    Design Fee Structures

    You may be concerned that you will pay high fees that are beyond your budget. Not true, there are a variety of fee structures available, some of the most common are: Hourly, Flat Fee, Square Footage, and Percentage of Project Cost. All are based to be client centric and value based. Often I release my discounts to you, enabling those discounts to enlarge the budget for your project, or cover the costs of my services.

    Your budget…

    I believe that developing the budget should be a partnership with the client. As the client, you should take an active role, and be honest about your budget. As a professional I will access your needs and help you to determine where to spend and where to save, prioritizing expenses while creating an interior that is within your budget.

    Also, remember that not everything has to be completed at once. I can develop a long-range plan, consulting with you to establish a list of priorities, starting with rooms you feel need attention first, and determine a time line for accomplishing the entire project. Working within the constraints of your budget, I will draw up a scheme that expresses your personal style and meets your individual requirements, while at the same time helping you to avoid costly errors by making wise purchases that fit your framework.

    I will help you assess the things you have, and incorporate them into the design as we deem appropriate to the end goal of your space. You are always in control and make the final decisions.

    Do take in mind that the cost of projects will be determined by the following aspects:

    The size of the project, e.g. one room versus the whole house; The time frame in which the project needs to be completed, any special needs or constraints, and availability of resources and materials.


    Sometimes simple changes or additions can make a huge difference. A room can be transformed with the impactful use of color, rearrangement of existing furniture, the introduction of atmospheric lighting or mirrors, clever and creative choice of window treatments, accessories, cushions and throws, none of which need be expensive.
