Introduction: I handle all interior styles. Here's how it works: 1. Call or e-mail me to arrange for a no-charge initial consultation. I consider this to be a working meeting, so in the hour or hour-and-a-half time frame, I'll be giving you a lot of free ideas. During our meeting, we'll also be reviewing a binder of magazine photos that I've assembled. It's very telling to have you flip through the photos and inform me of your likes and dislikes. We'll then get a very immediate idea of your preferred style; that's a very important process in order to make our selections! If you also have magazine photos, that's a bonus. 2. I'll then get you a proposal for the entire project. In it, I list everything that it will take to design your home per our initial meeting. My fees are $130 per hour, but if we can determine a scope of work, I can quote you a flat fee. Any purchases that you make through my firm, I sell to you at my net or discounted rate, plus a fee of 20% to expedite that purchase. 3. Should we decide to work with each other, I then hit the ground running, and at our second meeting, I'll be giving you a full presentation with actual selections and examples of the design concepts that we discussed. After that, it's all about additional shopping, getting quotes, establishing a budget and assembling your interior. What clients find appealing about my system is that I design the entire project upfront, so that we maintain a cohesive look. When you make the purchase is of no consequence to me; however, I find that when the clients have the big picture and pricing, the purchasing/implementing process goes faster. Having an a-la-carte listing of all of the items lets you prioritize, and when funds become available, you know exactly what the next item to purchase is. I've worked with many clients for a number of years this way, carefully completing a designed project. I insist on having fun working with my clients because I'm not a design dictator. I don't care where the inspiration comes from (once it came from UPS delivery personnel) as long as the selection excites you. Moreover, it's very important to interview as many designers as possible; you must click with that person. Please be sure to visit my website! Dave Yates

Excellent service, upfront and honest off the bat. We were looking for an interior designer to really alleviate the hassle of moving into a new home. We were low on time and wanted someone who would manage a project from start to finish. David's offer was to do a free consultation in home with a full walk through free of charge, and his website laid out how the entire process will work so it was 100% up front. From a project managers perspective, that's perfect. We are looking forward to working with David on creating our home and will leave a post review of how things went. Expecting things to go really well.

Dave arrived on time for the appointment, even though our initial request was to address interior design specifically for our walls and windows, he provided expert advice on other items including design choices and suggested palette to unify all elements while keeping our Family room focused as a room our children may use. I greatly appreciated his ability to work within our budget. We do not have a lot of money for a whole house make over; David proved great design can be affordable and obtainable within a family friendly budget. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and look forward to continuing working with David in the future. Most highly recommended!

David recently came out to our home for a free consultation. While we have not seen his proposal yet, he has been very responsive and also even provided several ideas at our initial meeting. At first impression, David seems like he would be a great person to work with and we look forward to seeing what he has to offer.
