In most cases I prefer to just charge an up-front design fee based on the scope of the project. We discuss this before I start. Occasionally I will do an hourly fee, if that makes more sense for the type of work that I will be doing for you. Sometimes it makes sense to break your project down into phases if you want initial help with pre-construction decisions.
Here are just a few of the things I can do for you:
- Create an overall concept and “vision”
- Space planning
- Color specification
- Window treatments – I love to design them!
- Art and accessories – so important!
- Kitchen & Bath improvements
- Collaborate with architects and builders
Most of my work has been in the Philadelphia suburban area, but I have done some projects at the Jersey shore, Chesapeake, Florida and North Carolina. My rooms have been featured in Traditional Home, House Beautiful, and Main Line Today magazines. Over the years I have also participated in many local designer show houses. In 2012 I decorated two rooms in the Bucks County Designer Show House.
I have been a guest lecturer on the subject of historically based archive fabrics.
