The first step towards assembling and completing a good design is to clarify my client’s
objectives, constraints, and aesthetics. Therefore I ask a lot of questions.
Our first meeting will be to assess your needs & goals and to begin to recognize any constraints that may exist. If applicable, I take notes and a photo survey of favorite belongings that we may incorporate into the space(s).
Sometimes it takes a bit of research to know what feels authentic for you; you can feel free to bounce your ideas off of me; I will respond immediately to your communications via emails, texts and phone.
Based on our initial meeting and follow up conversations I will create a proposal describing the scope of work your project requires.
THEREAFTER MY SERVICES ARE
• Concept Design Development and Space Planning
• Drawings: existing conditions, design solutions through plans and elevations,
and notes/drawings showing electrical needs.
• Specification, procurement and fabrication of materials and finishes
• Site visits until hand-off
• Interfacing with the contractors and architect
• Project management (if wanted)
My fees will be either on an hourly basis or can be a fixed fee dependent upon the scope of work. Typically a flat fee is the best way to approach a comprehensive project. Since I pass along all of my designer discounts to my clients, my compensation comes from the time and effort I am giving you. Every project is different and must be assessed individually.
