I would love to show you the -way to live the life of your dreams!

But first, let me introduce myself. I was born in and have lived in the Central Missouri area all of my years. I started my work life in the restaurant industry while going to high school and Stephens College. Since graduation, I have spent the last 20 years co-managing small businesses with my significant other, Larry. All during those years, I spent my “free” time, working on home improvement projects, creating functional & aesthetically pleasing office environments for our businesses, and assisting dog rescue groups. Dogs are my other passion!

Over the past 15 years, I have remodeled 5 homes – from updating a basic ranch built in 1999 to the restoring/remodeling of a pre-Civil War historical home on a lot of 1.3 acres – all while living in them! The historical home was such a local success that I was asked to participate in the Christmas Home Tour and the l\Iaster Gardeners Home Tour.

Like most of us, I wanted a high-end outcome and look, but I had a limited budget. During these processes, I learned to refurbish furniture pieces, light fixtures, and other “dated” items into a functional, stylish, and current design/finish that was consistent with the style of each
home. I love to re-purpose a discarded item to become a functional, interesting, and beautiful piece again – to make the design perfectly unique!

Since I was a small child, I have always been able to organize and keep my “stuff” neat! Though some in my family think it is a character flaw, keeping the environment organized made living in the work zone tolerable. With the experience of the home renovations, I have
added many items to my skill set such as space planning, space re-design, and home staging. I am not afraid to change things up – at my house or at yours!

When I am not busy working in the business or changing things up at home, I love designing creative artwork~ especially work that reflects my love of dogs!

Let me help you with: space planning, organization, re-designing, editing, staging, seasonal decorating, wall galleries, accessorizing updates, giving old sturdy classic furniture a new look, and unique artwork. I introduce function to your space, add your personality and create a “wow” factor in your home! Let me be The Lifestyle Artist that helps you!

“After being in the construction business for over 40 years and having successfully achieved the independence of working on my own designs, I felt I knew the business in all aspects. Then I met Colette and realized I don’t know it all!

Perfect design includes:

  • Financial Accountability
  • Marketing
  • Construction Knowledge
  • Trendy Fashion
  • Appeal

Altogether, these factors put Colette at the top! When I want it right, I ask Colette!”

“My experience with Colette has been amazing. She is an extremely talented artist that is very easy to work with. She has done numerous pieces of custom furniture for my business Needful Things in Osage Beach, all of which I have been extremely happy with. Most of the furniture that I have sent to her giving her no direction. I let her do whatever she wants to with the items knowing that the pieces will come back looking their very best and will bring top dollar. I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to have Colette work on my things.”
