Space Solutions


I offer consultation, floor plans and detail sketches or complete detailed plans for remodeling, renovation or new construction.

My expertise is solving the challenges that difficult space or budget present, as well as rearranging of architectural plans that do not quite work.

My process, developed over many years of experience, is the blending of careful listening, intuition and creative problem solving.

As your design partner, my role is to interpret and create your vision as a reflection of you.


The artistry is in the details:

The use of color, shape or materials like moldings, unusual woods, metals, glass and textures. Lighting, a favorite hutch or architectural treasure can create interest, style or ambiance.


I have never been so impressed with a designer as I was with Donna. She made space for a big island by taking out a pocket door and sinking the ovens and pantry cabinet into the wall. On the adjacent wall, she shaved space with a shallow lighted wine glass cabinet, and interesting pouring nook and a liquor cabinet below. It was amazing. Every piece fit exactly as she had indicated on the plans. The whole kitchen was beautiful and fit the old Georgian Colonial perfectly. I hope to work with her again.

Donna’s designs are divinely inspired. She can take a small space and create a work of art.

At our initial interview, we understood that we were about to create something special with Donna. With gentle questions and good humor, she gathered our information, listened with intent and even“heard” beyond our words. Our new kitchen was beautiful, timeless and truly original.

Twenty years later, as we complete our fourth kitchen with Donna, we still marvel at her uncanny ability to resolve space issues. Combine experience, a wellspring of creativity and a desire to satisfy and you have Donna, our “kitchen therapist.”

Donna was easy to work with. Honest, patient and interestingly creative. She really listened and asked us questions we had not considered. She helped us to arrive at what was most important to us, within a skinny budget. We feel like we saved not just money by having a plan to shop with, but we had an experienced assistant through our planning process.
