Have some questions? Check out some of the FAQs below:
What if I don’t know what my design style is? That’s okay because I’ll help you figure it out. When I come over or during our online meeting (depending on which service you selected), I’ll get to know you and your room and that’s how I’ll get all of the juicy info that I need to figure out your design style and select the perfect pieces for your room (within budget). This is the time to let it all hang out, so give it to me straight. I want to know all about your likes and dislikes.
What if I don’t like something you select? In about a week from your consultation, I will send you a preview of your design so that you can review and let me know if I’m heading in the right direction. This will be your chance to let me know if you’re not feeling something about the design. So don’t be shy. This is your room and you will be spending time in it so please let me know if something needs changing during this time. If a specific item on your shopping list is discontinued or out of stock within 30 days after you receive your e-design, I’ll re-select a similar item at no cost to you.
Are you willing to work with pieces I already have? Absolutely! In fact, I encourage you to try to use as many items that you own as possible. If you adore it, why throw it out. I’ll try my best to work as many of your pieces into my design plan.
Will the pieces that you select for me be affordable? Hell yeah! After all I believe that everyone is entitled to have a room that they love without filing for bankruptcy. During our consultation, we’ll go over your budget so that I’m crystal clear on what home decor items you can afford.
When can I expect to receive my design plan? If you paid in full, you will receive your design plan within one to two weeks of your consultation (depending on which service you purchased). If you chose a payment plan, your design plan will be provided to you once you have made your payment in full.
Can I get help with more than one room?
Of course! I even provide you with a 10% discount when you purchase a service for more than one room. If this is something that you are interested in, reach out to me over here.
Who are your ideal clients exactly?
My ideal clients are action-taker DIYers who don’t turn up their noses at rolling up their sleeves and jumping into the design process. They are ready to get going now and finally create the room of their dreams. They also love interior design, but just can’t seem to get all of those million design ideas out of their head and into their room. They are looking for some guidance with piecing together the design puzzle and are looking for simple and easy decorating help.
What distinguishes you as an Interior Decorator?
I believe with every being in my heart that your space says a lot about you and what you have going on at the moment. I also believe that having a space that makes you smile and feel at peace is self care.Oftentimes, we connect self care to manis and pedis or retail therapy, but forget that our environment including how it makes us feel is also self care. How? Because it contributes to the state of our well being aka our mental health. Is home decor a cure for mental health? Absolutely not, but it does help to keep it in check, at least for me, along with other things like therapy, journaling, crystal healing, meditation, prayer, yoga and other things that help to keep me balanced.
Everyone deserves to live in a room of their dreams even if their budget is small. My passion is helping those that usually don’t think that have access to design services aka minorities and the not so rich. Your room should be a reflection of you, which is why I don’t create cookie cutter designs because there’s only one you in this world. I create amazing designs (yes, I brag about myself because I pour my heart in soul into my designs) from my laptop that reflect my client’s style and personality.
A bit about me…
Now when I’m not creating magic on my laptop designing rooms, you can probably find me… hell no! Who am I kidding? You will find me stuffing my face, or chasing after one of my four kids (really the 3 little ones – my oldest, who’s 22 isn’t into playing with me anymore)or just chillin’ with my husband.
Although I’m shit scared of heights, I love all thrill seeking things. I hope to one day get over my fear by bungee jumping, skydiving and zip lining (maybe all in one day!). The closest I’ve gotten is that time I went cliff diving in DR. I would’ve done it when I went to Jamaica, but I already changed out of my bathing suit, but I’m slowly getting there.
Call me crazy, but I’m a dare devil at heart. I’m hoping to one day talk my husband into coming along with me, but he hates all things thrill seeking (to this day, he only rides the kiddy roller coaster rides with the youngest kids whenever we hit the amusement parks while me and the older kids look on from the side lines and dying of laughter! lol).
Anyway, I’m super passionate about Interior Decorating because I realized the hard way that our environment affects our well being aka mental health (learn more about me here).
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
I created my decorating services for action taker DIYers who are absolutely excited and can’t wait to transform their room from ugly to a dope room that they love. They are ready to get started now and are open to new ideas and are willing to trust me with their room because I’ve got their back! So let loose because this is going to be fun!
What is the difference between your decorating services and a traditional onsite decorating service?
All of my services are hands on decorating services for those that are okay with being involved in the process. You will be expected to roll up your sleeves, follow detailed instructions and of course be ready to create your dream room! This is how you save money.
With an onsite Interior Decorator, they do ALL of the work. They do everything that I do plus put the design plan together for you so there’s no work on your part at all. They will also handle order placements, schedule the delivery of orders, and coordinate installations with subcontractors, which is all good, but means more money out of your pocket girl. If you’re okay with that, then you should stop reading now and click on over to another site.
With my services, depending on the service you purchase, I take measurements/pics of your room, source the items for you and provide you with a design plan and 3D view of your room so that you can have a peek into your future room. All you need to do is follow the instructions on my design plan including purchasing the items that I source of you through the clickable shopping list that I provide you with. It’ll be like a road map and all you have to do is follow it. Easy and more affordable for you!
With my decorating services, we work together to create your dream room, which equals a hell of a lot of savings for you!
Do you work with people outside of the NYC area?
Yes I do, but I only work with clients in the United States. My services are also virtual so there’s no need for me to step foot into your room to design it for you.
If you’re outside of NYC or northern NJ, we’ll just have to connect online through an online meeting where I will walk you through how to measure, take pics and draw out your room. Don’t panic, this isn’t as hard as it may sound and no you don’t have to be an artist to draw out your room. I’ll show you how to draw out a simple sketch of your room (nothing complicated).
OK, I’m ready to do this, but I have a couple of questions. Can I contact you?
Of course, just send your questions on over here. I’ll be happy to answer your questions.
I can’t wait to help you create a room that you love and I am excited to be the one to help you.
Let’s get going!
What is your refund policy?
A lot of love and time goes into creating my designs. With all that said, all services are non-refundable.
That’s why it’s super important that you let it all hang out when we meet for your home consultation. Don’t hold anything back since that’s how I’ll get all of the 411 needed to put your room design together. It’s how I get to know you/your style & personality. If a specific item on the shopping list is discontinued or out of stock within 30 days after you receive your e-design I’ll reselect an item at no cost to you.
You also get 30 days of unlimited email support so that I can answer any questions you may have about your design.
When you purchase any of my services, you agree to my refund policy including my terms of service.
Can I review your terms?
But of course you can! Check them out here.
