Interior Design is so much more than just selecting furniture and pretty things. It's a process of meeting new people, getting to know them down to their daily routines and then allowing them to trust you to translate their vision, hopes, needs, wants and goals through their home, where they will spend years living their best life.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We enjoy meeting our customers face to face or on the phone and LISTENING to them. What do they need done? What deadlines exist? We hope to convey to new customers that we are a trustworthy company and have their best interests of our clients in mind at all times. Once the initial meeting/consultation is complete, we've discussed all of your design needs and goals and we both agree to be a good fit to move forward, the process is rather simple! Client sends us inspiration photos then we work on putting together our design proposal in 7-14 days via interactive PDF form so it's nice and easy for everyone to navigate. Complete with material samples and floor plans. IF we are working with clients remotely, we mail them a complete presentation package. From there, we work together to finalize all items and design plans together and then we work with local contractors to execute. During our consultations, we discuss all of the details :)
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Having worked at a top Miami Interior Design firm for 5 years was all of the hands-on experience I could have asked for! I learned an incredible amout about the industry and also created relationships with vendros that were able to help me launch my own business. While I recevied my B.A. in Arts & Marketing from Syracuse University, I later went on to attend the New York School of Interior Design for certification.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.
While every project is different, I offer pricing in two different ways so that cost is approachabe to every size project:
1) Flat Fee - this is typical for smaller projects that only require decorative selections, space planning, etc. Flat fee's require a minimum of $3k.
2) Hourly Rate - this is typical for larger projects that require construction, on-site visitis, contractor supervision, etc. My hourly rate is $125/hr.
How did you get started in this business?
I have always loved the world of design! After working for 5 years with a wonderful Interior Design firm in Miami, it was time to puruse my passion of both design AND entreprnurership! I created my logo and secured my first client and the rest is history!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with all size projects and every type of client! Not every fit works but when they do, my clients have been extremely wonderful, friendly, and inviting people. It's an honor to be invited into someone's home.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I was recently invited to particiapte as a designer in the 3rd annual 2018 Design on a Dime Event curated by Housing Works, a non-profit whose mission is to end Aids and hoelessness across the country by 2025. I can't tell you how humbling and amazing this experience was! Myself, along with around 20 other interior designers, were asked to raise $30k worth of furniture and decor from their trusted vendors and then translate it into an assigned vignette at the event's location. From there, home shoppers are invited to attend the grand opening event where they can shop all pieces of our vigenttes at heavily discounted rates and all of the proceeds go to Housing Works! This is by far the best event of my career.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Make sure you're a good fit before signing on with an Interior Designer. Not everyone jives, and that's ok! but when you start the hunt for an Interior Designer, remember that you are inviting this person into your sacred space, they will be learnig everything about you, when and how you brush your teeth included, so it's important that along with appreciating their portfolio and past work, that you can see your Interior Designer as more, as a friend.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
1) Are you available to take on my project's deadlines?
2) How and when will you charge me?
3) What can I expect for a proposal?
4) How long does the process typically take?
5) What happens if I'm not happy?
