“Pretty is as Pretty does!  Design Translation?  

Your room is only as beautiful as it’s beautifully functional!”



Are you longing for a warm, welcoming, family-friendly space in your home?  Do your beloved treasures not “fit” your current residence?

Do you worry a design professional will impose their style or tastes on YOUR home?   Perhaps you’re concerned that a designer will make you toss out the things you love?

Pamela specializes in creating comprehensive, well-coordinated design plans that include color, fabric texture and style. Most importantly she integrates her clients personal style and existing treasures with the requirements the space and function dictate.  Taking a client’s needs into consideration saves both time and money on a high investment project.

Pamela Sandall Design offers a variety of ways to assist you with your design project.  From full service, custom interiors to a convenient online decorating service, she is here to help YOU realize your design dreams!  She has years worth of experience in what is a trend and what is a long term investment and will help guide you to making wise buying decisions.
