What can we accomplish during our time together? Are we together for the full 8 hours?
We can spend the day with you, sourcing from the various local Boone and Blowing Rock area suppliers and retailers to make the most efficient use of our time together. And if we are not able to find what you need locally, we can suggest trusted retailers which would allow you to order what you are looking for.
Alternatively, and what we find to be the most productive, is for us to initially source items on our own for 2 – 3 hours. Then, we meet with you, either that same day, or within that week, at local showrooms or retailers to present our selections.
This way, we are able to maximize our time by showing you only the very best selections based on our discussions about your style and budget from the initial design consultation questionnaire. Plus, if there is anything we need to alter, we can easily do so right there in the showrooms. It is a real time saver that often allows us the opportunity to head to another showroom if needed. Or, you can take the samples back on site to view them in your space.
What are your terms for payment? May we hire you for more than one day if needed?
The fee for the 'Designer for a Day' 8 hour Package is $1,697./85 (Inclusive of all fees). We require 100% payment up-front through our online system, which will then allow you to confirm your booking in our schedule. Our site is secured, and all transactions are handled through a secured third party vendor. We never see or retain your credit card information.
While we always strive to be the most efficient with our time; depending on the size of your project, your specific needs and how swift you are at making decisions; should we not be able to finish your project in the alloted time, you may wish to hire our services for another day. That is no problem!
We can definitely book and plan the agenda for a second (or 3rd, 4th…) day, or another consultation meeting to ensure you feel confident in all the decisions you need to make in the renovating or decorating process. Depending on the time required, we can offer 2, 3 or 4 hour packages at $175/hour. Or, should you wish to retain our services to work as your Project Design Consultant, handling all facets of the design process, we will each sign a new contract outlining these design services. There is generally not a need for another initial meeting, unless we are looking at a completely different project. Of course, this is dependent on the factors already listed above.
We are excited! How do we get started?
