We value being affordable designers who come alongside you to create a home that you love and reflect your story. Our services range from a Complete Design Plan to a one-hour consultation.  This sheet acts to give you an approximate total to include in your budget when considering our services.  For example, if you are interested in the transformations found on our social media, we would recommend you budget for the Complete Design Plan as well as Accessorizing and Installation. 


Complete Design Plan includes:

  • 3D rendering allowing you to see your completed space

  • Furniture selection

  • Area rug selection

  • Paint selection

  • Lighting

  • Wall Art 

  • Flooring 

You can expect a typical living space (approximately 16'x25') such as living rooms, family rooms, great rooms, and some bathrooms to cost about $500. Smaller areas (approximately 10x12) including bedrooms, dens, dining rooms, or some bathrooms cost about $350. Full kitchen remodels vary depending on the scope of the project and can range from $350 to $700. Our designers will record their hours and charge according to their time at $40 per hour. If two designers work on your space together the charge becomes $60/hour. Initial consults, regardless if two designers arrive will cost $40/hour. The above totals are estimates, however we make every effort to stay within these figures.  


This option gives you a great plan to implement yourself. However, we would be happy to continue to work with you regarding phase 2, which includes accessorizing and installation. 


Accessorizing and Installation include: 

  • Choosing and installing wall art, including mirrors. 

  • Designing and hanging gallery walls.

  • Shopping for accessories.

  • Ordering furniture.

  • Decorating mantles, shelves.

  • Centerpieces

  • Arranging furniture and rugs.

Some clients need help pulling a room together with accessories, pillows, and wall art. A typical room installed and staged costs around $400 excluding the cost of accessories, but will be billed hourly at $40/hour. Again, if two designers are present for installation the charge becomes $60/hr, this does not include the installers fee.


A la Cart Selections

Some clients require specific one-time recommendations, for example, flooring, countertops, lighting, tile, rug, furniture placement, or wall art. This service can include shopping for accessories and staging billed hourly at $ 40/hour.


Project Management

 Includes coordinating contractors/builders/tradespeople/painters etc. and developing project timelines. Costs range from $300-600 depending on project scale and hourly work required. 


Services and Fees

This an example of a 3D rendering you will receive at our design presentation. This client asked us to keep their existing furniture in their design.

 Here are a few examples of our projects and their cost. This sweet homeowner asked us to design, shop, install, order and assemble.  This room cost $800 including design time, shopping hours and staging. 

Before & After

This room required less design and shopping, it totaled $200  with the installation.
