Carla Daro is very familiar with the Vue 46 homespaces, as the original consultant who helped decorate the model units. She has also done consultations with a few Vue 46 residents (e.g. Jim Hebert). She has a great network of contractor folks that she can put you in touch with depending on the work you want done.
