How We Work

Your home is your refuge, during these unsettling times. One reality that remains constant is our continued need to support each other in whatever way we can. A mixture of wisdom, care and creativity is called for to respond to the our world’s changing needs.

Each appointment offers an opportunity to get to know you, your preferences and your lifestyle. Deborah helps you to coordinate your selections with your color scheme and furnishings. Affiliated with over 150 suppliers, resources and manufacturers, and a winner of multiple awards, Deborah finds just the right fit for your aesthetic and functional expectations.

Here is the strategy that I will be adopting during this period of sheltering in place:

Pre- Appointment Planning

The current situation will call for you to do a bit more “homework” to help me meet your home decor needs effectively.

  • Respond to my “Lifestyle Planner” form to gather information either by email or over the phone
  • Take videos of your home, focusing on the areas that are your priorities
  • Share inspiration photos from my portfolio, Houzz, Pinterest or Instagram

Initial Design Consultation

The above allows me to virtually tour your home and understand your personal goals. I will then collaborate with you to develop an action plan. We may identify various stages that suit your changing needs.

  • We will use the information shared previous to the appointment, to zero in on the your preferences, lifestyle and functional needs.
  • We will, then, develop a “wish list” of design elements called for to accomplish your goal.
  • I will offer a ballpark budget estimate for the project, that includes ongoing design consultation, shipping, delivery and installation and we will agree upon a target budget within that range.

Initiating the Design Process

I will require an agreement fee that is 5% of the agreed upon budget (for example, for a target budget of $10,000, there would be a $500 fee). Once, I receive that amount, whether using Square for credit cards or a check by mail, I will begin researching options for design elements to achieve the transformation that you long for. It is likely that I will request to pay a brief, fully sanitized visit, to your home to measure your space, in isolation after Governor Wolf’s stay at home order is no longer in place. After all, it is the details that matter most in accomplishing satisfying design results!

The Design Presentation

Within 10-14 days, we will come together either via Facetime or Zoom meeting or on the phone to design your home. I will offer plans, mood boards, inspiration photos, renderings, images of furnishings, fabrics, finishes to enable you to envision options for your redesigned space, either on the virtual presentation platform or by email just prior to our meeting.

Together through patient collaboration, we will pull your home together.

The Proposal

Once we’ve confirmed the scheme, I will prepare a written quote. This will incorporate the cost of taxes, shipping, delivery, installation. Upon receipt of a 70% down payment, your orders will be placed.

Follow Through and Updates

Over the next few months, I will stay in touch to notify you of the status of your project.

The Big Reveal

Finally, at last, (when the clouds are lifted), me and my delivery and installation team will transform your home, taking every detail into account.

This is the day that you’ve been waiting for when it all comes together! I’ll encourage you to spend a few hours out while my team will be busy making sure that everything is “just so”- down to towels folded and flowers in vases.

Once your fabulous new surroundings are complete, I’ll invite you to return and take in the transformation. We’ll have a final review and the final 30% balance will be due.

My mission and goal is to work with you to make the world more beautiful, one room at a time! I’m committed to making your design experience fulfilling.
