“If a man states an opinion and there is no woman to hear it, is he still wrong?”

So let’s take a few hours or a couple of days and together we will purchase those items needed to make your home the envy of the neighborhood.  THE SHOPPER doesn’t keep up with the Jones, you become the Jones.  I will be there, dressed in black, holding your hand through the whole enjoyable (no stress allowed) process.  Plus it’s amazing the beauty that two women can create when left unsupervised.  Mani & pedi optional….




“Good morning Sunshine.  Knew I shouldn’t have sold those pleated shades.”

Not only do blinds, shades, and shutters enhance the look of any window, they further provide style, light control, ventilation, energy savings, and capital improvement.  Offered in a variety of colors, patterns, weaves, and textures, little else completes the tasteful effect on a room more than these type of installations.  Having spent over two decades as one of the largest blind retailers in the Midwest (under my firm English Accents), few competitors can compete with our knowledge and fundamental understanding from measurement to aesthetic.




“When you live in a glass house, buying curtains might help.”

Draperies make a style statement and play an essential role in home décor.  They further reflect one’s taste and add meaning to a room.  From elegant panels to embellished swags and cascades, when chosen correctly, draperies relay a mood and a feeling unlike any other home purchase.  Laura Buhrer Interiors brings the showroom to you at a time that fits within your busy schedule.  We offer a multitude of fabrics in every possible color, pattern, and weave so that together, we may select a curtain that not only compliments your existing décor but elevates your residence into a whole new level of beauty.





“Optional garage to include piano…Depth of house does not include optional garage.”

For years our specialty at ENGLISH ACCENTS was NEW CONSTRUCTION. We worked with some of the area’s finest developers, builders, sub-contractors, and real estate agents. We still proudly offer that service. Whether the ground has just broken, cement recently laid, or framing up to show glimpses of what you wish to create, our firm will jump right in and help you choose the materials that best suit your style. Builder’s provide different vendors and we enthusiastically attend each and every meeting from flooring to lighting. We attempt to remain vigilant to all allowances but, as we all know, often difficult to achieve. We maintain meticulous notes of all selections and provide you, the builder, and realtor a detailed copy as well. We hold your hand(s) through the sometimes stressful process and nights and weekends are often greeted with our usual good humor if panic ensues. We charge by the square footage of the home and promise to create a bit of jealousy among those often pesky friends and relatives.
