what to know & Frequently asked questions
How do I get started?
-First, call or email me to discuss your project and we can set up a Meet & Greet Consultation.
-In the time prior to your consultation gather inspiration images or materials to make the most of our consult.
-If you will need a Contractor, start talking to friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers about referrals. Nextdoor.com is a great platform for local referrals.
Why do I need a Meet & Greet Consultation?
A Meet & Greet Consultation gives both the client and designer a chance to meet each other, discuss the project goals, share design ideas, review inspiration images, get basic measurements and photos and understand the vision for the project. It also allows the designer to determine the scope of the project for scheduling purposes. After the Meet & Greet you will receive a quote for design services and detailed scope of work to review.
Why does a Meet & Greet Consultation cost $99 ?
With the consultation you will receive an hour to hour and a half of my time, and as we discuss your space I will offer some some initial problem solving and design ideas. It also takes time to compose a scope of work and put together a customized quote for your project.
How much time should I expect for the design process, and what does it look like?
This varies greatly based on the project and availability.
I typically BOOK 4-6 WEEKS OUT for a consultation (and often more), and up to 6 months out for a project start date, so if you are interested in scheduling you'll want to get it set up in advance.
The CONSULTATION process is about 2-3 business days. First is the in-home Meet & Greet Consult where we will discuss your project, budget and timeframe, brainstorm some design ideas and take measurements and photos. Then I will provide you with a scope of work and a quote for design services based on what we discuss.
IF YOU ARE READY TO MOVE FORWARD with the design process we will discuss what level of design services suits your needs, timing and a contract. I will then start on vision boards, space plans, renderings and an estimated cost of decorative materials. Once an initial design is selected we will then source the decorative materials and get ready for construction.
SCHEDULING the design & renovation start are dependent on designer, contractor and client availability. It is not wise to rush the start of a project as it will usually end up taking longer and costing more due to limited in-stock product availability, expedited shipping, project delays waiting on product, etc.
For a KITCHEN OR BATHROOM RENOVATION expect 6-8 weeks in the design phase prior to the construction start. This allows for cabinets and other special order items to be sourced, spec'd, ordered and arrive or be in transit before the construction begins. Depending on the scope of the project a typical kitchen or bathroom takes 5 -10 weeks for completion, and more if structural elements and permits are involved.
For DECORATIVE DESIGN SERVICES expect 4-6 weeks of design work and a few additional weeks for product arrival, installation and styling.

Each project is unique, so it is challenging to provide one set cost. However, many clients find that the trade discounts I extend to my clients offset design fees significantly. Please contact me directly to discuss the options.
