Once we've outlined your objectives & budget, we'll develop a customized plan for you. We recommend the approximate number of hours needed, and a budget for the furnishings and any other purchases you'd like to make.
There are two ways to purchase design services:
3 hours, $350 flat fee.
$150/hr, 10 hour minimum.
Or, are you not really sure where to even start or what it would cost, and would like some advice?
Give us a call or send an email - we offer consultations at no charge.
Our HALF-DAY SESSIONS also make a great gift.
Some behind the scenes of where we started and where we ended up. Sometimes people are ready to get rid of practically everything and just start over.
It's really surprising what can be done largely with what you already have, a little bit of cash and a lot of imagination. So if you see some aspect of your space in any of those before photos above, don’t despair.
An interesting aspect of this loft is the majority of the furnishings are vintage, previously owned, or even found. This is a fantastic way to create a space or to supplement an overall design. It adds enormous character, and allows you to bring in items that may not have otherwise been in the budget. And most of it gets purchased locally.
The world doesn't need that much more furniture made when there is so much amazing stuff already out there.
