THE DESIGN PROCESS (Part 1)
I begin with a minimum 2-hour consultation to determine your lifestyle, personal aesthetic and objectives for your project.
I charge a nominal initial consultation rate of $295.00. During this first meeting we will discuss the scope of work, address timelines as well as review ideas that appeal to you.
An in-home visit is needed to develop a solid plan as well as design direction and to gather inventory of your existing furnishings, artwork and treasured keepsakes that will be incorporated into the new design.
This is a mutual interview process to get to know one another to determine if we are a good fit, as well as to see your space.
Measurements and photographs of the space(s) are taken at this time.
What Happens After Our First Meeting?
If we decide to move the project along together, I will draft a design agreement for you generally within 48 hours of our initial consultation.
Based on the initial meeting, a Design Agreement will be presented for approval. This is a signed agreement between you and Di Barker Interiors that outlines the scope of the project and the fee for interior design services.
You will enjoy significant discounts through access to "to-the-trade" only resources and showrooms, with pricing at below retail costs.
Once you return the design agreement with your deposit, the process is full steam ahead. Deposits are determined by each project, based on the total estimated scope and are applied to the final design invoice.
"MY BUSINESS IS BUILT ON SOLID REFERRALS AND THE INTENSE ALLEGIANCE I HAVE EXPERIENCED FROM EXISTING CLIENTS WHO HAVE SINCE PURCHASED VACATION, INVESTMENT OR NEW HOMES, AND WHO HAVE ENTRUSTED ME TO WORK WITH THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IS TESTIMONY TO THE SOUND RELATIONSHIPS I HAVE SUSTAINED OVER THE YEARS.
