- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing for design and staging vary depending on the amount of rooms that need to be styled and the total time spent on the project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I usually schedule a phone call to find out more about the project and if it is a fit for us. Then we set a day and time for an in-home 90 min. consultation which allows me to see the space live and make my notes about layout, decor, colors, style etc. From there I prepare an estimate for the project and send it to the client within 24hrs. of my first visit. After the client approves the estimate I start sourcing the elements, furniture and accessories for the design (or staging) and prepare a mood-board with pictures which is sent to the client for visualization and final approval on the concept.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I received my BA in Interior Design from the Berlin International University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany. I worked in Interior Design for 4 yrs. while in Germany until I decided to come live permanently to the United States. Once in USA I came to Miami and went to 1 yr. to University of Miami for an Interior Design Certificate and 4 more yrs. to Miami International University for BA in Fine Arts with a minor in Interior Design.
