a well-designed home empowers

a well-designed home empowers

When I decided to open empowered interiors, there were two goals I wanted to accomplished.

The first was to offer affordable and inclusive design services. There is too much emphasis and focus on luxury design. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with servicing a particular niche, yet how many individuals are left feeling they cannot afford quality interior design? e.i. aims to create your story through affordable design, while also empowering you by making you a part of the process.

My second goal was to open a shoppe that reflected my love of history and design. I want to offer my clients and customers vintage and contemporary home décor that you cannot find at At Home, Kirkland's, or Home Goods. I am a big fan of these stores, but when individuals visit my shoppe, they will find unique items, such as throw pillows and blankets, fun seasonal décor, decorative lighting. At the same time, e.i. offers vintage items from India and the Middle East, as well as furniture, updated and reimagined. Click here to see what you will find at empowered interiors.

So I invite you to come and visit empowered interiors during the shoppe's hours or contact e.i. and start on the path to having a well-designed home that empowers.

Testimonials

As I sit on the comfy and aesthetically pleasing new sofa in what was previously our “sunporch-mess-room”—and  which is now our “colorful-and-relaxing media room”—I am inspired to offer thanks to Cheryl from Empowered Interiors for instrumentally making this transformation possible. After years of unfocused tinkering, indecisions, poor decisions and general procrastination, Cheryl took me from 0 to 60 over the course of a single weekend, inspiring me with her concrete ideas, knowledge, beautiful taste and focus. What I loved about working with Cheryl was it felt like a real partnership in which she shared her knowledge and ideas as an interior designer while respecting my own personal tastes and helping implement my vision for a cozy and cheerful media room. Working with Cheryl, you can really feel  her passion for interior design and also her sincere desire to help you create the space you are dreaming of. This room that has now become our favorite would not exist without Empowered Interiors. Thanks, Cheryl and I wish you all the success possible! (It also doesn’t hurt to work with a smart, talented woman with a great sense of humor, so there’s that too!)

I never really understood why someone would hire an interior designer. Cheryl helped me see that pulling together a comfortable home that reflects our values and lifestyle requires thoughtful consideration that benefits immensely from an expert’s support. Cheryl listened to me talk not just about what colors and styles I like, but also about who we are and how we use our space. I have learned so much from her! Now I feel empowered to make informed as well as intuitive decisions about our home.
