Custom Interior Decoration for Your Space, Your Way

What is Universal Design?

Lynne_Maxfield-ColeHello!  My name is Lynne Maxfield-Cole and I have resided in Harrison, Maine for 30 years.  I own and operate a full service interior-decorating design center located in Auburn, Maine called DECORATING PLUS.  I am excited to tell you that this will be the first of a series of articles that will provide tips and information to inspire your next home project. In addition, this is your opportunity to ask me questions that I will respond to.

Let me ask you a question:  Will you retire in your home and still have livability?

As a Universal Designer, I will take your current environment and create a plan for tomorrow.
Universal Design allows us ALL to stay in our homes longer.  It increases real estate value while maintaining the decorative integrity of your home.  My role is to present as many options as appropriate and to allow you to make decisions based on your individual needs.

Many times I am asked, “What is Universal Design?

Universal Design takes us out of the box to create spatial areas that enhance the quality of your life today and for many years to come.

Whether you are confined to a wheel chair or have other physical/emotional challenges, your home should be the one place that is cozy, friendly, and relaxing for the entire family, while at the same being safe and functional.  I enjoy working on large or small projects and those that may be done in stages to accommodate your budget and lifestyle.

Over the years, I have become an expert in many areas in the field of interior/exterior design: to name a few — color, fabrics, spatial planning, project management and most importantly, customer relations… I welcome the opportunity to share, learn and grow with you for years to come.

Now that you know a little bit about me, I’d love to learn more about you!  Please send me your questions and thoughts that you may have about your next home or office project!
