FAQ

CAN I REALLY AFFORD A DESIGNER? 


 

Life's complicated. Design shouldn't be. I offer transparent, reasonable, all-in pricing that outlines total cost and timeline. You know exactly what you are paying, before the work has even begun. No surprise billing.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I WILL REALLY GET THE LOOK I WANT? 


 

Many fear a designer will impose a strong aesthetic or their favorite style on your home. Fear not.I dedicate time getting to know you, the way you live, your dreams, your family, and your expectations. I ask for inspiration photos of rooms you like. Each design I create is new and unique to the person. 


 

WHAT IF I WANT TO INCORPORATE ITEMS I ALREADY OWN? 


 

One of my favorite parts about the design process is “shopping” your home. If you have any items in the room we are working on, in a different room, your attic, basement, or even stuff your Mom wants to give you, we can certainly incorporate those treasured items. I will be honest with you if I think a certain item does not work in a particular space. 


 

WILL YOU TRY TO SELL ME FURNITURE I DON'T NEED? 


 

No. While I source the furniture you should buy, you do the purchasing yourself. I pass trade discounts on to you. 


 

ARE YOU A LOCAL DESIGNER OR AN E-DESIGNER? 


 

Both. For local clients, I usually visit your home several times during the process, depending on what the client wants. I also utilize my online platform, which gives both local and distant clients the opportunity to communicate with me 24/7.
