Here’s how we can work together:
Large painted samples are the single most important tool to have when selecting paint colors.
Here’s an inside look at how I use this system to choose the perfect colors for your space:
- Over 150 large 11 x 14 Color Boards are used at each color consultation along with your traditional fan decks.
- We always put white behind large color sample so the color is not misrepresented by the current wall color.
- Hold your sample in the right direction: vertically for walls, horizontally for floors & ceilings.
- Always Compare. Compare. Compare to get a true read of the undertone of the color.
New Construction or Renovation Design
Step One: Consultation
It all starts with a meeting to assess the site and explore your vision for the project. I’ll uncover what’s most important to you in your new home or room, we’ll define your style, and I’ll evaluate what will work for your space.
We’ll also talk details: budget, timeline, requirements, materials, other trades, and next steps.
Step Two: Planning
The fun begins! I’ll create detailed layouts to plan the space based on your priorities and budget. I’m happy to work directly with your general contractor to finalize the plans before kicking off construction. I work closely with Lown Homes on many new construction and renovation projects.
Step Three: Color
Color is my specialty. The correct selection of color undertones can create flow and harmony in your home. That’s why I dedicate a phase in the construction or renovation project to comparing and selecting the right colors for each of your rooms and finishes.
Step Four: Material Selection
I focus on timeless, classic hard finishes that will create a beautiful home that you can enjoy for years to come. We’ll consider your style and functional needs that we defined during our consultation – as well as the color undertones we identified – to make selections for your cabinetry, hardware, countertops, flooring, plumbing, and lighting.
Step Five: Building
I’ll work alongside your General Contractor to ensure your design plans are carried out. I have an eye for detail and will conduct site visits and walkthroughs to make sure the correct materials and being installed and that the highest standard of quality is being met.
One Day Makeover
Step One: Evaluation
You’ll start by filling out a questionnaire. Once I’ve received and reviewed your questionnaire, I will contact you to set up an appointment to begin!
Our time together will kick-off with an evaluation of your current space. We’ll talk about what’s working, what’s not, and what you’d love your room to look and feel like. I’ll develop a checklist for the project and we’ll get to work!
Step Two: Simplify
The first step to a pleasing space is to declutter. Simplifying your room by removing unnecessary items will make any space more open, inviting, and peaceful.
Step Three: Color
Color plays a powerful role in how comfortable a room feels. We’ll discuss color undertones, how the colors in your room are currently interacting, and how to make the right color selections for the room (as well as practical ways to inject those colors).
Step Four: Use What You Have
We’ll use what you have on hand to create a more functional, comfortable layout. I’ll work with you to arrange furniture, stage inviting conversation areas, and create flow through the room.
Step Five: Happy Client Details
The goal of our day will be to completely transform your space using what you already have, but you may want to add or replace items with new.
I will leave you with general notes, recommendations, and tips for shopping. You can purchase items based on this list as your schedule and budget allow.
(Optional) Step Six: Shopping
Need a partner in crime? No problem! I’ve got you covered. I provide shopping services at $100/hour with a 2-hour minimum. *Includes a percentage of my designer discounts where applicable along with the confidence of purchasing items that will give you joy in your newly curated home.
Price: $550 (includes 4-6 hours of design time).
Color & Design Coaching
Step One: Questionnaire
I’ll provide you with a questionnaire to complete so I can get familiar with your design goals and questions. Once I’ve received and reviewed your questionnaire, we will book our consultation.
Step Two: Set your goals
In your questionnaire, you’ll be asked to define your goals for our consultation. What do you want to accomplish in your space? What end result are you working towards? During our color & design consultation, I’ll help you begin to bring together your ideal look and feel.
Step Three: Clarify your questions
In your questionnaire, you’ll also define your big design questions and hang-ups. During our consultation, we’ll work through these dilemmas – starting with the most pressing issue – and I’ll help you find solutions.
Step Four: Set your project scope
It’s important for me to understand what limitations we’re working in as far as time, budget, and scope. Is starting over with all new furniture an option, or do you want to work with what you already own? Can walls be torn down or is construction work off-limits? You’ll set your budget, time, and scope limits ahead of time so I know what options to pursue.
Step Five: Consultation
Unless a virtual approach is requested, we’ll meet in person at your home for our consultation, which will last a minimum of two hours (additional time can be added as needed). With your goals, questions, and project scope already mapped out in your questionnaire, we’ll get to work!
$250 for the first 2 hours. $100/hour for additional design time. (In-person or virtual options available)
