We asked Sarah to come to our place of business and provide design for a very historic building. Sarah was professional, resourceful and was able to guide us with choices that resulted in a beautiful and grand entrance to our foyer and window treatments in our library and large tv room that were both functional, long-wearing and eye-catching. Sarah was able to connect us with vendors that worked within our budget and was able to communicate our needs with these vendors to get us the end result we desired. Working with the Lovely Locale (Sarah) was just that, LOVELY.Nov 14, 2017
Sarah of The Lovely Locale is such a pleasure to work with! She is extremely responsive, friendly, and professional. When I was unsure of the style I wanted for my new place, she presented a few different design concepts to make my decision easier. Sarah selected the most gorgeous finishes and furnishings for the space, while sticking to my budget. Everything specified and purchased is of amazing value and quality. There truly is nothing like living in a professionally designed home. Plus, I receive compliments from all of my guests! It was so fun working with Sarah while seeing her beautiful style and perfected approach to the design process unfold in my space!Sep 27, 2017The Lovely Locale's reply
Thank you, you were such a pleasure to work with!
Sarah has an amazing gift. We hired her several months ago, to guide us through a complete overhaul of our entire house, one room at a time. Initially, we had several designers come up with a concept so we could choose the best one, and hands-down, we chose Sarah because had the best design concept. After asking us questions, she was able to clearly articulate what it was that we wanted and the overall look we were going for. Working with her has been extremely easy. She communicates well, is thorough, detailed oriented, and overall has exceeded all of our expectations.Oct 15, 2017
Working with Sarah was awesome! It really couldn't have been any easier for me! Knowing I was on a budget, she picked out cute, affordable options for me to style my apartment. From the picture frames to the furniture, Sarah was super responsive, attentive and helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend hiring her for any design project that you have.Sep 27, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each project starts with a 1 hour design consultation of $350. During the project, I work off of an hourly rate of $150.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Each project begins with an initial design consultation. We will discuss project details like scope and budget, as well as how you'd like the space to function for your lifestyle. Most importantly, we will talk about your vision for the space, and how you want to feel in your home. From there, I create a proposal, outlining the scope + estimated project hours, as well as concept images for the design direction. I also send over a contract, to be signed once the proposal is agreed upon. I find that this is the easiest process because it sets goals and expectations for the project.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Science in Interior Architecture with a concentration in Sustainability from Endicott College.
