I specialize in affordable chic & e-design. I love color, pattern, and finding the look for less. No matter your location or budget, I can help you! I'm a wife, mother, accessories wizard, art junkie, and fan of all types of design. I also work out of my house while also being a stay-at-home-mom to 2 young girls. So I know about being on a budget!

Yes, I now have a blog. Along with everyone else and their grandmother. Ha! But honestly, I think you're going to love Harkness Interiors. I specialize in AFFORDABLE CHIC. I’ve found in this bad economy that people still want to decorate, it just has to be on a budget. I love finding the look for less and that's what my company and this blog is all about! 

There aren’t many interior designers that work by the hour without retainers or who don’t sell high-end furniture and make tons of commission. That’s where my service comes in! I can pull together your grandmother’s dining room table with contemporary art and add decorative items found from Marshall’s. If you just need a 2-hour consult or a whole house done, I’ll work with you as little or as much as you need. If I had to pick a show on HGTV that is most like me, I’d say the High Low Project. 

Another unique way I’m doing business is by selling “room boards”. In this age of Internet shopping and sites like Pinterest, there is a desire for people to do a lot of the work and shopping themselves, they just don’t know how. You can see these types of boards I create and sell on my Facebook page. I create the room and if you want the product information to shop the room, I charge a $25 fee for all the links to products from that room. Or for $250 I can create a custom board just for you based on your needs and style. I can work with you over the phone and Internet and I can even provide scale room drawings if you send me measurements.

You can see my room boards at my Harkness Interiors Facebook page

I’ve owned my own decorating business here in Charlotte for over 2 years. I work out of my house while also being a stay-at-home-mom to 2 young girls. So I know about being on a budget! I have a few great affordable and easy DIY home projects as well. So keep your eyes on this blog....lots of fun to come!
