred to as “staging” or “home staging”) to help you visually broaden the appeal of the property and obtain its maximum market value.

Realty enhancement involves many processes, including de-personalizing a home so that it appeals to a broad range of buyer tastes and preferences. The desired effect is to help potential buyers visualize themselves and their belongings in the home. Other processes include evaluating your home for needed repairs or changes, proper placement of your furnishings to enhance the home’s positive features, followed by accessorizing to add props, furniture or other touches that improve the aesthetics of the home.

There are many other tricks of the trade I can incorporate to make sure that your home stands apart from the rest in the minds of the buyers.
