Interior Design Clarity Sessions
My design concepts have won numerous awards yet I believe this is my signature service - why? Because I'm hearing about and seeing the need more and more and I love to empower others to design. One of my super powers is the ability to reduce complex concepts into simple step by step systems. Would clarity and focus end the battle of design overwhelm for you? Would a step by step action plan give you the confidence to move forward? Are you frustrated with your attempts at design? Don't feel bad - design isn't as easy as the DIY Design Machine leads you to believe and those misconceptions combined with your creativity can kill your design! 20 years ago, I was where you are today. So I returned to college to learn the structure & skills needed to create successful interior designs - it worked! Now I'm ready to help you breakthrough the design chaos and clutter and create a framework to succeed. Most design projects start here and may be all you need to end your battle with overwhelm.

How it Works:
Schedule your 15 minute Discovery call via email to see if we're a good fit. Pay the $50 administrative fee below. This pays for the time I spend preparing for your design meeting & gets you on my calendar. Complete the design surveys & homework I send you via email. I don't sell product, I sell my expertise to empower you to be the genius behind your design - Therefore your investment for a single design work session is billed at $200 for the first hour (one hour minimum) and $100 an hour after that. This way you can afford as much or as little as your budget allows. Design work sessions usually last 60 -90 minutes but can last up to three hours depending on the size of your home and your questions. Payment for your session is due at the end of your meeting and can be paid by check or via pay pal. If you live more than 20 miles from my design studio, we can meet via skype or face time, otherwise a transportation fee may apply.
