How do I work with you?
Simply fill out my contact form, including relevant details to your space. We’ll have an introductory phone call to discuss the project, including your challenges, ideas and goals. If we seem like a good fit for each other, we’ll schedule a design consultation.
How do you handle purchasing?
There are two ways to purchase the items for your design, one is managed by me and the other is managed by you. Orders managed by me are made once you have approved the final purchasing list and paid all relevant fees. If you’d like to manage ordering yourself you can do so by using a detailed shopping list. Please note that trade-only items must be purchased through me.
How do you price your full-service projects?
In an effort to keep from inflating the total price, I bill my full service projects at an hourly rate of $110. This ensures that you only pay for the actual time I spend working on your project. In order to keep the project within your budget, I estimate the total amount of time expected and give you a range such as 20-30 hours. I track my hours using a digital time tracking tool, which I’ve been using for years. I bill on the 1st and 15th of each month and won’t go beyond the expected range without written approval or change of scope.
What regional areas do you serve?
My business is located in Dallas, Texas. In-person projects take place throughout the metroplex, but with applicable travel fees can also be anywhere in the U.S. and Europe. Working with me through my e-design service is possible for anyone who has access to purchase from U.S. retailers.
How involved in the process will I need to be?
The design process is a collaborative effort between the two of us. Your input regarding taste and lifestyle is key in order for me to design a space that is tailored to you. Once the design direction is determined, you will need to approve each purchase before an order is made.
What are your clients afraid of?
Often, my clients are afraid of having a designer come to see the space that they’ve created and see what they consider to be mistakes they’ve made. But they shouldn’t worry because the best thing they can do is to show me how they are actually living and using their space so that together, we can figure out how to design their space for both function and style.
