Initial Consultation

It starts with great conversation, also known as the initial consultation. I know the right questions to ask to uncover your goals, ideas, and design style. I strive to be a trusted advisor – once I get to know my clients, I am very intuitive in selecting what will work wonderfully in each space.

To prepare for the initial consultation, I’ll provide you with a questionnaire which will help me get a good feel for your style, how you live, and the dreams and goals you have for your space. Any inspiration images or ideas you’re considering can also be shared in advance so we can really maximize our time together.

After the initial consultation, if you’re interested in moving forward with my services, we can chat about next steps, and I’ll walk you through your options. The aim of the process is to be as fun, accessible, and stress-free as possible for you, and for the foundation of our collaboration to be based on transparency and trust.

What to expect

A consultation typically lasts 1.5 hours and includes some or all of the following, depending on your needs:

  • A walk-through of your home and a discussion of each room’s function and furniture pieces
  • An opportunity for us to chat about layout, storage needs, furniture options, lighting, materials and finishes, window treatments, styling, or any questions you may have
  • A discussion about how to best maximize your budget
  • Big ideas and inspiration for your space

At the end of our time together, you’ll have a ton of design ideas to envision for your home.

In the days following, I’ll send you a Design Consultation Summary with notes from our time together plus all my preliminary ideas. The summary will also outline the design intent and goals for your space, the scope of work, and the estimated timeline to do it all. I will also provide you with a fee proposal based on your individual project scope and intent.
