Design Consultation

We meet with you in your home for up to 2 hours to explore the details of your project, getting to know you, your family and your lifestyle and building a foundation of trust and confidence that we’ll need in order to create a home that is uniquely your own. Be ready with all your questions and wish lists during this paid service. Please note that our Furnish & Style/ Renovation Design projects always start with a design consultation. The fee will be applied to your design fee if you choose to go ahead with us.


Who this is for :

  • Those who want personalized design ideas and resources

  • Those who want to dip their toes into an interior design project but aren’t ready to commit to full-service design

  • Those just getting started on a full-service project

  • Needs help picking colors for a room/ whole house


How it works :


If you live in or around Alameda, CA or the SF Bay Area I'll meet at your place to walk through your home and discuss the improvements you’re dreaming of. (Live elsewhere? We’ll meet via Zoom!) You’ll let me know which pieces you want to keep, which items you’re ready to get rid of, and anything else you want me to know. We’ll discuss aesthetics, function, and budget to make sure we design a plan that works perfectly for your family. Finally, we’ll get everything written down and ready for action. I’ll help you create a master to-do list with my design recommendations, laying the groundwork for the rest of your project (whether you continue working with me or take it on yourself).

2 hr Consultation : $250.00

1 hr Consultation : $150.00 ( Only available for Virtual Clients)

(This fee will be applied towards the design services if you choose to move forward with our offerings.)
