“Terre converted my rather dull insurance office into a place that is more vibrant and inviting, not only for our customers, but for myself and my staff. She helped enliven each desk by adding hints of red as well as charming plants. The bathroom and eating area were both spruced up with eye-catching artwork and lighter-colored walls, which helped brighten otherwise dim areas. Overall, I would highly recommend Terre to anyone looking to redecorate and not knowing where to start!”

Terre Griley is an Interior Re-designer extraordinaire! I have had the pleasure of utilizing her creative eye to design and decorate my living space.  I live in a small, studio apartment yet her ideas of style and colors have made my home feel grand! Her use of textures, colors, furniture design tend to come together in a way that creates a space of comfort yet uniqueness. She combined antique with modern furniture and somehow made it look like they simply belong together. She listened to what I had in mind and made design suggestions that really added flair! It is fun to watch her process. Terre takes the blank canvas of a room and creates an art piece…to live in. I HIGHLY recommend her services. Allow her design talent to create a space you’ll love to live in, too!”

Terre has a strong sense of personal style but was able to prioritize my aesthetic and refine my personal ideas with her discerning eye and taste. I’ve learned to trust her because the results are even better than I could have ever imagined. For example, in choosing wall paint color, I had misgivings about some choices, but I have no regrets once I saw how amazing the rooms look. She’s able to create a mood in a space that is a harmonious breath of fresh air.

She can help you make decisions on what items to prioritize based on your budget. She won’t try to sell you on every top dollar item, just the crucial ones, because great style can come from anywhere! She picks accents and objects that are unique and spark the imagination and have their own story to tell. She knows the history of all the styles and references she uses in your space, so I feel like I know so much more about the rich history of the objects I live with now!

Terre is very resourceful and can find anything on any budget. Regardless of how disorderly or cluttered your space is, she can see past that and can envision what its true potential can be, then she makes it happen! Hire Terre, it will be the best thing you ever do! She’ll create a space you’ll never want to leave!”

As a Realtor it’s mission critical to have a home staged in an inviting, engaging, comfortable way that looks realistic and truly reflects the spirit of Home. Terre has staged multiple properties for me and each time she’s been thoughtful and deliberate in her approach.  She assesses the lighting and structure of every room to maximize flow, and when photographing and showing properties to potential new owners that is a must! What I like best is that Terre considers the current owner’s life and lifestyle, and often repurposes the owner’s current decor to create the most organic, pleasing, and comfortable changes. This means the home has spirit and isn’t a cookie-cutter copy of other houses, and delivers a personalized visual message. I couldn’t be happier with Terre’s vision and work ethic, which is dedicated, friendly, professional, and detail-oriented. Terre delivers the gold standard of customer service!
