Full Service Styling
You may not need everything but you'd like some direction and assistance. Are you happy with the core elements of your home but need a little help tying it all together? This package is great for those who have recently moved to a new home or for those who are looking to freshen up their space by adding a few new pieces, updating window treatments, lighting and accessories. Utilizing what you already own or what we can quickly purchase we’ll transform your space with designer touches in a matter of weeks.
What is the payment policy?Depending on the service package you choose you will make 2-3 payments. Your first payment is a non-refundable retainer fee which initiates the concept development phase. The retainer fee is a part of our design service fee. Our design service fee is not a part of the furnishings and decor budget, cost of materials and contractor costs which are budgeted separately for full transparency.
What Exactly Does Full Service Interior Design Mean?Full service means creating a complete design for your project, from initial concept to the final installation. It is about letting us handle all the details from research to selection, purchasing and coordinating to installation. Full service applies to a full room or group of rooms or entire home in a single installation. Many of our clients like to work in phases, and so many of our full service projects are done one complete room at a time. Full service applies even if you already own some of the pieces we will use to complete your project.
Can I Use My Existing Furniture?Using your existing furniture is definitely encouraged and accepted. If you are considering our One Day Design, your desire to repurpose and reuse pieces would compliment this service. With that said, we are also very honest about what works and what doesn't - for example if a piece is just too big for the room, we will recommend moving it to another room where it might work better. We will also recommend donating/selling furniture that may not fit with the new design.
What Geographical Areas Do You Serve?We are located in Tampa, FL, but cover most of central and south Florida, Atlanta, and we have even had projects in Texas. If we are a good fit, then where you live doesn't matter as much. If you are located outside of Florida and you like what you have seen in our portfolio, and how we work, we would be happy to talk about your design needs, and can figure out the logistics from there.
How long will the project take?Each design project has an estimated timeline. Depending on the scope of work, your project could last anywhere from 8 weeks to 16 weeks. After we decide to work together your project is outlined on our project management sheet to keep us all on track on tasks and deadlines.
Can you refer us to a good Contractor? Architect? Painter? Etc.?Absolutely! We have long standing relationships with the professionals who we trust. We have high standards when it comes to keeping our clients happy, so we only work with the best. We don’t take referral kickbacks either; we just think they are the best in the industry!
What should I bring to the initial meeting?Reviewing any inspiration images that you have collected, such as from magazines or Pinterest, will help us further uncover your style and direction. It might also be a good idea to have some pictures of styles you do not like, so our designers know what to stay away from during your interior design project.
I have never worked with an interior design firm before, what is the process?Each project is unique. The first step is to setup the initial consultation, so we can discuss exactly what you are looking for and see if we can help. We will gather all necessary information to be able to define your style. Over a series of meetings, we will take what we’ve learned about you and your style and turn it into a thoughtful design for your home. We will present you with furniture plans and color palettes to look over, fabrics and materials to touch and see in your space, and images of furniture and lighting we’ve thoughtfully selected specifically for your home. We take your budget seriously and work hard to balance special, splurge-worthy pieces with every day, cost-conscious items. Depending on the scope of your project and the timeliness of your decision- making, this phase can take a couple of weeks (for one or two rooms) to a few months or more (for a full-scale design or remodel). Your feedback is vital during this phase so that we can be sure we are expertly translating your style into the perfectly designed home of your dreams.
What if I don’t like what you design for me?We promise not to take it personally! Please just tell us what you do not like and why, and we will source alternatives during the revisions period, It does take a little extra time at the beginning of the design process to get to know your taste. If you are having trouble visualizing the final outcome of your home, we can do photorealistic 3-D renderings.
Where do you shop?This greatly depends on the client’s budget, but I carefully source my selections based on quality regardless.We utilize a wide and varied group dealers, to-the- trade-only showrooms, local workrooms, and retail stores around the Florida and surrounding areas. It is entirely up to you whether you would like to see items in person. Many of our clients never see the furniture until it shows up in their home. Just your designer know your preference.
How much will my project cost?While every project is different, after 2 years in business, we can give you an accurate estimate of what you will need to spend to achieve your desired outcome. We will also work with you to create and stick to a budget based on your project’s scope of work. Some things to consider when creating a budget include how involved in the design process you want to be, how quickly you can make decisions, and if pursuing a remodel, how involved in project management you would like us to be.
Do I Have To Purchase All My Furnishings Through You?We always strive to make the design process easy and fun for our clients. Although we do not require you to purchase the items through us, a major part of what we do for you as your designer is we source all the beautiful and unique materials for your home, along with all the great furnishings to create that fully finished home. Instead of designing a beautiful space for you and then handing you the plans to go off and do your own purchasing and managing of all the small details, we do that all for you. That way we can manage and control all the fine details and issues that come up with the procurement phase. When you purchase your furniture through us, you never pay full MSRP. If you prefer to purchase items on your own, you will have to take on product management duties: - Schedule a time that coordinates with your clients calendar so that they can be present to receive the item(s) at their home (note: this requires some being available at the project site during the 3-5 hr delivery window). - Client responsibility: unpacking, photographing, updating your firm on product condition - Place items unopened in undisturbed area of their home. (Note: This method can cause item to fall outside of the 30-60 day replacement or return window.)
Do You Offer Free Consultations?We do charge a non-refundable fee for our initial in home consultation since we are blocking out a specific time on our calendar and traveling to your home to assess the space, make recommendations, give solid design advice and direction, and put togther a Fee Proposal for you. Most clients understand that this is a minimal cost compared to not calling in a professional from the beginning and possibly end up making costly mistakes. Clients have thanked us for the information and guidance that they receive during our consultation, and for them, it is absolutely worth the small investment into making their home one that they can be proud of through and through.
Will I Have The Opportunity To See And Sit On Pieces Before I Buy?Your comfort and pleasure is always at the forefront of our minds, and we understand that sometimes you may want to see and sit in the pieces before we order. We want to honor that as much as possible, but since we are not a furniture showroom, we will most likely not have pieces for you to sit and test before we order. What you can rely on is that we establish relationships with quality trade vendors and we take the time to learn all about their product lines, so we know how the products we specify are made and can guide you through the features and benefits of each product. Most showrooms do not stock all their upholstery frames, but we can provide the names of local trade showrooms in the DMV that may carry a similar item we have sourced for you to see, touch and feel. We take the time to understand what your specific needs are in an upholstered piece - how deep, how high, how tall, the cushion type etc, to help make the best decision with you.
Who is your typical client?Our clients are typically mid to high-end working professionals, who are looking to have a design team turn their dreams into realities. Our goal is to make the entire process painless to our clients while we take on all the hard labor and responsibilities of home design. We are known for creating an experience that is both memorable, enjoyable, and sought-after.
What is your preferred design style?We specialize in transitional, modern and contemporary design, but we are very capable of working with any design style our clients bring our way.
What is your hourly rate?For full-service design, we charge a flat rate designer fee for each project which is contingent on scope of work. Hourly rates only apply for additional work.
Do you have a project minimum?Yes. Currently, all projects require a minimum $20K investment for trade services, fixtures, and furnishings. This minimum varies on what it can cover based on the condition of the project and square footage of the property.
What is a Discovery Call?Our discovery call is a conversation up to 15-minutes where we discuss the overall expectations for your project. You may also ask any questions that you have before the in-person consultation.
How soon do you recommend booking an in-person consultation?As soon as possible! Our calendar fills fast and we only accept a certain number of clients per year.
How long will it be before the final design presentation?Our lead time typically involves 2-4 weeks of planning and procuring before our final presentation.
What determines if you will accept a project?We typically accept projects that involve implementing new design features and furnishings. This could be a new build or renovations. Although we seek to take on those projects, we do welcome full single-room transformations and quick turn around investment property projects as well.
How long does it take to complete a project?The average project completion would happen 8-12 weeks after the letter of agreement has been signed. However, due to COVID-19, some products extend our typical 8–12-week process to 18-24 weeks.
Do you offer contractors?Absolutely, you also have the option to utilize your own preferred contractors. Please note that you will assume all responsibility for your contractor’s work.
Do you travel?OF COURSE! Travel arrangements can be made for our team to service your home.
