FAQs

ARE INTERIOR DECORATORS THE SAME AS INTERIOR DESIGNERS?

Interior Decorators, like designers, create floor plans, pick furnishings and fixtures, schedule and manage their own businesses ​and projects. They have their work displayed in publications like magazines or TV. However, to keep it brief, decorators cannot ​design spaces architecturally – they work within the physical existing space and its elements. They decorate and furnish the ​space to create a specific aesthetic or style requested by their clients. -Decorators and Designers Association of Canada

DO YOU WORK WITH A SPECIFIC CONTRACTOR OR TRADESPEOPLE?

I do not work with an exclusive contractor. If you already have one you want to work with, great! If not, I have a selection of ​some very talented tradesmen and women that I’ll be happy to recommend! Putting together a solid team upfront is key in the ​success of a project.

HOW MANY DESIGN OPTIONS WILL BE PRESENTED?

There will be one comprehensive concept per project to maintain a cohesive vision. This can be revised during the Concept ​Development and Design Finalization stages.

WHAT IF I’M NOT HAPPY WITH THE DESIGN?

As much as I work closely with the clients, I am human too and capable of taking a swing and a miss! As soon as you spot ​something not to your liking - please let me know immediately. I always allow for revision time and will never move a design ​forward without your say-so. This ensures that you are happy with the end result.

IS IT GOING TO BE EXPENSIVE?

Decorating a space can be expensive, depending on how big your space is, the amount of cosmetic work to be done, and the ​kinds of furnishings you’d like to get. I work within your budget and will give you purchase options so you can choose ​which one is best for you and your budget.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO SHOP WITH YOU IN-STORE?

Absolutely! I charge by the hour for in-store shopping + transportation fee. I would love to see what kind of style you ​gravitate towards. I especially encourage in-store shopping with me for artworks, antiques, for testing out comfort levels of ​sofas and mattresses, and the occassional HomeSense run.

HOW DOES YOUR PRICING WORK?

Pricing depends on the kind of service - some of my services are billed hourly, some are charged a flat fee, and others a ​percentage of the project.

DO YOU PASS YOUR TRADE PRICING TO YOUR CLIENTS?

No, I don’t extend Trade-only Pricing to my clients, so I can keep my design fees low. Interior Decorating, much like any ​other business, needs to generate profit. If your Interior Designer or Decorator is able to pass on their Trade-only ​Pricing to you, that means they’re charging you more through their hourly rate, design fees, or an additional fee for ​procurement.
