Can you walk us through a project from start to finish?
The first step in my design process is working with the client. I ask questions about color, style, function, and budget. Next, I present all of the options for the design and work with the client to choose the final selections. Then, I secure the approvals. After that, I order the design elements, trace orders, and arrange for delivery. Finally, I install all of the design elements. I like to do it when the client is out, so they are surprised when they see the finished product.
What aesthetic are you known for?
I have completed interiors in almost every style. That being said, I like to create a comfortable, inviting atmosphere with an eclectic slant. I always include something unexpected involving color or a focal piece.
How do you ensure customer satisfaction?
I always strive to keep the client informed regarding the budget and a realistic completion schedule. They frequently change along the way. One way I achieve this is by making very thorough presentations to the client where I show colors, fabrics, and furnishings and how they all work together in their home.
