why empowered interiors?

Does the thought of interior design raise feelings of dread, confusion, anxiety, fear?

Are you excited about designing your home, but have no idea where to begin?

Have you thought about hiring an interior designer, but thought it was only a luxury service?

Interior design is indeed a service, but it does not have to be a luxury. When you work with e.i., you are getting partner in the process and the outcome will be a beautiful, well-designed home that reflects your personality, all within your budget. 

who is empowered interiors?

 empowered interiors began when Cheryl, a historian, became an interior designer. She opened her design studio and shoppe September 2018. As an interior designer, her background as a scholar and a historian gave her a unique perspective in interior design and in the home décor business.

Her shoppe offers vintage and contemporary home décor that bring uniqueness into a home. While she is cognizant of trends, she does not let it completely dictate what she sells. The home décor in the shoppe varies in price and reflects a uniqueness that can rarely be found anywhere else. 

As a certified color specialist, dedicated to evidence-based design, her intellectual approach influences her style by incorporating color and vintage/antique items with new home décor, she creates comfortable spaces that are inspirational and express the unique nature of her clients. 

She develops partnerships with her clients, providing solid advice, concreate plans, and in-trade recorses. She believes that interior design should not be a luxury service, but a service available to everyone. 

Don't we all deserve a well-designed home?
