Are you ready to create your own unique design for a beautiful space? Do you want a home or office you can be proud of? In a 2-hour interior design consultation, Sarah can help you get there. Read on for tips on how to make your consultation a huge success.
- BE PREPARED – I come to a consultation ready with a paint deck, paper, marker set, ruler, tape measure and iPad. I’ll be ready to show you examples of furniture, window treatments and more – online and on the spot – to aid in our discussion. You can maximize your time with me by having a list of questions and images and measurements of the furniture pieces you want to incorporate if they are not already in the room. The more you prepare, the more you’ll get out of our time together!
- PICK ONE AREA OF FOCUS – While I often walk through the entire house during a consultation to give general tips on window treatments, light fixtures, paint colors etc. I like to focus on one primary area and build a solid plan. For me, this means that we work out the furniture layout, window treatments, paint colors, lighting fixtures, potential art and accessory placement for one room, top to bottom.
- MAXIMIZE YOUR TIME – I book a minimum 2 hour consultation that I will sometimes break up between your home and my office if I feel it will serve you best. For example, if there is a perfect wallpaper or tile selection that I have in my office library, or if I think a more detailed drawing of an area will be beneficial for you in achieving your design goals, then I’ll allocate some time in my office and send you notes after the fact. While I am in your home, you can maximize your time by being prepared (see point 2) and putting your phone on silent. If need be, schedule a babysitter so you can have your hands free. Be sure to book your consult when you know your home will be relatively quiet and without distraction so that you can focus on all the great things we’re going to talk about to make your home spectacular.
- BE OPEN MINDED – The best design consultations are a meeting of the minds, a collaborative partnership working to design the unique design to create your beautiful space. I may share some ideas with you that you’ve never considered, and I will most certainly help you edit your ideas into a more cohesive whole. Be open to the possibilities – they are probably far greater than you’ve even imagined!
