Need A Few Hours Of Design Advice? Our 3.5 Hour Design Consult May Be Just What You Need………

Tags: , , , ,

Since the new year, a few people have reached out to me about the one time 3.5 hour consult I offer.

 

While my firm works mostly on full room or turn-key projects, this one time service is for the client who needs direction and help making decisions, but likes to take that information and do the legwork themselves.

 

It has gone over really well, and I have even flown across the country a few times to offer this service.

 

People who have invested in this consult have been surprised over the amount of detail and information that comes with it.

 

I saw a lady last weekend at my daughter’s dance studio who hired me several months ago to help her with the finishes, colors, materials, furniture layout, etc for a family lakehouse under construction.

 

I couldn’t help but smile as she proudly showed me pictures of the finished product.  They don’t have furniture yet, but the house turned out so pretty.  She did a great job implementing my suggestions.

Whatever your needs are with your home, you have my undivided attention during our time together.

Here’s how the 3.5 hour consult works:

 

You send a list to me of all you would like to discuss and accomplish during our time together.    During our appointment, I will then spend 3.5 hours of  uninterrupted time giving you my opinion and answering any question you can possible think to ask me.  We can discuss design dilemmas, furniture arrangements, fabric swatches, paint colors, to knock down a wall or not– you name it!

 

The more legwork you do before our meeting, the more productive our time will be together.   We will make a Pinterest board with specifics of what to look for when shopping for your home, and I will take detailed measurements so you won’t have to worry about coming home with the wrong size sofa, ever again.

 

After our meeting, you will receive detailed notes of what we discussed.   This allows you to maximize your time with me while I take notes and write down all the specifics for you to implement at a later date.

 

This service is a great way to invest in your home by making sure what you are changing and buying is right for the space.  It also allows you the freedom to work on your project as your time and budget allows, all while following professional advice.

 

If you think this service can help you transform your home, email us at info@danawolterinteriors.com.   I would love to talk with you.

 

Have a great day-

Transformation Of A Living Room

Tags: , , , ,

We have been working on a beautiful house in Mountain Brook, AL, that we blogged about here  and are installing the Living Room after the first of the year.

 

I thought I would give a little insight into the transformation that is going to take place with this space.  It is going to be pretty and chic and filled with a mix of velvets, wools, leathers, linens, and silks.   Charcoal gray, tan, cream and blush colors will be mixed in with iron, mixed metals, and different wood finishes.

We are mixing furnishings from two homes, and while the room was a blank canvas and several new pieces have been ordered, we have tried to incorporate as many of their existing things as we possible could.  It’s going to be a good blend of new pieces and antiques.

Because of the size of this room, I want the space to feel like it has been collected over time.  Pieces that will blend but nothing that feels too matched or contrived.  While it will have more of a dressy feel than some of other parts of the house, I am big on designing this space so this large family will USE it.  The room is going to be too pretty and take up too much space in the house for people to walk past it.  A large sofa in the main seating area and a second seating area with two custom loveseats will provide comfortable seating for many.

 

 

The room has recently been painted from the pictures above and the rug is now installed.  It already feels better with a few coats of paint and a floor covering that fits the space.   Stay tuned as we install the furnishings and accessories in 2017.
