FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is included in the complimentary design evaluation?

We will visit you in your home or at your project to evaluate your existing conditions.  After a short interview process we will have enough information to form an opinion and devise a general design plan.  It is a great time to show us photos and discuss some of your ideas.

We will not give design advice as this is a preliminary meeting to gather information only.  Our team will give you a written proposal for your review and approval prior to starting work.

Do you sell furniture and provide the design services at no charge?

You may not need to purchase new items for your home. Many times our clients have wonderful home furnishings that just need some refreshing and a new mindset. We look at the big picture prior to making design and décor recommendations. Our focus is to analyze your space and after an initial interview determine the best method to achieve your vision.  As each person is an individual the same accolade applies to interior design.

We want to purchase home furnishings for our home. What do you provide?

We offer a variety of methods for completing projects.  From shopping trips (wholesale and retail), specification of home furnishing products and factory direct purchasing services.  Based on your specific desires and requirement, we will give you the options available.

How do you charge?

It depends on what services you need.  A variety of payment levels are available from hourly,  a block of time, fixed project fee to a monthly design fee as in the case of project management services.

We will discuss the options based on your individual project parameters.  There may be more than one option that would fit your project requirements.

Can your firm provide design services only?

Short answer, yes.  We can work directly with you, your contractor or architect to provide the expertise you require to get all the details and communications handled while keeping the process moving smoothly along.

My husband and I have different styles, how can we get something we both like?

This is not an unusal circumstance.  It is a matter of combining or coordinating both design aesthetics to create a harmonious decorating plan.  We are happy to provide guidance to make everyone in the household feel their input was considered.

Do you have to measure my home to develop a design plan?

We start every design project with a measurement of your room.  It is important to understand what items you plan to keep and what new items you need to complete the design plan. To that end, we measure your space and furnishings prior to making a space plan to allow the proper furnishings are recommended.  That is the reason you are hiring a professional.

What is a preferred, certified contractor?

We work with many levels of professionals established over years of service.  These "preferred" architects, custom workrooms, general and sub-contractors must meet our highest standards with proper credentials and reputations.
