Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  How do your services differ from those offered by well-known area furniture stores?

A:  Although furniture stores can provide valuable information, they are not full-service design sources and are often unable to offer advice on important items like window treatments, surface selection, and lighting. Also, furniture stores are limited to choosing from only the merchandise that they carry, dramatically restricting potential choices.

Q:  I plan on building/remodeling a house, but will not be able to furnish or accessorize immediately. Should I still involve an interior designer in the building process?

A:  Absolutely. There are many decisions that will have to be made during the building process that affect the functionality, comfort level, and look of your home for many years to come. Decisions regarding flooring, countertops, cabinetry, lighting, and many other smaller details should be well thought out and consistent with the intended style and design of your home. These permanent fixtures are a considerable portion of your home's cost. Making the right choices from the start will prevent you from wanting to make expensive changes in the near future.

Q:  How should I choose a designer?

A:  A good place to start would be to ensure that the designer is a member of ASID, which indicates an education in interior design and a commitment to professional standards. Beyond that, a designer should be willing to meet with you to discuss your project and expectations, and explain their business practices. Finally, a designer should be able to show you multiple pictures of their work. It is a cliche, but a picture truly is worth a thousand words.

Q:  As a designer, does your work typically embrace one style?

A:  Good design transcends any particular style. It is the designer's job to work towards the client's needs and preferences.
