Welcome to Embellishments for the Home.

I am Colleen, the Owner and Designer of Embellishments for the Home.  Interior Design is my passion! I first graduated from John Carroll University with a degree in Business Administration. After working in the field, I realized that pursuing my passion for design was my calling and I simply couldn’t ignore it. I attended school for Interior Design and loved it! I graduated in 1995 from Harrington Institute of Interior Design in Chicago IL. I worked in a design company in Kenilworth, IL for over 5 years.  It was there that I designed homes on the very same street as the house in Home Alone! I decided to pursue my own business for design, and opened Embellishments for the Home Ltd. After living and working in the Chicago area for over 20 years I moved to Carmel Indiana with my husband, 3 daughters and our small dog Bailey. While in Carmel I have built two beautiful homes and designed each of them from the inside out. My focus is primarily on residential interiors which includes (but certainly isn’t limited to) the following services: 

  • Space Planning
  • Window Treatments
  • Furniture Selection
  • Paint Colors
  • Lighting Fixtures
  • Staging to sell 
  • Hourly Advice

I have an eye for balancing a room's style and mixing it up by blending the old with the new, elegant with casual for an end result of enduring timeless appeal. I have a true passion for color coordination and custom window treatments. Draperies complete the room’s decor and show off the owner’s unique style. It’s ideal to bring together different elements in a room. I aim to combine the owner’s lifestyle and tastes with the home’s character to create a timeless environment. I believe good design should strike a balance and bring out the home’s inner beauty.  My design goal is to reflect my client’s lifestyle and personality to make their house a warm and inviting place to call home. 

I have been creating interiors for as long as I can remember.  Even as a small child I would take the Sunday papers real estate section and study the flow of the home floor plans. It comes naturally to me.  Now I design and decorate for my own home and numerous friends and clients. I love working with clients to create a timeless, elegant, and classic environment in their homes. Design means so much to me, I believe everyone should feel proud and welcomed by the design of their homes. I love working with a range of different styles and helping homeowners create a space that is uniquely theirs.  

Whether you’re building your dream home; an empty nester downsizing; updating an existing décor, simply needing help picking powder room wallpaper or paint color, I'd be happy to walk you through each step of the decorating process in a unpretentious professional manner.  My goal is to make the process comfortable and fun while the real work is done behind the scenes where I use my expertise and network of resources to pull the look all together.
