SERVICES. Hill House Design Studio is a Minneapolis-based interior decorating and styling firm. Welcoming projects at any stage and of all scopes. 

BELIEFS and MISSION. Good design is about space, color, texture and light. Great design is about narrative; it captures the story of who you are, it shares who you are for yourself and those you welcome in.


The best part of design, for me, is working with clients to create beautiful, personal spaces that tell their story and give their house a greater sense of being their home.  Respecting the history of your home and designing within that context matters. Story-driven design elevates everyday life, and creates space for easy, joyful living.

I love color and pattern, and using both to create delightful spaces reflecting my clients lives. I also love that math is boring but makes design easy. Picking paint colors, specifying materials, re-energizing old furniture with good bones, shopping a house for art and collected treasures, the fun of creating new design and sourcing items that enliven rooms all work together for best results. A good floor plan and a solid furniture layout is a gold mine. Properly layered lighting makes a room. Helping clients see why things work together brings great partnership to the project. Giving my clients the context of why decisions are being made is important to me.  


I'm here to bring to life a vision that feels like you, even if you don't know what that exactly is.  My work brings me a lot of joy, and many repeat clients. 


Let’s tell your story.
