SERVICES OVERVIEW

To provide impeccable, appropriate designs at affordable rates, we must both have a full understanding of your vision and expectations.  Collaboration can be as simple as a consultation to full interior architectural design services.  You can expect the design process to have many steps:

  • Getting to know you and the scope of the project.

  • Setting a timetable for design deliverables.

  • Developing the concept into a set of drawings including 2D and 3D drawings.

  • Polishing the concept using visual design stories.

  • Providing a list of trades specialists and fielding design intent questions during the construction process.

  • Adding a few personal touches through limited furnishings and accessories selections, styling, and staging.

 
VISUAL DESIGN STORIES

Visual design stories are a compilation of images that denote color; texture; mood; finishes direction; and lighting, hardware, furniture and accessories selections.  They are a guide to refining the vision for your project.

2D AND 3D DRAWINGS

I offer 2D and 3D drawings which are tools essential to expressing the design intent clearly between the owner, interior designer, and contractor.

RATE

I provide two rate structures depending on the size and scale of the project. 

An on-site initial consultation, up to 1 1/2 hours, can be set up for a minimal fee of $99.

 

Hourly Rate: All work is performed on an hourly basis at the rate of $100 per hour.  This rate is provided for smaller design projects where drawings are not needed or required.

Fixed Fee Rate:  A fixed fee is quoted for projects where full design drawings and specifications are necessary to visualize the design.  I highly recommend this option!  Average costs for a kitchen design are $3,500 - $5,000 and $2,000-3,500 for a bathroom depending on the size and level of finishes selections and details.  A discount is provided for full home designs and selections.

This process has several phases including:

  • An initial meeting is arranged for determining the needs, wants, and goals for the design.  This includes time to obtain site measurements and pictures.

  • The next phase is the FUN part!  I take all of the information gathered and provide TWO designs per area.  The design options typically include two different layouts, aesthetics, and finishes and fixtures selections represented through a set of 2D and 3D drawings, visual design story boards, and finishes samples and selections.

  • To ensure the design is tailored to you, I offer one round of edits and reselections.

  • After gaining design approval, I create a full set of design drawings to include completed plans, elevations, perspectives, general notes, specifications, and visual design story boards which are neatly bound in a folder for easy reference by all (homeowner and contractor/s).

  • Once the design is complete, assistance with contractor selection, pricing, construction administration, and furnishings and accessories selections can be performed on an hourly basis.
