“I am passionate about bringing my clients what is new in function, design and technology in ways that it improves the quality of their lives.” — Carol Lombardo Weil
Oftentimes people are intimidated to bring an interior designer into their home, even when they know that their home needs an update, or they feel that something is wrong but they don’t know what it is that makes them uncomfortable. Listen closely… I’m not there to judge. I want to see how you really live so I can make your life better.
I bring knowledge, patience and passion to every project so that you can trust me and enjoy the process. I will ask you the right questions and then listen carefully, and won’t try to rush you along. Together we will discover what it takes to fulfill your needs while creating something truly unique to you.
I want to work with you in whatever way you want to work with me. I can manage every step or simply give you a push in the right direction — or build a relationship that is something in between. I offer three levels of customized service based on your needs, plus three stand-alone introductory packages that can work well for anyone:
Package # 1: Ask Me Anything $ 650
We’ll spend up to two hours together for you to ask me anything about design. Just a few possibilities are talking about how you can update a single room, selecting paint colors for up to three rooms, or getting my opinion and advice on the ideas you have so far.
Package #2: DIY Consultation $ 1,200
If you’d like to do most of the project yourself, you can talk with me first to avoid making expensive mistakes. Over the course of two meetings, we’ll select a color scheme, create a design concept and make a space plan with furniture options. You can keep these plans to guide you through the next stages of your project. The fee for this service can be applied toward a full-scale project if you chose to move forward.
Package #3: Remodeling and Budget Exploration $ 1,800
Over the course of three meetings, we’ll determine what it will take to make your renovation or remodel a reality. We’ll talk about your needs and goals, followed by measurements and photographs for reference. At our second meeting I will provide you with rough sketches for review, and at our third meeting we will meet with a general contractor on-site to determine the budget. You can use this information as a foundation if you chose to manage your remodel, or I can begin leading the project through the Premiere Interior Design Services described here. The fee for this service can be applied toward a full-scale project if you chose to move forward.
