Q: What do I need to know about your initial consultations? Is there a fee?
A: Our initial interview is free. The consultation service is available by the hour and is scheduled by appointment. Sandra will come to your home or business to determine your objectives for the space.

During the inital consultation is a perfect time to present any photos collected from magazines or ideas from the Internet. Pictures are worth thousand words and this will give Sandra a starting point in determining your style, theme, and color. Sandra will then prepare an outline of recommendations based upon what was discussed during the consultation. This gives room for any changes and additions before commencement on any project.

Q: How long should an interior decorating or staging project take?
A: Every project is different and it depends on several factors such as: Is there custom furniture or exotic materials ordered? Is there any construction involved? How many trade firms will be needed and how long will each firm take to complete their task? The more complex the design project, the longer the timeline.

Q: Can I mix styles?
A: Yes, some of the most beautiful homes that you see in magazines combine different design styles. This can be a tricky and overwhelming technique. Sandra has a knack of combining different styles to make the rooms look stunning. Mixing different styles together can add depth and dimension to the room and make the space look shabby chic.

Q: What is "Green" design?
A: Green design is growing in popularity and is a smart way of doing business. Sandra can help you make decisions that will impact and preserve our environment. Although, Sandra is not LEED certified yet, she takes advantage of practicing “green design” whenever possible.
