Get to know Pamela Farnsworth Smith
My Ideal Client is a homeowner who has either just purchased a home, built a new home, or is getting ready to sell their home. In all cases, the homeowner needs a professional interior designer such as myself who has a wealth of experience and a good eye to creatively stage their home for living or for selling. My design services read like a menu a la carte, or can be an all inclusive offering to turnkey furnish your home. However, what's amazing about this menu, is that it applies and appeals to both your homebuyer and homeseller. They may select and customize the service they want, be it a one time "Enhance Your Design Views" consultation session to Home Staging or Full Service Design & Installation. I prepare an estimate after our first interview together.
Creating focal points of art, color and drama, defining proper placement of furnishings and accessories, and enhancing the home's spaces and architecture with design changes that will improve light, flow, balance and harmony within, are the ways in which I add value to the home. The common thread in all my designs is simple elegance, whether it be of traditional, transitional or contemporary styling.
My Home Staging resources for Monthly Rental Furnishings is local and trusted. My Home Staging for Living Vendor Resource Library is vast and diversified and will meet all Interior Design project needs. My team of subcontractors to get the job done properly and in a timely fashion are available and eager to please.
I have been a full time Interior Designer for over 30 years, originating from the SF Bay Area, having designed residences and offices from Northern CA down to Santa Barbara, as well as Staging Homes for Sale on the Peninsula. I have also participated in 8 California Designer Showhouses, and over 35 luxury model homes in golf and country club developments. My diverse clientele over the years from the states of CA, FLA, AZ, VA, and TX has given me a good understanding of what is "universally appealing" to both the homebuyer and homeseller. I hope to be your Interior Design team member and power partner....PAM
