Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I start with a free phone consultation and ask that the potential client send me picture of the project ( where applicable)

From there i estimate the scope and cost of the project and we decide if we are a good fit. Then the magic begins!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied fine arts, color theory, textiles, art history, merchandising in college.

I hold several certifications in color selection, real estate staging and visual merchandising.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Typically a room design is priced from $300-$800 including:

Color story selection, paint, furniture, accessory, lighting, floor coverings, window coverings.

We also offer hourly consults for $120 per hour.


How did you get started in this business?

My first client was my doll house family. I helped my mother and grandmother furnish their homes from a young age. My grandmother was a drapery designer and I fell in love with the way changing the lighting of a room would create a mood or theme.

I studied art all through school and designed many of my dorm mates rooms. The rest is history!


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with homeowners creating their living spaces, bedrooms, kitchens/baths, nurseries, outdoor patios. I've worked with store owners creating displays and merchandising. I have designed office spaces with new and existing furniture. I have worked with hotel and b&b's creating their lobby and bedrooms. I have worked with party planners and conventions creating backdrops and sets, decorations.


Describe a recent project you are fond of.

I am currently working on a 1940's remodel in central Austin, TX.  The homeowner and I have worked together on her personal home and this is an investment property she has that used to be a cottege and we have turned the garage into an apt. as well.  Love the gut and see aspect from the ground up!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

I would look at past work and see if your idea of what you want and their design asthetic mesh.  Even if all of their pictures don't showcase exactly what you envision, you may see something in their style that speaks to you.  Remember each design differs.  Also, communication and clarity are important.  


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Think about adding 10% to your budget for design help.  If you don't know what you're doing or aren't confident in choosing your own furnishings, just "winging it" will end up costing you A LOT more money when you discover you don't like what you've done and it's already finished.  Think it through.  Get pictures.  You are going to be spending a good amount of money on any improvement project.
