MOSAIC delivers your home investment to with good value, social and personal relevance, and exceptional quality. As MOSAIC moves into a new decade, the company will continue to develop and grow their client and vendor relationships, build their internal support team, and create social awareness though brand development and interactive communications.
MOSAIC is founded on a business model allowing 100% of your design budget to go to design. “I have worked the last ten years to create a unique and disruptive design-business model. After various attempts to create this relatable and modern approach for a fair design-service-contract, it truly boiled down to transparency.
I have always worked transparently, without fully grasping the financial value to the client. I feel transparent conversations lead to faster decision making for the client. Even with my love of spreadsheet and budget, the transparency relives me from pointless accounting and paperwork. After testing this model, talking to peers in the industry and working it in real time…
I see the immediate return on investment for the client and MOSAIC. With MOSAIC’s fee structure, clients are better able to budget their projects and with the newest addition to the model, timeliness can be a secured factor as well.”

Storytelling by Design
MOSAIC designs homes that tell stories. In the beginning stages, Stacey’s focus is split between pragmatics of your storyline’s flow and our curious selections of character-driven design materials.
“All These Stories, begin with the perfect ending… It’s hard to explain, but stay with me…. When we go on our first shopping trip, I encourage my clients to select their dreamiest of dream items. I want to see your face light up and you to fall in love with items for your home; items that you wouldn’t have a clue on how to put together on your own, but can’t seem to get out of your vision. While we are at it, the more items you select, the better!
In those moments, we see how your home will take shape. As we swirl in phase one of programming and selections, these pieces you enjoy become building blocks for our supporting items and areas. Sometimes our first-loves serve as inspirational pieces, as other contending and comparable selections come to light, while other times, items are just so perfect, we build our rooms and spaces around them. This little journey builds trust with Stacey, ignites the project dialogue and creates a deeper personal connection for homeowner to home.
