The Most Common thing I hear when I walk into the home of a new client: "I have never hired a decorator before. I don't know how this works."
This is a way of saying: I am nervous about this. What can I expect?
I get it, a strange person is walking into your sacred space who is going to fix everything!
But these people have gotten over their biggest fear: Picking up the phone and call me to set an appointment.
So that elephant in the room..... right in the middle of your home →
That elephant's name is fear (also called the chatter in your head preventing you from moving forward to call and get help).
You know what’s going on- you think you are the only one with the head-talk-stuff happening. You are not. (And usually people tell me, I wish I would have done this years ago; all that indecision.)
Some "Answers" to the "Questions" to your head-chatter:
What if I don’t like her ideas? Then tell her, because there are millions of solutions for every decorating problem.
How do I know she and I will work together? Call her.
Will she judge me on how my house looks? HELLO!!! I am there to help you LOVE your home. And she has seen lot of clutter and dust bunnies (in fact, don’t hide things, that way she can give you fabulous solutions).
OK, it’s only fair, Here's My biggest fear? That you are enjoying your home so much, you forget to email me your pictures!
How can you decorate around your elephant?

STOP: before checking out our Design services. THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING
Check with your husband, wife or significant other before calling. Nothing is worse than you getting all excited and have to say, "I need to check with my husband/wife/significant other."
Just so you know, many times after working with homeowners, the spouse (usually the husband) who was not there during a consultation asks their spouse call me before they start decorating their next room. Why? Because they know I am respectful of their budget and it helps them do it right the first time. A painless decorating process that eliminates costly Interior Design mistakes. And when the spouse is happy, the whole family is happy.... with a happy life.
If you can't afford it, just be upfront and be honest. That's ok. I know money doesn't grow on trees, and everyone has a budget. Just like anything in life, set a goal to save the money over the next month or so. I did this several years ago with a single mother, and she was so happy about the results, that a few years later, she saved for a second room.
The warning of SPOUSAL Push back : (men reading this, please go to another page on this website- we don't want you to see this). So, many men don't understand about how important it is to you about being proud of your home. So if it has a grandpa recliner, many men don't care about what it looks like, as long as it is comfortable. I know, many men don't get it. Because they think the house is decorated just fine, they believe you should think like them. This is Venus and mars... from different planets. Here's a little ammunition to counter the "everything is" fine: Start dressing in something frumpy for a while....explain to him this is how you feel in your home: sad and unappealing. Or, also, "how much were those golf clubs?" "boys trip?" "new Boat? ... what was the new toy purchased? You get the picture.
Cost of Interior Design Services
Important Information to make an Informed Decision- read everything before you Decide!
Everyone wants to know in advance what the Flat Rate Decorating Consultations Cost. Before I address that, I have corrected a lot of FREE Interior Design Services from Retail Stores. That is because most are not trained in Interior Design; balance, symmetry, repetition, color theory, textures, how high to hang items, how to accessorize, etc.
And, then there are the on-line services. Don't waste your money. Many of the online e-design push product. And many people are sad they have spent money because their homes don't feel warm and cozy, and don't flow with the rest of the house- of course not, these people are not seeing anything but the measurements you take.
Then I know for sure one Designer charges $150 for a discovery meeting over coffee. They have discovered a lot of things, but for $1500, then you get a plan. Another company charges $485 for an hour of Discovery. Hmmmmm...... maybe I need to raise my rates?
Why are my Flat Rate Decorating Services are so Reasonable Priced? Because we work together- you and me. We make quick decisions together. I don't "source" materials- which means, I don't have to find trade prices and create a spread sheet for mark-up. This is time-consuming, and that is what you are charged for by other Designers. Don't you want to sit on an upholstered piece of furniture before you buy it? Nothing is worse than uncomfortable furniture. With my Consultations, everything is handed to you before I leave your house. Yes, all the Design work is completed. And for $300 (depending on the size of the room), you are fully equipped to Decorate a room. And, yes, you can give me a cup of coffee while I'm at your home (wink-wink-wink), if you please.
I want you to know one Interior Designer is not better than another. It is a time versus money situation. And you may need the comprehensive Home Decorating where everything is purchased for you. I have worked in houses from 300 to 13,000 square feet. So, it is about your needs.
