Frequently asked questions

Why do I need an interior designer?
Just like any professional service, we are trained to see things that others may not. We have a keen eye for spotting details that may or may not work out in the end result. We are visualizers and can imagine your space before it even exists, and we are there to help you stay on track and make decisions quickly and efficiently.
What is the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator?
In simple terms Decorators, will do just that, pick out new décor and sometimes paint and soft furnishings for your home. Typically they are not required to obtain any schooling before working as a Decorator. Designers will have completed either a Diploma or Degree in Interior design and can work on a wide range of projects; from Residential Homes to large scale Commercial projects. They are expected to understand building codes and building practices that enable them to put construction packages together.

We like to think our customer service sets us apart from the competition. We truly love working with people, it’s the reason we chose this career path. Nothing is more rewarding than a happy client that is absolutely in love with their new space!
What does an interior designer typically cost?
We tailor our estimates to the size of your project, and to the level of involvement you need from us. Everyone is different and we are happy to assist you as much or as little as you may need. Some clients only need us to select some furniture for their new apartment, which is only a few hours work, while other clients are building their dream home from the ground up and will require more time to nail down every detail. Our pricing has always seemed to work for each individual client.
What is your design process?
All of our designs begin with meeting with the client. That is where we draw our inspiration from, and our sharp ears always pick up on subconscious cues from our client on what they are envisioning. From the conceptual stage on we are developing and refining your spaces identity, making sure that it remains cohesive through out the entire project.
Can you help me pick out furniture/decor for my home?
