frequently asked questions

Your portfolio of work is very diverse. Where do you find inspiration for each project and how do I know if your “style” is a good fit for our home?

Each home in our interior design portfolio is very different, but so is each client associated to that home. We do not expect one style to fit each client. When designing there are so many factors to take into consideration beyond just what is on trend. Our interior designs are beautiful, but also practical for the people living inside and what their life will hold. I draw the design inspiration from each client and what their dreams are. One of the highest compliments I have received was “this was better than I dreamed it would be”.

Will you help me budget? How do you prioritize items within that budget?

We require a budget prior to the beginning of any interior design project. We have found that usually one person thinks there is a “very firm budget” while another thinks there is “no real set number.” We find it is best for everyone to be on the same page prior to beginning so there are no surprises. While a design project may grow in scope and budget during the course, we are happy to help you with an initial budget. We base this on past interior design projects that are similar in scope and scale. Each client has a different priority in their home. One might choose a custom dining nook to maximize comfortable seating for guests. Another might want the texture an impact of wallpaper in most rooms rather than just the powder room. We take each of these preferences and priorities into consideration and help you budget the home overall rather than by item or room. We see the house as a whole and therefore your budget as a whole too.

How do you communicate with clients?

As previously mentioned, there is a lot of communication in our process. Emails with a paper trail of information are our friend but we are quick to pick up the phone to discuss anything in more detail. If possible, our initial meetings are in person.

You offer “full service” but what does that mean and what can I expect that to look like?

Our team of experienced interior designers in Wilmington, NC offer full service in both design and process. For interior design, this means we are thinking of all the things for you. We are taking into consideration your lifestyle and what fabrics should be used. We are space planning, so it is cozy, yet spacious enough for life. We are thinking about the finish of the kitchen pendants as well as your master bathroom sconces so there is not uniformity but cohesion. We are accessorizing at the install, so you are not left with a to-do list at the end. On the process front, we are recommending reputable contractors, managing timelines, and gathering bids for you. But don’t worry, we don’t hand off these hard-to-read contracts. We help you decipher and make decisions you will be happy with long term. Our interior designers communicate often with both contractors and clients so everyone is on the same page. We are a contractor’s point of contact, so they don’t call you asking what grout color you want. You have trusted us and hired us to be the expert. You have a full life with lots coming at you. We are here to take it off your plate. We strive to make the whole interior design process less of a burden and more of a joy.
