Getting the Most from Your One-Time Design Consult
- Unlike hiring a plumber to fix a leak, solving a design problem is far more subjective. Regardless, there are some strategies that can help make your “one time” consult a success.
Life on the D-List
- The reality for me is a little different than what I see and read in the pages of design magazines, and that's okay with me. A successful project is less about creating a magazine-worthy room than about meeting the needs of the client.
Scroggie Studio 3.0
- My goal with the new site is to showcase the kind of work I do so that clients have a gallery of styles to look at if they would like to pursue a custom furnishing order or discuss how I might be able to help them with their interior design needs.
Design for 2009
- From the inception of my Studio Scroggie, I've tried to provide affordable style to my clients—whether in my "reinvented" furniture that sells for a fraction of the cost of retail pieces, or in my interior design work.
Small Budget, Chic Taste
- From Megu Restaurant's upstairs lounge where you can see a few of my pieces (left), or in one of the apartments I've helped redecorate, I specialize in reinventing interiors and furnishings so that they have a fun and funky look.
Pretty in Paint
- Glazes, which I create by thinning latex paints with water and urethane, allow me to use layers to get much more interesting tones and dimension with my painted finishes.
- My baroque style red lacquered mirror is the most popular piece I've ever had. I still get people calling about it.
- My red side chest was truly a "reinvention" and I think was probably the best example of my signature style—fun and funky, but also chic and sophisticated.
Studio Scroggie 2.0
- It is taking some wrestling, but with a little patience and the help of Apple's iWeb software, I'm going to put even more functionality into this website.
