HOME~DECOR CONSULTING

I don’t move walls…

but I can help you attain the look you want for your home, one room at a time.

I offer an option that makes home-decor doable, but at the client’s own pace, as budget and timetable allow. I provide the vision, based on an initial, in-house consultation and together we determine the potential results based on the input of client needs & preferences relating to palette and styles. During the in-house consultation, I will take photos of the existing room(s) to use as detailed references while I work to complete the project.  

This is 1-2 hour consultation, payable at the time of visit (see fees below).

Completed Project Includes…

The completed project will include professionally printed ‘inspiration’ pictures of rooms and accessories that illustrate my vision, based on our conversation.  My detailed notes allow the client to execute all or parts of this vision.  If my notes are used as a guide line, the desired result can be achieved. It will also include a list of suggested resources, trades people and samples, where applicable – all presented in an indexed binder for easy and accessible referencing.

If additional photos or other details come to my attention that I feel would enhance the current project, they are forwarded via e-mail in a PDF file that can be printed (by client) and added to the binder.  

Additional rooms that are not included in the original project are subject to the fees listed below.

Package Fees.. 

  • Consultation (1-2 hours) $150

PASTELS

Beyond The “Pink”

pretty-pastel-style-book-selina-lake

One of the hot, decor trends this spring is PASTELS  but not the ‘old’ PASTELS we’re so familiar with.  Newer versions are more saturated and perhaps more importantly, they’re being used in combination with each other in ways we’ve not done before – or even thought we could – or should.

What I’m referring to harkens back to the day of never putting blue and green together or pink and yellow and OMG, certainly not orange!  All of which fell into the same category as not wearing white after Labour Day or to a wedding – there are still rules about these things, but today you can do some version of them without being ostracized.

One of the newest books I found on the subject (which is on it’s way to my door step as I write this) is ‘Pretty Pastel Style.’  I love incorporating a hit or two of PASTEL into a white room.  And, I also paint furniture for re-sale in my booth (Simply Beach), in PASTEL shades as well as basic black, gray and white.

I’ve included some ‘inspiration’ photos of rooms, table tops and even food .. and while you’re here, take a look at the pic update of my booth… Enjoy!
