I’m a firm believer that everyone has a unique design style. That doesn’t mean that you don’t gravitate towards some styles more than others. To find out your design style, you can take my design style quiz here. You can also find a list of different design styles and examples here.

This varies but my services are designed to help people in every budget (as low as $75!), giving you the tools so you feel empowered in creating the space of your dreams! You can learn more about my services here.

Yes! Interior designers are here to help you through your remodel or project and be a liaison between you and the contractor/suppliers. The key is finding a designer that fits well with you and that you trust. Remember, you will be spending a lot of time with them. Here’s a helpful article for you: How to Find the Best Fit Interior Designer.

Remodeling is a big decision. It can completely upset your daily life but it doesn’t have to be difficult and you do NOT have to go through the horror stories that you hear. The key is to be prepared. My article, How to Prepare for a Remodel, and my printable Remodel Checklist are great places to start.

This depends on the scope of work. A typical full gut kitchen remodel generally takes at least 2-3 weeks in preparation and 3-5 weeks in actual construction. You can find my full breakdown of a typical remodel here.

  1. Determine your budget for the project. (Helpful article: How to Set a Budget for a Remodel.)
  2. Take my Design Style Quiz.
  3. Find a designer that can work within that budget and that is a good fit for you and understands the construction process. (Read my “How to Interview a Designer” article here.)
  4. Purchase my Remodel Checklist (only $7!)
  5. Create a list of questions you’d like to ask the contractor. (Helpful article: Best Questions to Ask my Potential Contractor.)
  6. Call around to several companies, ask your network of friends and family for referrals, review their social media and Google reviews, and schedule at least 3 consultations so you can make an educated decision.

While it’s ideal to hire an interior designer before or at the same time as your trusted contractor, it is never too late to have one come in to assist in a project. Keep in mind that they may not always be able to reverse decisions previously made due to the construction process or contract.

Absolutely! I work closely with contractors to help clients make quicker and clearer decisions. I can also jump in to consult on choices that may overwhelm a client such as light fixture placement, paint colors, and even drywall texture. If hired by you, my main goal is to assist in making your job easier by getting you answers quicker and also being able to advise the client on the construction process. (For more info, see Top 10 Reasons Why Contractors Should Hire a Designer.) Hint: I can also save both parties money by not having to backtrack or redo work because I can lay out the full picture from the very beginning.
