Monday Design Studio offers full service interior design along with exceptional customer service. It is our goal to help you realize YOUR vision for your interior space. We are an easy-to-work with studio that prides itself on quality, affordable design.
Seeing clients thrilled with their newly-designed space is the BEST part of the job. Plus, every project is different so each new client is a new challenge for us - it keeps our work fresh and exciting, which is a benefit to our clients.
After purchasing a condo needing a complete redesign, I was overwhelmed. And then Tim came along and helped make the process of designing, selecting, and the never ending decision making not so daunting. He spent time listening and learning--what I liked, how I would use the space, what I had in my previous home that I wanted to maintain in this new space. And budget! The result is a space that is a true reflection of my personality. From the wall coverings, tiles, backsplashes, to the furniture and placement of art, he created a space uniquely me. Tim always tell me I "embraced the process". I am not sure I totally know what that means, but, Tim's guidance helped me take chances I never would have without him and the result is amazing. I love coming home.
We have worked with Tim on multiple projects over 10+ years and the experience has been superb again and again. To summarize, Tim brings solid design experience together with your wishes to create a unique look for what you need, with touches of surprise. He is honest in his opinions of what will work and not work- and has been 'on call' to help us decide if a found piece will work in our home. His sense of color is amazing and he has simply been worth every dollar spent for his advice. My doubtful husband has even bought into consulting with Tim on every home design because he has saved us heartaches and money with his sage counsel. We could write more, but call me if you need additional info--our endorsement is all in!
We had a fantastic time working with Tim over 12 months on the big project involving complete remodeling of our kitchen, 2 bathrooms, family room, living room and dining room. Tim has an excellent taste, great ideas and attention to details. We loved working with Tim and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an interior designer.
Tim designed our family room, office, bedroom and a bathroom. He is wonderful to work with and his follow through, design aesthetic and creativity are exceptional! I'd highly recommend him!!
Typically we meet with potential clients for a one hour "interview" - we meet them, they meet us, we walk their project and discuss their goals. Design is a very personal business - there must be a connection between designer and client or the process will not work. This initial meeting is at no charge, after which we will submit a written proposal outlining our fee and scope of service for each client within seven days.
I am formally educated in both art history and interior design, and have worked in the design industry since 1988. I have decades of exposure to goods at all price points, which educates and informs my decisions as products are selected for client projects. I can pair something from Crate and Barrel with products from Baker - whatever is the best product for the client.
As a firm, we pride ourselves on transparency. Once our proposal is submitted, there will be a very clear understanding of "how it all works." Typically, we work for a design fee and sell goods to our clients at "cost-plus."
I have always loved design, and have done it for almost 30 years - I actually cannot remember doing anything else!
Residential and commercial, newlyweds and empty-nesters, families and single professionals. Every project is different (and we love that!)
I had the joy of gutting a 13th floor condo overlooking downtown on Cleveland's Gold Coast. The unit has AMAZING views, so the interior had to be at the same level. Our client embraced the process. trusting us with color and wall paper choices we know she wasn't comfortable with at first. However, she had faith and her unit is now our (my) opus. We love every project but this one will always be special...
If, after meeting a potential designer - you are not inspired or excited - walk away. He or she is not the right "fit" for you. Keep interviewing till you find a designer that makes you excited about your project, one that will take your vision and help refine/define it.
You MUST know your budget - please, do not ask any designer what he or she "thinks it might cost." Designers do the best they can with what they have but we must know - going in - how much you expect to spend.
