Why charge a consultation fee?

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 implementing a design project and/or design-related purchases.

 How are your design fees structured?

With the exception of a few services, we work and bill hourly or flat rate according to the scope of service, the estimated total project budget, and/or the applicable time required to complete such service. 

Our design proposal will clearly outline the service, the applicable fee costs long with an estimated design time according to the scope of your project. If we must travel an extended amount of time to meet with you, we may assess a per diem fee to cover reimbursable expenses such as fuel, air travel, and/or lodging.

Can you help me if I only need creative ideas to get me started?

Yes! Even if all you need are initial ideas, we can certainly help.

The following services may be great solutions should you wish to undertake your own project:

  • Design Consultations (Virtual or Onsite)

  • On-Call Design Services

  • e-Design Services

How can I prepare myself before hiring a designer?

There are a few key steps to consider before working with a designer including:

  • Understanding the emotional and/or technical motivation behind your project

  • Set a realistic all-in budget for your project, considering both furnishings and professional design service costs.
    Always include an 20-30% extra reserve for those unexpected costs (they happen).

  • Decide what you want to keep and remove from the space

  • Create an inspiration board to keep track of visual ideas, thoughts/notes that'll help you define your design preferences.
    (We will help with the latter as well!)

Taking these steps will make it easier for you to make decisions as you move along the design process!

What expertise does an interior decorator/redesigner have?

Redesigner/Decorators specialize in the 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.

What does your full-service interior design consist of?

Our full-service interior design consists of three major phases:

  • Conceptual Design

  • Design Development (Decisions & Purchasing)

  • Design Execution (Installation & Reveal)

Our full service approach enables us to manage all the details (large and small) of your project from initial concept through completion that turn your space into a sanctuary.

Do you work outside of Indiana?

Yes, we do! We offer full-service design services on a per diem rate plus expenses for projects outside of the state of Indiana. We also offer virtual design consultations and e-design services. Contact Us for a custom quote.

I am a real estate professional and need help with a listing. Do you provide staging services?

Yes, we do. In fact, we provide everything from pre-market consultations with your clients, showcasing/ (lifestyle) staging to providing you with professional quality photography to help market your listing. Contact Us today to discuss your staging project.

I am a REI/builder/developer and need help selecting design finishes. Can you help?

Yes, we can. We can provide consulting services for helping you choose material selections/finishes for your renovation project. We also offer REI investor package plans that provide you with a list of curated design material products that you could provide to your general contractor. Finally, once materials are installed, we offer showcasing/ (lifestyle) staging and professional quality photography to help market your property to prospective buyers.

Contact Us today to discuss your investment project.

How long can a full-service design process take?

Timelines will depend on the scope of the project. However, typically:

  • The Conceptual Design Phase: Approximately 1-3 weeks

  • The Design Development Phase: Approximately 3 weeks to 4 months depending on scope

  • The Design Execution/Installation Phase:
    Typically expressed in terms of hours-days (i.e. Final installation for a 1-2 room project can take 8-12 hours.)

How many design hours will my project take?

Every project and every client is different. We usually require a consultation to take place before we can reasonably estimate the scope of work hours involved.

I 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.

What 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:

  • The Quick Problem-Solver (30 min. Design Consultation)

  • The Designer Subscription (Monthly paid subscription that also includes site visits)

Do 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 Contact Us today to discuss your next holiday project.

Can 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.

Can 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.

Do I have to move out for my re-design or renovation?

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.

Can 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.

Do 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.

What 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 our clients.

Why do you require full payment before purchasing furnishings?

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! Click Here to purchase e-Gift certificates.

Do you have references?

Of course! We invite you to talk with our clients about their experiences. Please reach out for a list of references.



What information do I have to provide to you in order to receive an e-design?

Once you have purchased your e-design service plan, we will request the following design information pack from you:

  • A completed design assessment (questionnaire)

  • Room measurements and room photos

  • Inspirational photos

  • Photos of the space and existing items you wish to incorporate

How do I estimate in advance the cost of the furnishings you specify for my room?

Our online questionnaire asks you to select from a list of investment cost ranges for your project. During our discovery call, we will also assess which price point tiers you are comfortable shopping which will help inform our design process and selections. While these are only targets, they are not guarantees. Once you receive your design pack, you can implement as specified or substitute items to meet your specific budget. You have the last word of when and what you purchase.

How can I be sure that the furnishings you select for me will fit my room?

Properly measuring your room will be critical to our design process. The information you provide us helps us to create a custom design. We recommend that you triple measure your space. Pay close attention to measure door openings, windows, and locations of electrical outlets. We are not responsible for any incorrect measurements.

If I decide to buy another room in the future, will my previous information still be available to ensure flow of all rooms designed?

Yes, we will retain your information. If any structural changes have taken place since your last design, you will need to submit new measurements of the space.

What is included with an e-design plan?

A standard e-design deliverable will include:

  • A custom inspiration/mood concept board

  • A floor plan and key elevation plan

  • A customized shopping list of key furnishings

  • A how-to guide/suggestions for accessories such as wall art, plants, and other decorative item

How long will it take for me to receive my e-design plan?

You will receive your design by email in approximately 3-5 weeks from the date that we receive your completed design pack requirements. We will confirm a firmer turnaround following our discovery call together.

What if I want to make changes to the selections after my e-design plan is delivered?
Will I still be able to communicate with you?

Our goal is to deliver a design plan that you'll obsess over. We can stay in touch via email, phone or video chat. To this end, our plans include at least 1 revision (be it one product specification or substitution, per room) as well as 1 post-design review. Any additional change requests or consult time beyond that will be assessed an additional flat fee.

What if I have questions, special needs, or requests or want to add information during the time my room is being designed? what should I do?

There are a couple of ways to provide additional information to us:

  • We encourage you to use the comment section of our questionnaire to expand upon your specific needs and requirements.

  • Provide the additional information during your 30-minute discovery call which is included in your package.

  • Provide details within your design information packet email

Will I be purchasing the items you recommend from you directly?

Most times, the product is to be purchased from a third-party vendor, which you will be directed to links shown on your e-design package. You may also have the option to purchase directly from us when a custom or to-the-trade item fits your needs and budget.

Do I have to submit inspiration images or can you just give me direction?

Inspiration pictures are a huge part of making sure we are on the same page. We won't be able to design without all of your design components having been compiled and submitted. Check out Houzz and Pinterest sites. These are excellent resources for finding inspiration. To submit them to us, you may do one of the following:

What happens if I change my mind on which room I want designed after I've submitted my questionnaire, measurements, and inspiration pictures?

If you decide to change rooms while you are in the process of pulling all your components together to submit to us, you may transfer the design fee to a different room. However, once you've submitted all those components and our team has started working on that room, no changes can be made.
