Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
after a phone discussion I visit the clients home and sit down with them Her / Him or both of them and pick their brains to find out what they really have in mind for their home.
I make suggestions as to how to progress with the job and what, in my opinon, should be the process to make thew entire job a pleasant and rewarding experience.
I have one goal and that is to make my clients happy.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
My first degree was in engineering from England. when I moved to the United States I attended Woodbury University in Los Angeles and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Professional Art majoring in Interior Design.
I have worked in all aspects of the design profession and have completed projects as diverse as hospitals to masions from 1100 square foot homes to 100.000 sq.ft. Senior Living facilities.
I look forward to going to work every day and seeing my clients faces when a project comes together and is completed

My initial consultaion is $250. this gives you four house of my time.
After that, my time is $85. per hour. If you purchase from me it's only $40. per hour.
How did you get started in this business?
After working in the business for 5 years teh company I worked for went broke due to extravegant spending by the owner.
They owed me thousands of dollars and I decided that from then on i would be in charge of my destiny.
Starting with 500 business cards I called on all my clients and told them what happened and made arrangements with them to save theirproject and their money that they had given the company in deposits. That was the beginning. I still have some of those same clients today .
What types of customers have you worked with?
All types, business people, home owners, store owners, mail carriers, auto machanics, and large coorperations.
Describe a recent project you are fond of.
I worked for a couple that loved the movies so much we made their home a theme home with every room or area being designed from a Movie title. really cool job ,lots of imagination.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Ask for the Designers qualifications, education, degree, work experience.
Ask if they cover all aspects of the project or if they expect you to do the running around (believe me I've seen it happen)
Ask for references. Ask for references. Ask for References.
(this was not a mistake)
will the designer work on what your tastes are he is he or she going to do their "LOOK" if they can't do what you want don't even think about working with them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Do we want it done right or is money our only concern.
do we think we can do better than a real pro.
do we need help.
Remember designing like anything else is a journey that should lead to a destination that makes you happy.
