An Interior Design Blog? Get Real.

People tell me I need a blog. I'm also told it's time to overhaul my website. Over and over I hear how important it is to post on social media.  And don't forget to have a profile on And the IDS (Interior Design Society) website. And on it goes.

I'm not cut out for this kind of "work".  It's definitely not decorating a home or designing a pretty new kitchen! That I can do.  Writing a blog and doing those other things doesn't feel "real" to me so perhaps that's why I struggle with getting them done.

I've decided to put down on paper (so to speak) what I'm thinking in regards to my work and get real with anyone who takes the time to read my blog. There may be some design tips, tricks, and latest news included in the blog every now and then, but don't expect it. That kind of information is floating around all over the internet for you to access and I feel that anything I have to add to it won't really be all that earth shattering.

But, for anyone interested in:


their home



what's it's like to be a woman with a small business (and I mean small!)

client relationships

seeing beauty around you


pretty things


the reality of interior designers and decorators


random thoughts from a girl named Lorraine


stick around.  I'm asking you to stay and read and respond ... when you are in the mood. That would encourage me greatly.

I need encouragement. How about you?  No matter what your job is or your life consists of, we can all use an encouraging word and a friendly face. Something real. 


I want this blog to be something real. I really do. 


Happy October.

I'm Moving

In June I'll be moving my home (and office) to Skamokawa, Washington. I'll still be providing the same services I have been in the past but will have a bit more of a trip to get to some of my clients. My phone number remains the same but my mailing address has changed.

New Address:

Lorraine Interiors
PO Box 99
Skamokawa, WA 98647


Often, the hardest part of a project is getting started or getting finished.  Lorraine will work with you to accomplish both if needed. Appointments are set up in your home or office, making if very easy and convenient for you.

Design Fees

Many designers choose to hide their fees.  Lorraine charges $100 an hour. The initial consultation is collected at the time of service in the form of check or cash and the appointment must be a minimum of 1 1/2 hours. If the appointment takes less than that there will be a $150 fee charged regardless.  Trip charges are incurred for anything over 15 miles from the Lorraine Interiors office.

A further explanation of fees will be discussed at the first appointment with a written explanation handed to you so that you will know what to expect.
