As we work together, I will help you define your style and determine what the priorities are for your home. We’ll create an overall design plan, outlining the process step by step. Even if you don’t implement everything at once, you will have a plan when you are ready.
We’ll create a home that reflects your personality and I’ll address issues that you may not have considered. As one of my lovely clients said, “You solved a problem I didn’t even know I had!”
We’ll optimize your space with the best furniture arrangement and make sure the furnishings you select are both beautiful and functional.
Sometimes it can be difficult to make decisions with all of the choices available to you. It can be a stress reliever to have a professional opinion and help knowing how to pull it all together.
When you are planning a new build or home renovation, having a designer by your side to help select the finishes and materials can be invaluable. I’ll help you determine which materials will work best for your needs and by making these decisions early in the process, you will avoid unnecessary delays in your project.
When you’re ready to update the look of your home or want your space to function and flow better, it’s always great to have a designer’s perspective.
I’ll help you determine how to get the best value for your money. It’s important to know where to spend your money- what items are worth the investment and how to find items that will give you the same “look” for less. I’ll save you money by helping you avoid costly mistakes and finding items that work within your budget. The cost of the designer fee is likely less than the cost of one design mistake.
In our communication we will discuss the scope of your project and determine a realistic budget. I am happy to source items from stores that you like and I’ll also give you options from some of my favorite places.
We will communicate frequently throughout your project. You’ll fill out an in depth survey that will help identify your likes and dislikes and share a Pinterest board or inspiration photos. This will help me understand your style and design goals. You will have always have an opportunity to give feedback on the design and we will make any necessary changes along the way as we collaborate.
Here are some suggestions on how to prepare for our design consultation!
Make a list of the things you would like to include in the scope of your project.
Determine a budget.
Decide if there are items you already have that you would like to incorporate into the design.
Begin a collection of inspiration photos or start a Pinterest board.
Communicate goals and expectations with any family members that will also be making design decisions and be sure you are on the same page.
