"The secret of getting ahead is getting started."—Mark Twain

The process is simple.

Following a complimentary introduction call to learn more about you and your needs,  if moving ahead, every project starts with a two-hour home consultation. This consultation is impactful! It will move you forward with confidence towards those design goals that you have been wanting to implement but have not had the time or the experience to complete. 

It will either be a stand-alone working session where you get immediate design direction such as paint colours, determining 

how large your island should be, or choosing some backsplash tiles that you have been contemplating for a week in your kitchen. Otherwise, for more involved decor or design projects, this meeting will be an information gathering session to learn more about your personal design aesthetic and needs, timelines, and taking initial measures. This will help determine a scope of work and is a much needed stepping stone to your home's beautiful transition. This consult is a pre-paid service. —$425 plus hst
