Design Consultation Services
The initial design consultation is the perfect way to start your project and see how we can best help you enhance your space. The consultation can be the first step of a complete room design / renovation project or it can be a stand-alone design advice service. Perhaps you are ready to redecorate your home and need someone to look at your space with a fresh set of eyes. Or you are ready to purchase new furniture, have seen pieces that you like and are not sure how they may work with your existing pieces or how to place them in your space. Or you may enjoy the design process and would love to carry out the work yourself and you'd like advice and direction on how to move forward with your project. During this initial consultation we will use the time to ensure that all your questions get answered.
If you are planning a complete full service room design or renovation, this consultation will be the beginning of your project. We'll discuss your wishlist and what you'd like to incorporate into the new design. We'll discuss your budget, and explore ideas and options that fit your lifestyle and lay the foundation for your project. Following this initial meeting we will present you with our fee proposal for your project. We offer fixed or flat rates for full service projects that are tailored to the specific needs of each client. If we move forward with your project, the cost of the initial consultation is credited to your account.
$300.00 plus tax - 2 hours
Please note: If you would like to use the consultation as a "stand- alone" service, our hourly fee structure described below applies to any follow-up questions you may have.
Full Service Interior Design
Our full service design packages are catered to help you achieve a polished, sophisticated and personal home from the initial planning phases to the placement of the final accessory. Please read our design process below. We offer a consistent approach to ensure that each project runs smoothly and that the integrity of the design is attained in the end. Our firm can assist on every aspect of the design process including partnering with architects and contractors.
Every project begins with an initial consultation where are goal is to understand your project, the scope of the work, take some preliminary measurements, discuss your design needs and establish budgets and a vision for your space. This meeting is an opportunity to get to know each other and determine how we can transform your place.
Based on the preliminary scope of work and the budget established during the initial consultation, we create a customized letter of agreement and Offer of Service for your project usually consisting of a fixed cost for conceptual design and an hourly rate for project management. Once you have approved our proposal and a retainer is provided we begin on the planning for your project.
This is the research, design and presentation phase.
If your project involves mostly furniture and decorative elements we will present you with a selection of fabrics, flooring, wall colors, drapery, furniture and accessories along with moodboards to ensure you understand and approve the design direction.
If your project involves construction, we will meet and discuss with trades and contractors to firm up the possibilities. We offer architectural floor plans, furniture arrangements, elevation drawings, cabinetry & millwork, and lighting plans. We'll source finishes, fixtures, and furnishings for your home and present you with the new design vision.
Post presentation we will be working to manage all the details we've created for you including ordering, providing your contractor and their trades the information required to implement the design, follow up site visits and installations. Each detail and moving part requires close review and management to ensure that your project will include all the extra special details we've designed for you so we can achieve the end result we have worked so hard to create together.
The Finishing Touches
After construction has finished, and the fixtures and furnishings sourced during implementation have been installed, we will start sourcing accessories and artwork to add the finishing touches that will truly make it feel like "home". We will ask you to allow us to photograph your home for our portfolio.
Suited for the homeowner in need of guidance for specific design decisions or direction. We work with you throughout your remodel or renovation and provide stylist advice to help ensure your home comes together in a beautiful, cohesive way. You may need color advice or have a specific design dilemma that you would like to talk through. From space planning to material selection, we have you covered. Please note, that hourly consults are "one-time" consultations even if you schedule multiple consultations throughout your project. Any follow up questions you have after each consultation are billed hourly. So it is best to consolidate all your questions to ask at each scheduled consult.
Hourly rate $150.00 plus tax
