Design Consultations

 

Design Consultations are conducted on an hourly basis where design ideas and guidance are provided.  As they are hourly, our services are available for all levels of service at the discretion of our client.  Our clients also have the freedom to complete the ideas themselves or hire a designer to work with them to complete their design.

For clients that like to do the work themselves or just need some guidance and direction, a Design Consultation is a great place to start with any decorating project.

A Design Consultation is a way to save our clients’ time, money and those costly mistakes by getting expert advice before starting a project.

Some of the things which we do in a Design Consultation are:

  • General Decorating Ideas
  • Creation of a Decorating Plan
  • Window and Wall Treatment Suggestions
  • Paint Selection & Coordination
  • General Furniture Layout
  • Selection of Interior Finishes: Flooring, Cabinets, Counters, Fixtures, Lighting & Paint
  • Color Coordination of any Fabrics, Flooring, Wallcovering or Finishes
  • Review of Artwork and Accessory Placement

A Design Consultation normally lasts 2 to 4 hours, during which our clients receive an impressive array of design ideas, tips, and advice.

 

HOW IT WORKS

 

1) Schedule a consultation. There is a 2-hour minimum.

2) You will be sent a Welcome Packet which walks you through the appointment process, as well as a client questionnaire and agreement to be returned before the appointment.

3) We meet in person at your home and get started.  Our appointments are an active and collaborative process, and we like to cover as much as possible with you during our time together. 

4) At the end of the appointment, you will be emailed the appointment report of the items covered. If paint colors were selected, you would receive color chips of those colors.  Payment is due the day of the appointment.

5) If additional services are requested beyond the appointment, the scope of those services will be discussed, and a proposal will be prepared for approval. 

 

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

“Gail is easy to work with and has wonderful ideas. We did all of the work to save money, but it was Gail’s ideas that helped transform my bedroom into my own private retreat.”

“Working with Gail is like having our own HGTV Designer. My husband and I would never have been able to agree upon our decorating selections without her help.”

“How Refreshing! Gail is not like other Designers you hear about and run away from. She is honest, easy to work with, and did not make me get rid of my favorite old chair. She really practices her motto; I will never say ‘That’s Got To Go.”  Thank You!”

“What a wonderful service! I received personalized decorating advice and more information in one hour, then in all of the decorating books I have read.”

“I never thought I could afford to hire a Designer, until Gail!”
