On a budget? Like your stuff, but not sure how to set it up? Re-design is probably one of my favourite things to do as a designer. It is basically taking what already exists in your home, office, or other space and re-arranging it, styling it. It is amazing how some quick changes such as re-arranging furnishings, editing, putting up art, and re-arranging accessories can have a huge impact on a space!
Process for Re-design
Initial Contact (>15mins)
We always begin with a brief initial consultation to determine the client’s needs and what they are looking for. Maybe they’ve never worked with a designer before and need some clarification. This generally happens in a phone or email conversation.
Consultation/Re-design Appointment (1-4 hrs)
Gather Information: The next step is to make an appointment where I will come out to the client’s home for a consultation. Our discussion will be centred around 7 key elements: Lifestyle, needs, wish list, function, budget, space and timeline. It is important for me to get an understanding of the feel and look the client’s want in their home. When I make suggestions and come up with designs, I want it to reflect my client’s tastes, but also to ensure that their space suits their lifestyle and the way they function in their home.
Recommend/Design/Decorate/Execute: This is where we walk through the home and I will make recommendations as to what we can do to transform the space. Typically with re-design I get right in there and start changing up what the client has! Move existing furniture and/or accessories around to re-design the space. If the client is wanting new items I will make specific recommendations for paint, furnishings, art and accessories. *Depending on the size of the space and the amount of furnishings a second appointment may be necessary.
I am available to help with a complete design package for you from start to finish. I can work with you on your space as much or as little as needed – it all depends on you!
