My name is Miki Benner and I live in Boalsburg, a small hamlet in central Pennsylvania, just outside of State College. My family consists of my three girls and the cutest little mini Schnoodle you have ever seen. Our home never has a dull moment, nor is ever quiet, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My passion for interior design began many years ago, prior to going to school. I remodeled and redecorated two of my own homes, as well as a few friends and family member’s homes, as a hobby! Personally, I love many interior styles but have a true love for mid-century modern design, style and furniture. Between you and me, I watch the TV show ‘Mad Men’ just to drool over all of the amazing vintage furniture and clothing!
I am a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Residential Planning. Residential Planning is a combination of many different levels of design, including Space Planning, Interior Decorating, Fabric and Color Planning, Kitchen and Bath Design, Architecture and of course, Interior Design.
Since design is ever changing, I am always looking for ways to improve myself and to increase my knowledge in this wonderful, creative field! I earned my Color Consultant Certification after working with color expert Kate Smith of Sensational Color.
23 Interiors Services
interior design and decorating
While design and decorating are two different services, they go hand in hand. Space planning, floor plans, furniture-lighting-textiles-accessories selections are the design part. Putting it all together is the decorating part. Taking the style of the client into consideration is extremely important during the entire process. Combining all of these details together is what will ultimately create a beautiful and functional space in which to live and entertain.
RE-design is a fairly new design term although the idea behind it has been around for decades. This is one of my favorite elements of the design process; using items that you already have, taking things from other rooms, rearranging and making your space feel totally different…..all on a tiny budget!
home staging services
DIY staging package
If you are on a tight budget or just prefer to do this sort of work yourself! The DIY Staging includes a one-hour consultation with the seller and a detailed, follow up report. As we walk through the home I will make recommendations and take photographs. A few days later you will be presented with a detailed 3-4 page staging report that includes a checklist of my suggestions and comments. The owners can then choose to do DIY staging or hire me for additional time.
