I get it. You've been down this path before with “decorators.”

You’ve trusted them with your vision and dollars only to be let down on both counts.

Maybe you fell into buying an entire room plan from a big brand store that promised “free design services” and it never felt like you. Perhaps you were swayed by an Instagram-able image of what looked like the perfect sofa, only to find it uncomfortable and virtually unusable after less than a year!

Or my favorite client story…You’ve bought (and returned) so many pillows, lamps, and rugs, that your partner probably thinks you have a shopping issue and frankly just doesn’t "understand what the problem is!" The whole decorating experience has been such a waste of both time and money and now you’re gun shy about letting anyone give you input. 

I understand and that is why my process is different.

Ideally, you want to see options and not pay mysterious up-charges.  You want to share in the experience, feeling like you can bring suggestions and ideas to the table too! You know you aren’t a designer, but the dreaming, imagining and internet cruising is fun!

And isn’t this supposed to be fun?

But somehow, it isn’t anymore, and you just want it done already so that you can focus on the things that really matter…

Meet Richelle Plett

Hi! Welcome to my interior design business. I work with homeowners and design professionals to make smart, beautiful, and INFORMED BUYING DECISIONS when investing in their home furnishings, ensuring they will be happy for years to come!

Design service is traditional style with face to face meetings or flat rate plans for clients who prefer packages. No budget is too small and great design is available in every price point! Every client’s project is unique - no cookie cutter, peer pressure design here!

Upholstery construction is my secret sauce! My design business has grown out of ownership in a vintage furniture store with an on-site upholstery workroom. I have personally sourced fabric and upholstery/reupholstery for over 2,000 projects in the Kansas City and surrounding area. That equates to about 30 pieces of upholstery out my door a month.

That's a lot of tushes and thousands of yards of fabric! I've come across just about every-single-thing that could possible rear its ugly head!

Here is how I do things differently

We start pretty simply. Every single project starts with a quick phone chat. I’ll ask you about your goals for your space, timeline, and budget. There’s no way to get around that one, sorry.

If you are local, we start work in the traditional way, with an in-home consultation where we will hit the ground running and I will provide lots of great ideas during our time together. If that takes care of your needs, great! If you decide you need more help with your project, we will draft a plan and move forward.

If you prefer just some ideas and a game plan you can implement on your own time, or you aren’t in the Kansas City area, we will work virtually with a step-by-step plan that you can easily implement on your own.
