FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does a full service project take?

We estimate that a full service design plan takes approximately 4-6 weeks from the time you approve the floor plan to the time we are presenting the completed design plan to you. From there, ordering begins and that process usually takes 8-12 weeks. Most of our contracts are in the three to six month range for standard full service. At the end of your contract, your room(s) will be complete!

Who will my designer be?

Every project is designed by both designers. You will also have the support of our whole team throughout the process. 

What is your markup?

We love this question and get it all the time. We have relationships with over one hundred trade partners and mark up our items to cover the cost of procurement, product management, inspection, and installation. When items arrive damaged or incorrectly, our team handles the problem behind the scenes working with the vendor, receiver, and local repair people to rectify the issue quickly.  We are always lower than retail and if we can't beat retail, we will provide you with the information to purchase on your own.

Can you recommend trades?

We have a team of trades who we use on all of our full service projects when this type of work is specified. We will manage the estimates, overseeing their work, and providing them with the information to complete the job. No need for you to google search or price shop. Our professional team consists of  painters,  a wallpaper hanger, a carpenter, a handyman, an upholsterer, and a window treatment workroom. We are not general contractors and have several local area builders who we recommend to our full service clients who are renovating or building. 

What kind of budget should I have for full service design?

Our full service interior design budget for a room that is completed down to the last accessory ranges from $100-$135/square foot. 

What is included in the designer for a day?

Our designer for a day includes both designers in your home for up to four hours tackling any design challenges you have. Following your session, the designers will load their suggestions into an online project guide for you to implement on your own. This includes links for retail items, instructions on how/where to hang items, paint colors, etc. Following your session you will have one week of follow support for the items discussed during your session.

What is the investment?

Our designer for a day service is $2,500. Our full service design package begins at $5,000 per room.

Do you offer evening and weekend appointments?

Our studio is open Monday through Friday  and we do not offer evening or weekend appointments. We do our best to accommodate our clients' busy schedules and have done consultations and presentations remotely with no issue.

Will you photograph my project?

We love photographing our projects if our schedule allows it and ask permission at the time of contract signing. We submit our work to local and national publications, and have a section of our contract that allows you to opt out if preferred. We never give out our clients' names or addresses.
