HOW MUCH SHOULD I BUDGET?
We work with clients in a few different ways so we can accommodate different budgets. For our full service design, our
clients typically have furnishing budgets beginning at $40,000 per room. We charge a flat fee for our design services and determine the design fee upfront when we begin your project. Our design fees begin at $5,000 per room with a two-room 
minimum.
 

WILL I RECEIVE YOUR TRADE PRICING?
We are fortunate to have relationships with so many talented vendors and we love incorporating custom and one-of-a-kind pieces to make every design unique. These relationships require a time and financial commitment, and it is our policy to price our products so they are competitive with retail. Our pricing includes our team managing the entire ordering process for you, so you never have to lift a finger. Our design fee is based on purchases being managed by our firm.

CAN YOU USE MY EXISTING PIECES?
While we do our best to incorporate heirlooms and antiques into your design if they are compatible with the layout of the space and your design aesthetic, we cannot guarantee the inclusion of your existing pieces and will be frank and let you know if we do not think they work well with our design. But at the end of the day this is YOUR home and we can make (almost) anything work.

 

HOW MUCH TIME DOES THIS PROCESS TAKE?
Every project is unique and we’ll provide an estimated timeline in your proposal. The design phase takes anywhere from 8-10
weeks for a typical project. From there, ordering, furniture production, shipping, and project management can take
anywhere from 12 - 30 weeks, and up to a full year+ depending on the scope of your project.
A typical furnishing project takes about 16-20 weeks from start to finish, and a renovation or build project can take a year or more. We recommend securing a designer at least 6-8 months in advance of any upcoming deadlines.

HOW OFTEN CAN WE TALK?
Once we've officially started your project, we're available by email during business hours and are happy to schedule calls to
talk through any questions you have about the process. We’ll find out upfront how involved you want to be and how often you want updates, then we’ll manage the communication from there so you can enjoy the process without overwhelm or anxiety.

 

CAN YOU RECOMMEND A CONTRACTOR/TRADES?
Partnering with professional tradespeople is a crucial part of our process. We'll work with our team of trades to prepare estimates for the work we recommend and oversee their progress throughout your project. If you are already working with a licensed contractor, your proposal will detail how we'll communicate and collaborate with their team to ensure a seamless process.

WHAT IF I DON'T LOVE THE DESIGN?
The research phase of every project is incredibly detailed and thorough so we have a complete understanding of your design
style and lifestyle. Every proposal includes a certain number of reselections. In cases where you are unsure of an item and it's
something we know you'll love, we'll state our case as to why it's "the one" for you. These items are oftentimes the ones our clients tell us they love most.


WHAT IF THERE ARE ISSUES?
We'll be working closely together for an extended period of time, and there may be delays or frustrations along the way. It is our commitment to manage any issues and provide open and honest communication so you are never left in the dark. We pride ourselves on providing an enjoyable and seamless experience and a beautiful end result.
