Praise for Charisse
A staple reference guide in my homes and often in use!
We live in an era of ever increasing stimuli that challenges the balance and sense of well-being we all seek. We also live in a time of great convenience in that we can invite the best of the natural world’s substances into our homes in a conscious, healthy, heart-centered way. We are nurtured, and become better nurturers to our loved ones and to the world beyond our own world as a result.
‘The Bathroom Book’ gives generously and comprehensively, as well as invites the reader into creative collaboration, again and again.
A staple reference guide in my homes and often in use! Enjoy!

She makes you want to keep renovating!
We have worked with Charisse for years now. We have done small projects - from hanging artwork and determining the best location for a child's bed to whole house projects. Charisse has come to the paint store the tile store and the department store with me. We have picked out paint colors, matching tiles and then off to get new bedding or fabric and pillows for furniture. I never feel rushed and I always feel part of the process. Charisse is professional, timely and dependable and has amazing talent. She has the ability to walk into a home and really understand and appreciate a person or family's need. Charisse notices everything - she has the ability to really tie an entire home together all the while keeping individuality alive in different rooms. She always includes all family members in the process, understanding that spouses and children want to be heard and have their opinions heard and incorporated into the final product.
We always get compliments on our fabric choices and our window treatments are original and beautifully made. We wouldn't know what to do without Charisse, she makes you want to keep renovating even after the project is long done!
