Here's what to expect when I work with you:
1. I ask a lot of questions. I must get to know you! Why? Because I must figure out what your likes and dislikes are; How your family uses the space- your unique lifestyle; How you envision the room feeling and looking after the decorating is completed.
2. As a result of #1, I ask even more questions! Again, it’s learning and understanding you and your family. I have to consider- little children and their toys; animals and their importance to you; storage issues; are there Seniors Citizens living in or visiting the home; How long are you planning to live in your home and does it make sense to spend the money. I also need to hear you tell me what is not working for you.
3. If possible and if needed, I arranged or rearrange the furniture. I rehang artwork and reassesorize.
4. I make recommendations of what else is needed in the room. There are millions of solutions to every Decorating dilemma. Every solution recommended to you is based on what you have told us about you; your style and lifestyle. My Interior Design Consultations are collaborative and if a recommendation is not resonating with you, you tell me, and I find the right Decorating Solution for you!
5. Since I am a creative, resolution-minded person, I THINK OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. You may hear yourself say “I would have never thought of that!” Yes, that is why you hire and Interior Designer! (Actually if I haven't heard that statement, then I haven't done my job)
6. You will have detailed information of what to do to give you the room or home of your Dreams. By the time I have finished your Design Consultation, you will know exactly what you need to do to complete your room.
This is what is Covered in a full redesign Consultation: Furniture (size, shape, color, fabric, etc), window treatments (fabric, rod, or none, if you so choose), accessories, artwork or photo galleries (what size and how high to hang), flooring (area rug size or new flooring), Light fixtures and lamps, paint colors and more. Kitchens and Baths: new layout if you desired, counter tops, cabinets, light fixtures, paint selection,table size and more. So as you can see, I cover everything from ceiling to floor. And to thin, you'll be able to do it WITHOUT Making COSTLY Decorating Mistakes!
7.. Oh, by the way and the Fun Part: You are educated on Design Principles!
8. I offer FREE follow-ups for clients via email (with the complete Room ReDesign)
9. How long does it take? It depends on which Design Consultation you select. A complete Room Makeover averages between 2-3 hours for the first room, and less time per room when you "bundle" multiple rooms at one time.
The final thing that happens:
In almost every Decorating Consultation, you will be SO EXCITED to finally know “HOW” and “WHAT” to do to pull your room together, you may find yourself PUSHING ME (the decorator) OUT THE DOOR so you can GO SHOPPING! Don’t worry, I understand this and I don’t take it personally because it really does happen all the time.
Need help implementing your plan? Yes, I do have shopping assistance. Very few people utilize this because the recommendations are very concrete, so most people do not struggle with indecision.
If you understand Life Purpose, this is mine: to give people homes they love- that's it... it is that simple! I am so grateful to be able to help so many people enjoy their life.
