“ASK ME ANYTHING” DESIGN CONSULTATION
Do you need some design advice? Hire me on an as-needed, hourly basis, at any time before or during your remodeling or decorating project.

I will answer your design questions and offer ideas, suggestions and guidance as you lead me on a tour of your home. This introductory service is also a great way for us to get to know each other before undertaking larger, more complicated design projects

“COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION” FULL SERVICE KITCHEN AND BATH DESIGN
Embarking on a bath or kitchen remodel? As your interior designer, my job is to work with you to determine your wants and needs for the project, create a customized design to satisfy those needs, then document that design and see it through construction. You’ll be assured that, not only will your remodeled space be practical and functional, but also that your flooring, cabinetry, tile, countertop, lighting, window and wall treatments will coordinate, look beautiful, and fit your taste and lifestyle.
HOW IT WORKS:
1. INITIAL CONSULTATION
We begin your kitchen or bath design with an initial consultation. Together we look at your project and discuss design and functionality issues. I ask you questions (and really listen to your answers): what works and what doesn’t? How will the space be used, and by whom? What do you want it to look and feel like when it’s done?
Within 24-48 hours, I will prepare a proposal for you that summarizes the project details, the services I will provide to design and implement your project, and my design fees for the project. Design fees are based on an estimated number of hours it will take to see your project from design through construction. You’ll receive an estimated range of hours, so you will know exactly what to expect.
2. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT PHASE
I will create a functional layout of the space, including electrical and plumbing, appliances, and custom cabinetry design. I will also source options for tile, flooring, countertop, lighting and plumbing fixtures, wall and window treatments, cabinet hardware, and more. Code compliance is always taken into account when designing a space.
During this phase, I will present the design to you as it develops, and refine it to meet your aesthetic and functional needs.
To communicate your design, I will create and present floor plan drawings, elevations and renderings, as well as written specifications. These will be used to obtain contractor quotes.
3. IMPLEMENTATION PHASE
Once the design has been approved, we begin the implementation phase. I work with, and bring to your project, experienced, reputable, high-quality licensed general contractors and subcontractors (such as painters, electricians, plumbers, tile setters, and cabinet makers). I prefer to bring my own team, as I’ve found the projects run more smoothly this way, but I am also able to work with your contractor if you already have one.
During construction, I am “on-call” to answer questions as they arise, whether from the clients or from the construction crew. I visit your site periodically, facilitate the procurement of all finish materials and products, and review items and finishes prior to installation.
My goal is always to be as helpful as possible to the contractor, making sure he has all the information/materials/instructions he needs to complete the project, and also be as helpful as possible to the clients, providing information, guidance and support.
4. FINISHING TOUCHES
I love to see a kitchen or bath finished with artwork and accessories. As the final part of my implementation service, we set a budget for purchases, then I select, shop for, and place those finishing touches like artwork, towels and accessories, leaving you with a completed project ready for those great “after” photos.
