also be functional, comfortable,

I love Lee. She has a vision - trust it! She suggests ideas that never entered my head and once they are executed I wonder how I could have lived without them.

We greatly enjoyed working with Lee! We did the Strategic Design Consultation, where she helped us pick paint colors for the walls and created specific, actionable plans for our whole first floor. She listened to our style and had great ideas for both short and long term ways to make our home feel more elevated and more like us!

We have used Contented Interiors for two projects in the last two years. The process was made easy by the team and the end result in both projects is absolutely wonderful. Updated and personalized. Just terrific!

Getting interior design help can feel intimidating but not with Lee. She offers multiple levels of service to accommodate a variety of situations and clients. She is high energy, professional, knowledgeable and approachable. In one strategic design consult, I was able to have many questions answers, get a firm direction and plan+ paint color suggestions for a project at my house. I highly recommend her!

Highly recommend Contented Interiors. I am picky and have high expectations and Lee exceeded them. Lee is the nicest person to work with on projects. What I appreciate is that I don't have the biggest budget, but she worked with me to maximize it--I actually feel as if I saved money in the long run. I love that she is willing to take on all sized projects. Lee renovated our powder room and boys' bathroom. Our powder room is gorgeous, and loved, loved the wallpaper design, window treatment, lighting, mirror, and the whimsical art. The boys' bathroom is so much more functional, and Lee was great interacting with my kids and making them feel special and included. Lee also designed our office, adding beautiful cabinets to hide supplies (and overflow of kids' toys!), incorporated existing sentimental furniture, and somehow made the space feel bigger. We loved all of Lee's work with these rooms so much that we asked for her help in picking out new lighting fixtures throughout the house--a little something that makes a big difference and brings me joy. She also helped us pick out a new couch and rearrange our furniture in the family room--the flow is so much better! I now consider Lee a friend!

Lee is fantastic to work with. We moved into a new house and there were so many decisions to make it became overwhelming. She helped me focus on each room to completion while keeping in mind the overall connection to the home. The end result is a cohesive feeling and flow. She helped with floor plans, reusing furniture and restyling furnishings, shopping, color selections and so much more. She helped me avoid costly mistakes and made it fun!

I had a small living room and she gave me just a few minor ideas that made a huge difference. An accent wall, furniture arrangement and some decorating made it seem like a whole new place.

This is probably the best investment I have ever made. My blood pressure drops instantly when I walk into my (newly furnished) house from work.

Zach, Henrico, VA

Rare is the day that [we] do not mention to each other how much we enjoy our new home! You took your highly developed sense of style and skills with [furnishings and architecture] and combined it so wonderfully with the styles and look we were hoping for. And when you add your professionalism and the positive and proactive way you handled those normal, expected challenges, we are not just happy with the final product, but also the experience of working with you on this.

We are truly contended!

Mike, Midlothian, VA

Lee is a talented designer. She is professional and prompt. She transformed the rooms of our home into peaceful, comfortable, coordinated havens – with great accents and color choices. Lee always stayed within the budget and time-frame boundaries we wanted. She hired great contractors. Lee is a consistent, talented, organized professional and is a joy to work with!

Julie, MOSELEY, VA

When Lee came into my home it was in a chaotic and unhappy state. She understands color and light like no one else I’ve met and help me understand how I respond to both. After several months of patiently working with me through a difficult renovation I am thrilled with the results.I feel at peace and love my new space!

Carolyn, MIDLOTHIAN, VA

All I can say is WOW! Although I knew all the selections, it was jaw dropping to see it all put together. It was a long road to get here, but to see the finished product it was well worth it and exceeded my expectations. My family came over later last night and was blown away.Thank you again for a job well done!

Phil, NORTH CHESTERFIELD, VA

I can’t recommend the Chic, Kid-Proof course enough! Lee IS NOT your average instagram amateur providing surface-level decorating tips; I consider myself a competent decorator already but was REPEATEDLY IMPRESSED at all the new things I was learning from her educated, professional knowledge of design that made a shocking difference when applied! This course is already a great price, but an especially good value considering the concepts can be applied to multiple rooms in your home. If you prefer DIY, this is the best use of your money.
