Virtual Consultations

What's the difference between an intake call and a virtual consultation?


An intake call provides you with the recommended design service that's best based on your needs and the scope of your project. Unlike a virtual consultation, it does not include recommendations or advice on improving your space and layout, unless you move forward with design work.

General

Do you take out of state clients?


Yes! In fact, many of my clients are not from Boston! There's a lot that can be done virtually, please don't hesitate to reach out.




What's a mood board?


As the foundation for all design projects, a mood board is a digital design that provides you with direction for style, colors, finishes, and any other ideas to help you visualize the concept for your space. Keep it handy whenever you’re out shopping for your home and use it as a guide to help you stay on track!




Can you shop for me?


We offer shopping as an option only to our local clients. For virtual clients, we provide recommendations to facilitate the shopping process, such as measurements, or even inspiration photos to help you find what you're looking for.




What's a 3D rendering?


A 3D rendering allows for careful planning of both layout and concept of your space. Taking both scale and proportion into account, you’ll be able to see how your space will look completely furnished and styled. You’ll be given a complete list of measurements to then purchase your furniture, as well as exact placement for each piece.
