A designer only has two key things to
sell you: Value and Talent.
Every client and every project is
important to us, but there are only so
many hours in a day. The time that we
spend together and the information that
we share with you is valuable and should
focus solely for your benefit and to
your advantage. Through our process of
actively listening, learning, and
understanding your needs and desires, we
are able to provide value by making
appropriate recommendations geared
towards helping you achieve your project
objectives. A consultation can also help
you avoid costly mistakes by having a
professional opinion prior to making any

expertise does an interior decorator/redesigner

aesthetics, the "look and feel" of an
interior from color schemes to selecting
the material elements of a design,
including countertop and flooring, tile,
and decorative hardware to fabrics,
furniture, artwork, window treatments,
lighting, paint colors, and accessories.
Our role is to add personal character as
well as functionality to your interior.
does your full-service interior design consist
Our full-service interior design
consists of three major phases:
Our full service approach enables us to

of your project from initial concept

purchased a block of onsite design consultation
time. Are unused hours refundable?
On-call and Onsite Design Consultation
service plans are purchased upfront and
are 100% non-refundable. The hours are
good for use on multiple or future
projects and they are valid for two
years from purchase date.
are "On-Call" Design Services?
Our Designer On-Call service plans allow you
dedicated phone/email/web support access
to our designer team where you can
freely communicate with us as needed via
voice, text and/or virtual web chat. We
offer two on-call service solutions:
you provide holiday decorating services?
Yes we do! We provide these seasonal
decorating services for holidays between
New Years and Christmas. Beat the clock
this year and
today to discuss your next holiday
I make purchases online and/or on my own?
There are many benefits to having us
purchase on your behalf as we do all the
paperwork and order proofing, we take
the responsibility of always fully
inspecting items and deal with any
claims that there may be. Depending on
the vendor, we may also split our trade
discounts with our clients which can
save you between 10%-20%.
To that end, you can feel confident that
we will create a beautiful interior for
you. If you hire us to provide
procurement services for your project,
we respectfully request that you allow
us to handle this aspect in its entirety
to ensure that everything fits the
overall design, space, and/or budget.
However, if you have any existing
furnishings that you would like to
incorporate, we are more than happy to
work them into the final design.
I use my own trades people?
Of course! Many of our clients have
personal connections or have used
different trades in the past that they
would like to work with again. The great
thing about working with our trades is
that they already understand our design
philosophy and can communicate with us
to produce our unique designs. In any
event, having a close relationship
between your Designer and your trade
team is extremely important. We welcome
the opportunity to meet with your trades
people before the design project begins.
I have to move out for my re-design or
Unless there are safety concerns that
require that you vacate the space (i.e.
an insane case of asbestos, lead, etc.
during say, the construction phase), you
most likely do not. You may at times be
living through the process but we will
go out of our way to make sure the
transition doesn't affect you living in
your own home.
I use my existing furnishings?
Yes, we love to incorporate existing
furnishings if possible. If there are
items that you wish to use in the space
it is best if you point these items out
at the time of the consultation so that
we can work them into the design plan.
you work on a budget?
Absolutely. We are always happy to work
with the realistic budgets of our
clients. We work with many wholesalers
and trades that offer us discounted
rates and these are in part passed on to
our clients. When you are working on a
specific budget we will educate you on
what is possible and what is not. We
make it an effort to come up with
creative solutions to get the look you
want within your budget.
is it like working with your design firm?
Working with our design company is like
working with an artist, a therapist, a
project manager, a teacher, and
sometimes--even a magician. We strive to
always maintain fluid communication with
you, to be great financial stewards and
collaborative partners, and of course,
provide the best quality of creative
design service that we can with each of
do you require full payment before purchasing
We require a 100% purchase deposit
before we initiate all project orders
and procurement. We've had several
clients go through tough times that
pulled them away from the project. While
we completely sympathize when a person
can no longer focus on the design
project during a personal crisis, orders
already placed are now set in motion and
cannot be pushed back or cancelled
(especially custom orders), which means
production will conclude and balances
will be due. Tactfully put, as much as
we love our clients, we are a design
firm, not a bank.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes, we do!

you have references?
Of course! We invite you to talk with
our clients about their experiences.
