DIY Design

DIY design is perfect for those who want to take on a design project on their own but need some support and guidance with creating a plan so that time and money are not wasted. You will be provided with a design plan so that you’ll be able to create a space that’s not only lovely, but also cohesive…and you’ll be able to do it on your own and at your own pace. 

How do I know that DIY design is right for my needs?

  • I've been working on a project for a while and I’m getting frustrated. I want my space done so I can enjoy it but I don’t know how to get it there.

  • Design is not one of my gifts, but I am good at following directions.  I’m handy so I can execute a design plan if given one. 

  • I need new furniture, but I’m not certain about what my style is or how to determine if the furniture pieces I choose will be to scale.

  • While I’m 80-90% finished with my space and have the major elements, I’m in need of some assistance with pulling things together, adding accessories, etc.

  • I’m knee-deep into a project but I’m getting cold feet on whether or not I’m going in the right direction.  I want a new space but I don’t want to waste my money. 

  • I think I want to build something myself and I would like a professional opinion on it before I start the project.

  • Decision-making is not something I excel in.  I would love for a design professional to just tell me what I need to buy. 

  • I can be wishy-washy and I don’t want to waste any money because of it; getting a plan from a professional will help me get my project completed faster without wasting money so that I can enjoy my space sooner rather than later.

  • Once I know the style of the pieces that I need for my space, I will have the time to shop and source for items on my own.

DIY Design Process:

  1. Due to the nature of this particular design service, it’s extremely important that all decision-makers that will be involved in the project are in attendance during the initial design consultation.  After we’ve completed the discovery call and the design consultation and you’re ready to move forward with DIY design for your project, I will schedule a time to go over the design contract with you, measure your space (or request measurements from you) and take any photos needed (if applicable).  Once the design contract has been executed and 100% of the design fee has been received, you are officially on my list!

  2. I will create a design plan based on what I have learned from you about the project, as well as my own creative ideas. This typically takes 4-5 weeks from the execution of the design contract, although it may take longer depending on the size of the project. 

  3. Once I have completed your DIY design plan for you, I will send you an email letting you know it is complete and I will either include the plan at that time or mail the detailed DIY design plan to you (if applicable).  Your design plan will include as many details as possible so that you’ll be able to put together a beautiful, cohesive space on your own by purchasing, installing, managing and styling the space yourself.

  4. Because sometimes questions do come up, you will be able to follow-up with me through one email to address any questions you may have about your DIY design plan after your design has been presented to you. I will also make one revision to the floorplan if you want to see something in a different layout (if applicable).
