Decorating can be a daunting endeavor. I do my very best to guide each client carefully through the process in order to make it as easy as possible. Because each design project is unique, this is simply a general overview of the services I provide most often.
If you are making major changes to your whole home or building a new home you might find you need design assistance on an ongoing basis. With new construction especially, the process of making all of the interior decisions can happen over many months. With this in mind, I offer a flexible on-going partnership opportunity. Schedule appointments on an as-needed basis and we can discuss whatever decisions need to be made at that point in time.
I can provide furniture layout options, computer renderings of the space, material and product suggestions, and even meet you at stores if you would like assistance shopping and coordinating flooring finishes, countertops, colors, furniture fabrics, etc. I simply keep track of the hours we spend together on your project as well as any time spent creating drawings, renderings, and so forth. I will keep you apprised of fees as they accrue and will work with you to establish a payment system that suits you best.
Comprehensive Room Plan
Perhaps you prefer to focus on only one room at a time. A full room design begins with a meeting in your space to listen to your needs for function and style. The basic parameters of your project, your budget and the general timing are agreed upon. At this point initial measurements are made, I will take reference photos of the room and details such as colors and material preferences will be established.
Based on a combination of what I’ve learned from you, plus my own expertise, I will bring back a design plan for your space. This may include the use of photos and drawings, floor plans, fabric, paint and flooring samples and other materials I recommend. We will sit down and talk through the plan, and I will provide you with a Product Guide of resources as you move forward with your project. These focused room designs can take anywhere from 10-20 hours, depending on the scope and complexity of the space.
$50 per hour
This one time visit gets all of your design questions answered. I can help you with furniture and accessories placement, suggest how to use what you have, as well as suggest new items that might complete your space. We can look at as many spaces as you’d like, and address whatever issues you have in any or all of them.
Perhaps you’re simply looking for guidance with choosing paint colors for your space and just need a color consultation. I will bring paint catalogs and samples to your home, listen to your style preferences and help you select colors that reflect the mood and atmosphere you hope to achieve in your space. If you’d like some design help without much follow-up, you might prefer this on-the-spot assistance! These on-the-spot consultations generally take 1-3 hours.
