Design cost can vary significantly due to the level of work. There are many factors of designing a space from measuring to mapping, research and planning, creating the design, creating the outline plan, shopping for merchandise, labor, deliver, set up and stage the space and clean up. To respect the time and meet the needs of my clients, I offer paying for a portion of the design and time up front rather than hourly. This will allow for the project to continue moving with respect to shipment/orders. Once we reach the final days of the staging process the final bill amount is due. For clients looking for virtual consultation only, organization and/or systems for de-cluttering I offer hourly to save the customers money. There is no project to small that we can't do. Also, it's our priority to respect the customer's budget.
Set up a meeting and walk through with the customer to review their expectations.
I started in Retail and Visual Merchandising over 20 plus years ago. I have learned so many key factors in making a business run smoothly from managing, training, promoting, building, and breaking down barriers to setting design standards, mapping floor plans, design rooms with limited resources, to being flexible on the spot for corporate events. In retail, there are a lot of grey areas to expectations on presentation and you must think quickly on how to make it work. One thing that sets me apart from others is my passion. I have always loved the idea of color, patterns and prints in one space. I love to create the impossible while bringing “Originality, Beauty, and Comfort” to every design.
