research & recommendations
Need help to find the perfect finishing touch, or want to update an entire room? Hate shopping? Don't have time? I can help.
And it's easy – fill out a short questionnaire, let me know your purchasing budget, and I'll get to work. And, if you want the look, but not the original designer price tag, where possible, I'll find a suitable knock-off.
In the end, you'll get a PDF Mood Board (see photo) of what I've found (including where it's from and the price), and then you purchase what you want, when you want.
My hourly fee is $200/hour (minimum 2 hours, billed quarter hours thereafter). Work completed under separate contract.
