A professional designer can come in and take a so so space and with a little or a lot of change-transform your daily life. If you fear the cost, you need to ask the designer to asses your space and give you a definite fee. They should also provide a Design Proposal that specifies the scope of the project, step by step of what the designer will provide you to complete the project, and the exact fee you will pay them for this service. Excellence is not free, be weary of “free” services. Trust me, free design does not mean you have just won the Design Lottery.
Lastly, the client and designer make this legal by signing the contract.
Now it is off to the races. A qualified designer brings you the following:
> A keen assessment of the changes you desire.
> A full service strategy providing you drawings, color palette, photos of furnishings, accessories, and anything that takes you from Drab to Fab.
> A budget and timeline to complete the project. This helps you prioritize what you can buy.
> Then, the designer manages all contractors, ordering of articles and most importantly, the designer keeps you informed of all things transpiring day to day so you know where your project is at all times.
The designer and crew are in your personal and sacred space; it is the designer’s job to make these changes as easy as possible so you can continue functioning as these changes occur, keep the project on track and in the end…give you Pure Magic!!!!!!
