Designer for a Day

We created our Designer for a Day service for our design loving, DIY enthusiast clients, who crave expert guidance and want to execute their interior design projects independently. It is power-packed with insights, making it perfect for projects that don’t quite fit the full service model but need more help than a two-hour strategy session.

With your budget and timeline in mind, we offer expert advice on how to reimagine or create your new space. Our designers will provide design expertise, practical guidance on budget, contractors, vendors, and actionable steps to make your design vision a reality.

Scheduling Options

Option 1

Two three-hour half-day sessions on consecutive mornings. This option allows for both us and you to process and gather information in between our two meeting times. Breaking the day up is also perfect for clients who may not be able to commit to a full day due to parenting or work requirements.

Option 2

One full, six-hour day (a three hour morning session and a three hour afternoon with an independent break for lunch midday). This option can work well for clients driving in from out of town or who want to devote a full day to making a big push on their project.
