I believe design should be affordable and accessible to everyone. I also believe in supporting local businesses, craftspeople and artists. Thrift stores, flea markets, reusing, upcycling...all good! I generally don't do super high-end design. I prefer to work with everyday budgets and design dilemmas.
In-Home Design Session $400/2 hours
Want to work with a designer to create an action plan for a self-managed project? Would you love to work with a designer but don't have the budget? I bring my design expertise, organizational skills and plenty of ideas to get your project started.
Here's what we can accomplish in a two-hour working session:
review your existing floor plan and come up with a new one
answer questions about the work you're considering
suggest new furniture and accessories to be purchased, along with specifications (e.g., a 36" round semi-flush light fixture in a brushed gold finish)
colour consultation and paint selections
plan window treatments and flooring
discuss lighting requirements
At the end of our meeting you will have a detailed scope of work document that itemizes the work to be done and next steps. This crucial document will allow you to get accurate pricing from trades or a general contractor and puts you in the driver's seat to manage your project. TIP: Have a clear scope of work document before contacting trades for pricing. You won't receive an accurate quote otherwise and cost over-runs are more likely.
If, down the road, you'd like more design advice book a follow-up consultation via email or phone or another in-home visit.
Hourly Rate for on-going projects is $150 per hour.
