- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is quite simple. I can be hired on an hourly basis or I can quote you on an overall design. I don’t mark up finish material as I try and pass on as much discount to you as possible. There are 2 levels of design I provide after the free initial consultation. 1. Drawings. When space planning is required, we start with computer aided drawings. These can range from simple floor plans to more detailed drawings that incorporate paint colors, flooring finishes, etc. At this point, a client can take these drawings and continue working with me, OR keep the drawings and finish the project on their own. This is the most cost effective if a client is on a tight budget. 2. Design. If you’ve chosen to continue working with me and would like the help, this is where the fun happens. I work with you to choose finish material, furniture, accessories, etc from beginning to end. I work with your contractor (if the project requires one) and can be as hands on or off as you wish. I’ll work within your budget and pass on any industry discounts I’m given.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
To make sure the client and I are a good fit, I like to do a free initial consultation. These last 60- 90 minutes and give me a chance to really listen and take notes on what the homeowner is looking for. While I don't give design advice at this time, I will give you a few space planning ideas while we tour your home. Upon completion of this initial walk through, we can then sit down and discuss a contract and see if this is the right fit for everybody!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an interior design degree from the Art Institute in San Francisco. The education was helpful when it comes to drawings, but real life is the best experience out there. I've worked on bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, house flips, all the way up to half million dollar whole home renovations. I love all projects!
