With Full Service Design, all purchasing and execution goes through me.
Your purchase of interior design items (i.e. furniture, fabrics, art, accessories and other design materials) through me will serve as payment for my services during the Purchasing and Execution Phase. I charge commercially reasonable “Retail” prices minus a 15% designer discount passed on to you. If non-trade items are used in the design, I charge a 20% purchase management fee on those items.
I have developed and refined my process over the last 18 years and am not willing to deviate from it. I offer only a few excellent options in design presentations, as I find that endless options yield a very “vanilla” design, rather than the layered, thoughtful, and detailed designs I am known for. My true value is in putting together the mix.
In addition, full service interior design features to-the-trade pieces purchased through Just the Thing. Although it may seem like it’s okay to swap out a few items for less expensive options, that isn’t how full-service interior design works. Our agreement is that we set an investment estimate together, then furnishings are purchased through Just the Thing. This is the business model that I have to stick to function as a business.
If you would still like to manage the process after the design, please consider my Virtual Design Package.
