You're a lifelong consumer, you already know what you like and dislike. You know what colors appeal to you and what styles make you feel comfortable, but knowing how to blend them into your home can be challenging. We've found that most of our clients are three quarters of the way to having the perfect interior design, they just needed us to provide that finishing touch and make it 100% them.
Our motto, "Focusing on the design that's right for you", isn't just a saying, it's a guarantee.

Transforming Your Space One Design at a Time
Meet The Team
We offer a new look for less.
We use the term interior stylist, because we believe everyone deserves a comfortable and beautiful home filled with things that are loved, honored, and cherished. It doesn't matter if it's a North Shore lakeside mansion, a Chicago bungalow or a south suburban tri-level.
Most designers put their personality into a project, we put the homeowner's. Our specialty is taking what you own, rearranging it all, and giving the homeowner a new look and feel.
Ready to sell the building you've called home? We will reverse engineer it by removing your personality and rearranging the furniture in your rooms. This will make the house shine and ready to be bought by a new family so they can put their belongs and personalities into it. Staging is more than what TV shows or a Realtor will tell you.
Already moved out - empty doesn't sell well. We have access to a large inventory of furnishings, accessories and art to properly stage your house to sell it faster & for closer to asking price.
Our team is made up of Susan Powell, who has worked in the Interior Design field for over 20 years, was the former President of RESA - Chicago Chapter, and is a design graduate of Prairie State College. Her daughter, Sam Powell, has been working with her since she was old enough to hold a drill. As Sam would put it, " Mum's the brains, I'm the brawn".
From initial contact to finished project, Susan was a delight to work with. She brilliantly used what I already owned and made the house shine. We received 2 offers in less than a week on the market, and the feedback from EVERY showing included how well the house presented. Worth every penny!
Recently completed staging in an investment property we own. Susan came in prior to completion and provided room by room recommendations on color that would work best for our target market. When it was time to stage, Susan and her team did a great job for us. She even threw in a few extras. Susan knows design, she understands what buyers want, and she's affordable. Hope to use her services on the next project.
Susan with InFocus Design, has wonderful design skills, She has a vision like no other designer I have worked with. We use her repeatedly with our different investment properties. She works really well with the contractor. Truly a team player and works in the best interest of her clients.
I found Susan through an online search for interior decorators in northwest Indiana. Although based in Illinois, she covers this area as well. Her web page gave me an idea of work she had done for others, and it seemed compatible with my own tastes. I received a prompt reply to my initial email and we set up a date for her to come to my house. I was looking specifically for paint color ideas and arrangement of wall art in my great room...
