Design Consultations & Planning in Alpharetta, Georgia

We are a full service design firm providing guidance and support from project concept to the completed installation.

Consultations

Our initial consultation fee is $100, with most consultations lasting between one and three hours, depending upon the scope of the project. The consultation takes place in the client’s home, and is the time for the client to communicate what they would like to accomplish in their home. The designer will listen, question and take notes in order to create the dialogue that is an important factor in understanding the ideas the client has in mind for their home. The designer will ask about your color preferences, fabric, furniture taste and accessories and discuss your current furnishings and how best to utilize them. Measurements and photos may be taken at this time. During this initial visit, the designer and client will discuss specific priorities, time frames and budget. Then the designer will move on to the planning process.

The Planning Process

The designer begins to develop a plan suited to meet the client’s expectations and goals. Fabric selection, finishes, furniture samples and color are gathered and incorporated into the prepared placement and floor plan. At this time, the client is brought back into the process to review the designer’s selections. This is the time to discuss possible changes and adjustments to the overall plan in order to ensure that the client’s expectations are being addressed.


The Ordering Process

When the client agrees upon the plan, a 50% non-refundable payment of the contract initiates the ordering process. Prior to delivery/installation, the remaining balance from the approved “Contract” invoices and the balance on any authorized changes are due. The designer notifies the client of this amount in advance, so these amounts can be reconciled. The client submits the payment to their designer at least one week before their installation day.

Installation

Additional items that may be needed to “complete” the look of the finished areas are placed in the home during the installation and a detailed list of these items is provided to the client on the day of the Install. These invoices are called “Install” invoices and are often equal to half of the value of the client’s “Contract” invoices. However, this amount is relative to many factors, including the amount of appropriate furniture and accessories already in the client’s possession. The client is not obligated to purchase any of the “Install” items. The client has two calendar days to review these items and notify the designer of those items they wish to purchase. Payment of these items is due within seven calendar days.
