There are a lot of inequities in the world of Interior Design today that nobody talks about - until it's too late. Not knowing how to start, what it will look like, what it will cost & who to trust within a proven framework, costs people more money, hours of frustration, sleepless nights, disappointing results and being labeled as a difficult client.
Can you Relate? I'm here to change that.
My award winning, highly sought after, signature approach is a combination of soulful systems, strategy and mentorship, that sets you up as 'the design authority' behind your vision so you get what you want and control your project. In fact, unless you have earned an interior design portfolio of proof through education and experience, I believe my unique approach is the only way to set you up to champion your own project and avoid unwanted surprises.
MAYBE THAT'S WHY I'M CALLED A PIRATE SHIP AMONG THE YACHTS.
FINALLY A BETTER WAY TO DO INTERIOR DESIGN
Home design transformations, whether for resale, renovations or refresh can be intimidating, expensive, full of surprises and frustrating for many reasons (read more here).
HOW WOULD IT FEEL TO TRANSFORM YOUR HOME WITH MORE CONFIDENCE & LESS CHAOS?
I know that finding the right designer to bring your dreams to life is a choice not to be taken lightly, that's why I offer free consultations to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals and your budget. So, Here's How To Start The Perfect Design:
REQUEST A 15-20 MINUTE COMPLIMENTARY
Coffee Conversation with Karen. This is our introductory telephone call to discuss the basic details of your project and address your initial questions. You'll also receive a link to download my free 55 page "Interior Design Playbook to Planning A Successful Project" when you schedule this design coffee chat. This is a visual guide (perfect for visual learners) to help you quickly gain clarity on key design decisions that need to be made in the proper sequence so that you can begin to plan the perfect reveal without surprises. It also includes a Budget & Investment Guide for service details and complete pricing transparency.
FREE 45 minute project discovery meeting via zoom or in my studio, is an opportunity for me to learn more about your design preferences, budget, priorities & vision in greater detail so that a plan can be created to achieve it and I need concrete information before I can make educated deductions. I'll also show you how I plan, organize & deliver designs without guessing and surprises & guarantee you'll love it! How would that feel? Because information is knowledge and knowledge is power, this may be all you need to create a cohesive design plan yourself. If interior design services are needed, you can delegate work to me that you don't have time to do or feel confident doing yourself by the day or by the room. For larger projects, I use a program that I developed that allows me to forecast my design fee based on your project details and scope of work. You can expect this estimate within two weeks after our discovery meeting.
DESIGN & DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Once the project estimate is approved and the contract is signed, you'll pick the month (based on availability) you want to start & we'll kick off your project with a "Vision Meeting" to serve as an anchor for your project's success. We'll discuss the initial selections during this meeting and use your feedback as a basis for finalizing your selections together as we move forward. I don't believe in settling - your hard earned money deserves better! I believe in testing before investing in order to accurately communicate functionality & style using specific design details within the context of space to elevate your standard of living. Obviously, I'm not talking about typical construction drawings and vague 3D designs that leave you uninspired, wondering and hoping. I'm talking about beautiful imagery, GORGEOUS, original, one-of-a-kind designs that no one else has & fabulous tactile samples - tailored just for you. Design fee could be a fixed fee to avoid feeling nickled & dimed or could be hourly whichever best fits your needs.
