process

My process is a little different than the average designer.  My goal is to support you in the way you are comfortable working.  I find that the best results are achieved when you are in control of your budget and schedule.  

step by step process:

INITIAL CONSULTATION:  

We will schedule an hour long meeting to walk through your space and discuss your goals.  I will provide my initial ideas and suggest a phased approach to completing the work.   I'll follow up with a proposal for the requested work. 

DESIGN PROCESS:  

After an agreement is reached, I will begin brainstorming solutions, researching products and narrowing down options.  Once I have a clear vision in mind, I will generate concept board(s) for your review.  This process takes time and generally takes a few weeks to complete.  I find I can provide better results when I let my ideas 'sit on the back burner', rather than rush the process.  

DESIGN PRESENTATION:

I will present the concept boards, finishes, fabrics and any other necessary items required for you to see the whole picture.  You will also receive a comprehensive price list including links for purchasing.  I will walk you through all the details of the design.  This will be your first opportunity to provide feedback on the design.  I want to know the specifics of what you like and what you don't like.  We will work together to make revisions until you are completely satisfied with the design.   

PURCHASING:  

This is when you take over.  You can begin purchasing items from the price list as your budget allows.  You can buy things all at once or piece by piece.  I will be checking in with you regularly to see how things are progressing and make suggestions along the way.    

INSTALLATION:  

You will be in charge of scheduling and coordinating installation.  As you install items, I will make site visits at your request to help you organize and style the room.  


SOURCES

I exclusively source products online.  The Design Center isn't a place I go to very often, it's just not my style.  My goal is to find beautiful design solutions at affordable prices and the internet has never let me down.  A few of my go-to stores are West Elm, Anthropolgie and Target.  Mixing investment pieces with inexpensive accessories is my bread and butter.  


BILLING

So, how much does all this cost?  I charge by the hour and I'll send you a detailed report each month describing what I did with each one of those hours.  I will never try to sell you products.  And I'll never hide my charges in my fees.  My goal is to be as transparent as possible.
