How I Work
I COME TO YOU FOR EVERY APPOINTMENT
My service is concierge style, which means I make the magic happen in the space you wish to transform. You never have to leave the comfort of your home.
I AM A FURNISHINGS RETAILER
I have an arsenal of top quality products & work directly with the reps from each furnishings company. I am able to supply all your decor needs, floor to ceiling from my library of suppliers.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU
Your budget will focus on the furnishings in your custom design, plus shipping, handling & installation. For a typical job there are no hourly fees, which allows me to work closer with you, getting your design just right.
My process is more efficient and customized. I do the sourcing for your project from my design library, enabling me to focus on the best merchandise for your unique style and needs. I pull every element of your design together in my studio instead of visiting multiple showrooms and being limited to those selections.
What to Expect
GETTING TO KNOW YOU - YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Initially, I prefer to schedule a brief phone call to discuss your project, answer your questions & schedule your complementary consultation.
Your first appointment is complementary. Everyone involved in the design-making decisions should be present at this appointment whenever possible. I show up ready to get to work. I will ask you many questions about your personal taste and the functional needs of your space. I take photos, measurements and careful notes to begin your STYLE FILE.
After discussing design solutions, together we establish your priorities, budget and a time line for completing your wish list.
If you choose to schedule a design presentation, I prefer to get that on the calendar within the following two weeks so we don’t lose momentum. Remember, I am all about efficiency and actually granting you the completed project of your dreams!
Depending on the size of your project, there is a design commission. This commission comes back to you when you move forward with the purchase of your custom design. It will be reflected in your final balance.
PRESENTATION DAY - YOUR SECOND APPOINTMENT
Be ready to make decisions! This appointment tends to be lengthy, as we nail down and finalize your design.
You will be presented with design boards, coordinating swatches and samples for each space to be transformed. I will have a carefully curated selection of merchandise created specifically for you. This is when we work together to perfect the final design to your liking….because this should ultimately reflect you, not just my vision as your designer.
Again, keeping things moving efficiently, we finalize your design by the end of this visit. In the rare event, that my selections do not quite meet a client’s expectations, a second presentation may be necessary to complete things.
When the design is finalized we total your merchandise plus shipping, handling & installation. To place the order 60% of that total is due. The remaining balance is due when we deliver and install your stunning new room!
THE BIG REVEAL - INSTALLATION DAY
Leading up to this appointment, we will have the bones of your room prepped. For example, any painting, wallpapering or flooring installation will happen before the furnishings, draperies, accessories and wall art are delivered.
If you need a cleaning crew or a home organization service to help you prepare & freshen your space, I will arrange that for you at an additional charge.
When your new furnishings are delivered, a professional, white glove moving crew will carefully place them in your home under my guidance. We handle everything, from hanging your wall decor to mounting your tv. All the packing materials are taken away and you are left with a pristine new room to enjoy!
