Whatever the size and scope of your design project, this is where all projects begin.

This is a real roll-up-your-sleeves work session. You’ll have solutions, gain clarity, learn about resources, and finish up with an action plan to lead you towards your design goals. This may be all you need, or it may be our first step together.

If your project is larger, we’ll use this time to dig deep into identifying and sorting out your design goals and how they relate to your home, design tastes, budget, expectations, and lifestyle. Then we'll discuss a full design service contract. A full service collaboration gives you access to my trades-only resources for product and services and, most importantly, my expertise to lead your project each step of the way to successful and satisfying completion!

Before this session, we'll need to get acquainted through a Discovery Call which you can schedule through the link. You'll find a Design Questionnaire for you to complete and I'll have reviewed it before our Design Work Session, so we can jump right into the details.

During our 2.5 Design Work Session:

  • We'll discuss your design goals
  • I'll share solutions for your needs, such as layouts, finishes, lighting, furnishings, window treatments, and colour selections,
  • I'll also share resources where you can find what you need to bring your project to life
  • You'll be able to record everything on your Action Plan, during our session, so that you can follow through at your own pace
  • my goal is to help you align your style and vision with your lifestyle needs and your space's limitations and strengths

Should you need further design direction after our session, we can continue to collaborate on an hourly basis through our Designer on Call service. Click the link for details.

If your design goals are larger than we can cover during our design work session, you'll also find a Scope of Work/Design Agreement with a firm Quote, detailing proposed design services and actions to help you achieve your vision.

Client testimonial "Never having worked with an interior decorator before, we had no idea what to expect. You provided more than we ever could have anticipated, and we’re so pleased with the results! Deborah, working with you has been such a pleasure. We had a very general idea of what we wanted but had absolutely no idea of the first steps to make that vision come to life. Luckily for us, we found you!" - Michelle and Ken Rerrie
