Where do you shop?
Primarily furniture and fabrics are found at design centers not accessible to the public. Secondly I shop retail stores that discount to designers and I often custom build pieces.
What is your style?
I believe that A good designer can design in any style. Anything from contemporary, to Mediterranean to classic French. It must reflect the desires and personality of the client and should be appropriate to the style of the house.
What is the design process all about? How does it work?
Contact us regarding a phone discussion regarding your project. Set up an informal and complimentary one hour meeting to discuss the scope of work.
At that time, we will listen and assess your needs and priorities. An estimated number of design hours and design fee will be provided. The contract will be explained.
There is no obligation to proceed after that, but we hope you will!
What happens first?
This depends on the size and nature of the project. If it's home furnishings, we discuss your style , your budget, then do a space plan and a complete design recommendation, then establish a timeline.
If your project involves remodeling or building, we have several well-qualified builders and general contractors to refer you to for detailed bids.
Again, a timeline is established and with everyone's agreement the project is launched.
We guide you through the process, as it pertains to your individual project, one step at a time.
What are the design fees?
Fees vary depending on the service and the project size, please contact us for a free no obligation consultation.
