- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I offer a complementary 1-hour initial consultation where you walk me through the space and tell me what your design style is or what your needs are. It's my opportunity to interview you to learn your style and needs! My design concept fee is based on the room size, not by the hour. I like to talk and don't want you looking at the clock! In addition to a design concept fee, you will pay for the furniture and accessories. I offer these items at a discount off the retail price. This discount usually offsets the design concept fee! I add 10% to the furniture and accessories to cover returns/shipping fees, so that the client is not nickel and dimed for shipping costs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I offer a complementary 1-hour initial consultation where you walk me through the space and tell me what your design style is or what your needs are. It's my opportunity to interview you to learn your style and needs! Within 2-3 weeks, we have a design presentation meeting, which is usually 1 hour per room, where I show you 2-3 design concepts complete with color floor plans, elevations (as needed), flooring, tile, fabric and paint samples. It is so much fun to discuss the possibilities and choose from what I have selected. From there, I order the furniture and accessories selected from the meeting and set a tentative installation date 6-8 weeks out. We also schedule any remodeling, painting, and light hanging before the installation. Installation is usually a 1-day process where my team completely installs all the furniture and accessories while you are away. We have a big reveal at the end of the day (just like on TV!) and show you how awesome your space looks!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have over 11 years experience in commercial and residential remodeling, designing and project management. I have designed and managed projects ranging from $3,000 to $20,000 to $300,000. I have an interior design degree (2010) from El Centro College in Dallas, TX; it's an accredited degree in residential and commercial interior design. I have also been a member of ASID since 2007, the American Society of Interior Designers, which requires that members either have a degree or extensive experience in interior design to be a member. Interior design is my third profession. It may seem strange that I have also been a technical writer/editor. I am great with the details and what made me a great technical writer makes me a great designer!
