PORTFOLIO of INTERIOR DECORATING

Photo galleries below include projects I oversaw at six Skilled Nursing Facilities supported by Grace Healthcare Support Services.

Additionally, I managed each facility photo shoot post-renovation, then staged & shot all photos seen.

My goal with every renovation was to Create a Home-Like Environment for residents, families & staff.

Grace of Douglas - The Suite Life Assisted Living Implementation

In 2019, I led the creation & implementation of three private suites for this Assisted Living near Lake Michigan. The marketing collateral boasts "resort-style" assisted living with a nod to its lakeside color palette. Each fully-furnished apartment includes home-like amenities & has a private ensuite restroom. I designed the mood boards, floor plans, selected the furnishings & cost reporting, received budget approval, made all purchases (online & in person), assembled the furniture with staff assistance, & executed all finishing touches prior to my photographing for their website, which I managed.

Soddy-Daisy Health Care Center - Magnolia Room & Sequoyah Rehab Center

In 2016, I led my first room design with company-hired contractors under the supervision of Grace's former chief operating officer. The room had previously been an ice-cream parlor, which did not have the sophistication as did their lobby. I oversaw the floor plans, selected the furnishings & cost reporting, made all purchases (in person), & executed all finishing touches prior to my photographing for their website, which I managed. The room, used for resident activities and private gatherings, is now called the Magnolia Room.

 

In 2019, I completed the interior decorating, staging & open house planning for this facility's newly constructed 14,000 square foot Sequoyah Rehabilitation Center. Grace's former president purchased the resident room furniture, dining tables, sitting area furniture, & occupational kitchen table from a contracted furniture vendor. I completed the remaining vendor & retail supplier purchases, including antiques to add lived-in character to an otherwise uniform healthcare space. Additionally, I submitted cost reporting & executed all finishing touches prior to photographing.

In 2016, I assisted with furnishing & staging the newly constructed 14-bed skilled rehabilitation wing for this facility in Tennessee. The new wing features private suites, as well as a separate entrance into a sunroom with space for gatherings & a fireside sitting area surrounded by gorgeous

views. I made interior decorating purchases (online & in person), assembled the furniture with staff assistance, created the faux flower & succulent arrangements, & executed all finishing touches prior to my photographing for their website, which I managed. Additionally, I submitted cost reporting

& assisted with the Open House revealing the new state-of-the-art rehabilitation wing.
