- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Design Fees are $125 per hour. I ask for a retainer fee before starting design work or giving design advice. The amount of the retainer will vary dependent upon the size of the job, and is credited back to the client on the final invoice.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I always begin with an initial design consultation to discuss a client's goals for the project. I believe each design should reflect the client's taste and lifestyle, so communication is important. During that hour, it is easy to determine if we will feel comfortable working together. The first meeting is also a time to talk about schedule and budget. I provide an estimated amount of hours to complete the job, and we discuss timelines. Then, before starting work, the client and I complete a written contract which spells out the scope of work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
BFA in Interior Design, Marylhurst University Member, NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association), and have earned the AKBD (Associate Kitchen Bath Designer) certification Member, HBA (Home Builders Association), and have earned the designation of a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS)
