How Much Will It Cost?
We have an hourly rate for smaller projects (like restyling a living room), a flat rate for remodeling your home and special rate for Contractors (on application) and everything starts with an initial consultation.
What does a typical project look like?
Every project is different and unique which is one of the things I love about my job. However you can expect that once a project begins, I will be in constant communication with you. We do a lot of work by email and phone since it is an efficient form of communication, and can speed up the time to get answers. Usually once or twice during a project, I will come out to your project site and review the project. I love to see progress and it ensures that we are all on the same page.
Can you help me pick a paint color?
Yes, of course! Wall color and lighting can be two things that make the biggest impact in your space however, picking paint colors is a task that is more difficult than many would like to admit. We’ll do a design consultation in your home with color samples. At the end of the meeting, you will have a list of all of the paint colors, finish styles and surfaces that we think would look best in your home.
Will we drive around from store to store?
Shopping for furniture in store greatly reduces the number of pieces available for your design, it takes much longer to travel between stores and many times, the piece you want isn’t on the store floor anyway. What we try to do is gather as many photos, specifications and product samples as possible to help you make an informed decision. If you are not comfortable ordering your furniture from an image and you absolutely must see and touch furniture before buying it, let us know in the initial consultation and we’ll be sure to budget more time in our estimates to allow for in-person shopping.
Do you consult on Exteriors?
Sure. We will do exterior color consultation. Much like interior we select color options and leave you with information on what color and where each color is best placed. Selecting exterior colors takes a much different eye and we strongly suggest using a professional.
How do you make your money?
We make our money by charging a flat hourly rate or a flat project rate for any work that we perform on your project. In addition when ordering selections there are some companies that designers can buy directly from. When this is the case we split the savings with you so you will always pay less than retail in those scenarios.
What if I want to return furnishings?
When purchasing custom pieces for your home, you’ll have plenty of product information, leaning on our expertise and of course have plenty of photos. When we order the furniture, every order is custom designed for your specific home – so all sales are final and there are no returns. If there is any defect in the product we will get you a replacement as soon as possible.
