Fast and Frugal Interiors
Have you ever watched a home improvement show on television and wished someone could help you freshen up your space, or fix the things that just don’t work?
That’s exactly what Theresa Clements does at Fast & Frugal. Clements has been in the interior design business for more than 25 years, originally as an owner of Galloway’s, Clements and Associates in Royal Palm Square. There, she had what she calls “a dream team” of architects, designers, builders and contractors, all ready to work on major projects.
Fast & Frugal is a spinoff of sorts, targeting the everyday homeowner who wants to make a home update but needs the help of an expert. She says, “I’m trying to reach people who wouldn’t think of a calling a designer.”
If a home consultation is all you have the budget for, she’ll come in and decide on a game plan, giving you a road map of where to go and how to achieve exactly what you want.
If you need more direct assistance, the designer says, “Get on your running shoes, were gonna work.” She’ll take you to furniture, consignment and home improvement stores to find the perfect pieces, paint colors and more, all within your budget.
About her job, Clements says, “It’s exciting for me to open new doors to clients and give them a way to solve what they thought was a huge problem.” She continues, “Once you see their vision, the fun thing is giving them the best version of that vision.”
Theresa’s Tip of the Month
Hanging groupings of artwork can be tricky. First, arrange the pictures on the oor, then move them around like a puzzle until you have a pleasing arrangement. Hang your largest “central themed” picture rst, then hang the rest.
