- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The pricing structure is by the hour, I charge an hourly rate of $175/hr for any type of consulting whether its residential or commercial design. I'm versatile and can do a single room or an entire project from remodeling to a new home build. Skills vary from floor plans, elevations, furniture layouts, purchasing of furniture, textiles, lighting design, window treatments, home office, tile, color consulting, kitchen, and bath remodels. As an extra benefit, I pass on my trade pricing for all goods and services to my clients in order to help them with the overall cost of the project. This way we have the flexibility to use more luxurious or high-end materials for something very special. In order to begin any project, I require a deposit depending on the scope of the work.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For our first meeting, I ask them about their priorities and what they want to achieve. We discuss their budget and what their ideal environment would be. I find out about their lifestyle, whether they are single, have a family, children, pets and how I can accommodate all of their needs. I would begin the project by taking photographs and measures of their home. From that information, I would create floor plans and elevations, then list all their priorities to achieve those goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Since early childhood, Erenberg was obsessed with decoration and design, studying vintage films and redecorating everything her parents would allow. Encouraged by her mother to find treasures and objects of beauty and design she combed local thrift shops and antique stores. these passions eventually lead her to USC where she earned a degree in art and architectural history while working as an assistant librarian for the architecture and fine arts library. When Erenberg flawlessly refurbished a classic 50s California house, her ingenious renovation featured prominently in the era-defining style book mid-century modern, and a full-time design practice was launched. Erenberg’s burgeon practice soon turned into a successful and sought-after design studio with scores of diverse projects completed to date and has appeared in a multitude of books and publications including: Casa Vogue, Metropolitan Home, Elle Décor (UK), Harpers Bazaar, Small Space Makeovers, Kitchen and Bath, and Better Homes and Gardens.
