“Carolyn Moriarty did a fabulous job with and for us updating the first floor of our home. She didn’t come in and say “this has to go” or “you have to change that” but she respectfully began by asking us what we were thinking of updating, really listening to understand us and our desires, to which she added her ideas and suggestions. Room by room we decided together what we wanted changed and often Carolyn shopped for the replacement items. One time we shopped together (selecting companionable Oriental rugs for the living and dining rooms) which would have been a huge challenge without her eye for color and pattern to go with our furniture, paint, etc. In the process with her, we learned a lot about scale and balance which we never considered before in decorating on our own.
