A Philosophy Rooted in Authenticity

At the core of Helen’s philosophy is the belief that every home has a story to tell. Her work is not about imposing a style but uncovering the narrative of each space and its occupants. This client-centered focus ensures that each project is as unique as the individuals it serves, with solutions that are both innovative and practical.

Helen’s commitment to excellence and ethical practice has not only garnered the trust of her clients but has also established her as a thought leader in the interior design community of Washington. Her involvement with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and her role as Vice President of the local chapter highlight her dedication to advancing the profession and mentoring the next generation of designers.

Beyond Design

Beyond her professional achievements, Helen is deeply embedded in her community, supporting local initiatives like the Mercer Island School Foundation, Mercer Island Women’s Club and hosting local workshops about design. Her engagement extends beyond business; it’s about building relationships and fostering a sense of belonging.

Helen’s journey is one of passion, dedication, and a drive to enhance the spaces we call home. Through Abode Consulting, she offers more than design services; she helps homeowners realize the potential of our living spaces, making them true reflections of who we are and aspire to be.
