It all starts with a complimentary design call. We will briefly go over your needs for the project and how I can help. This is the start of how I earn your confidence in my competencies, processes and core values.

Still Deciding If We're The Right Fit?
If you're still not sure or I haven't answered all of your questions, please send me a direct email. I would love the opportunity to provide all the information you need.
What Exactly Does Full Service Interior Design Mean?
Full service means creating a turn-key design for your project, from initial concept to the final installation. It is about letting our team handle all the details from research to selection, purchasing and coordinating to installation. Full service applies to a full room or group of rooms or entire home in a single installation. Many of our clients like to work in phases, and so many of our full service projects are done one complete room at a time. Full service applies even if you already own some of the pieces we will use to complete your project.
How Involved Will I Have to Be In The Design Process?
We will discuss upfront how you prefer to work, and craft the scope of work with that in mind. We enjoy working with all personalities where some clients like to be very hands-on and involved in the process, or some who prefer to entrust everything into our very capable hands. We have found through years of experience, that the design process runs smoother, and your design dollars go further, when we fully manage the project after learning your needs and desires.
We value our clients' ideas and input which ensures that the space will reflect your style and lifestyle. We will present you with great choices and options, make recommendations and guide you through decisions while educating you in the process. We strive to make the process simple and fun for our clients. We take a very personable approach and make it an enjoyable collaboration. We ask that you give us the chance to earn your trust. We do all the work and take care of all the details.
What Are Your Design Fees?
Because each project is unique, we need time to discuss your vision for the project and the scope of work, after which we will be happy to prepare a Fee Proposal for you. We generally charge hourly and estimate the total number of hours required to complete your project. This way, you know upfront what your overall fees will likely be. Any overage from our initial estimate are billed at our standard hourly rate. Although these fees are estimated upfront, staying within the scope typically will not result in increases. You will be informed about the hours used during the design process. Some services are billed at a flat fee. Prices are available for each service with a flat fee through our services menu.
Our payment options include checks, credit cards and cash.
How Long Will the Project Take?
Depending on the scope of work, your project could last anywhere from 8 weeks to 18 weeks - longer if there is construction and remodeling involved. We will discuss the timeframe upfront with you before the project begins. We have options for rush service and will be happy to accommodate your needs. Rush services usually will result in higher design fees and higher product and administrative fees.
How Do I Get Started?
You can reach out to us and book a free 30 minute discovery session. We are happy to answer your questions and explain briefly about the design process. We can then decide on a mutual date and time to meet in your home for the initial consultation. If you have been collecting any ideas about your style and preference, please feel free to share them with us. Discuss your ideas with your spouse or other decision makers. It also helps to determine what you would like to spend on your project and the timeframe for completion.
