What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Communicating is essential, in order to fully understand what you are trying to achieve, I have a series of questions I like to ask pertaining to your project such as how do you utilize your space presently and what can we do to make it how you are envisioning it with your family and friends in it?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It doesn't have to be expensive to hire a designer or professional organizer to help you! We are here to make it easier on you to create the space of your dreams. I personally prefer to design for each client and their respective taste. I don't have to like a particular style or piece of Art to know if it works in your space within the design you have chosen. You ultimately are the one living in your home day after day and need to feel comfortable with your selections. I am Herr to guide you in the right direction.
