    Isabelle R.'s reply

    Marjorie, I am happy that you liked the color palette we chose and that you took advantage of my guidance to turn this into a DIY project based on the budget you had to work with. It came out beautifully. Chalk painting is fun and your mantel turned out great. I was happy to discount my Color Consultation fees 40% and add furniture recommendations to remedy the large space, making your family room cosy with a simple switching furnishings around and adding fresh decorative pillows. I enjoyed sharing some 'tricks of the trade' and collaborating with you. Achieving the goal and loving the process is paramount.

    I was unsatisfied with the services provided by Isabelle and felt that we had trouble communicating. I did not feel that I received a good value in interior design services for the money paid. I would not use her services again and would not be comfortable recommending her services to others.

About this pro

It's important for me to meet my prospective clients in their home to best understand their style and what the issues, challenges, and needs are. For some, they know what they want and I help them materialize their vision. For others, I search for that one thing they light up about and we go from there. After 20+ years of concept design, intuiting the direction we need to take based on your requirements, we collaborate on design solutions to meet those objectives and visions. Because each project and client is unique, after listening to my client's requests, likes, vision, and budget, I present images to help narrow the direction of style or design solutions through the use of visual aides in 3 D, Pinterest and trade resources. Budgeting is part of a successful completed project. I am masterful at listening, searching, finding and implementing the 'look' you envision within your budget. Whatever your situation may be, I will strive to bring to you the perfect design solutions that best fits your aesthetics and style. My main objective is to create the most fabulous design outcome that meet all your needs. I offer an hourly or an all inclusive design fee depending on scope and duration of project, and my client's preference. Whenever applicable, I pass on my trade discounts from a long list of online and local stores. I am passionate about aesthetics, spacial planning, color and transforming spaces. I love interacting and teaching my clients how to look at design! I say 'break the design rules' if you love something; incorporate it into a balanced concept that you love and will continue to enjoy for a long time. I believe that a space, well lived-in, stylish yet comfortable, that is designed in an understated elegance, not too trendy nor cluttered, where each object is placed just so in the balance for that room, is an art to master. I love the challenges that each project presents... large or small, each brings its own sets of complexities and sometimes, challenges. I am a problem solver that enjoys creating designs my clients light up about for a long time!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      DESIGN: My Design fee is either hourly ($125.00 per hour with a complimentary 1hr. consultation or we agree on a 'job price' depending on the size of the project. I do pass on my 'Designer Trade Program' discounts. These may range from 10% to 20%. STAGING: We have packages for every situation from the ''Do It Yourself- Walk and Talk Consult'' includes a 26 page work book which we work through during the 2 hour consultation. This is a basic $275.00 package. 1/2 Day Staging $450.00 to hourly Interior design rates. Full Day- $950.00
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      We usually have a phone conversation or in home initial complimentary consultation followed by collaborating on a vision board created on Pinterest. From there, I develop and design a concept and bring in textile/flooring, furnishings samples or what not, and layout the design in 3 D. I send more photos from online shopping once the 'look' is determined...completing this to installation.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have 20 + years of experience starting with a career in real estate where I purchased homes to renovate and resale to becoming an HSR certified home stager years later to recently moving away from staging to strictly designing and updating for my existing and new clients.
