Consultation



We provide the vision, you make it a reality. If you are motivated and can do basic design projects like painting and furniture assembly, then this is the perfect fit.

We provide your layout and the vision to select the perfect pieces.

No matter where you live, I can assist you in making your dreams a reality. Whether starting with a fresh palette or revamping a few rooms, I will work with you to create your vision.

All E-Designs are 100% customizable to your design need and budget!



Initial Consult

Every project starts with an online consultation by phone calls, texts, Facebook messenger or Skype.  We will get to know one another and we will know what you need from the process. We will then send you a Client Questionnaire. This is where you tell us about yourself, your project needs, existing furniture and your budget.  

Design Plans

When the project is ready to move ahead, we will begin by drawing two "room boards" that reflect your desired outcome through a rendering with the measurements of your space you gave us. Your room will be designed in 3-D and will feature a mood board with a color story, fabric choices and furniture that describes the new room's look and feel. 

Finalized Project

We will put together a finalized digital presentation that is easy to follow! You will receive a 3-D rendering of the room and  links to paint colors, fabric and furniture so you can purchase the exact designs from the room boards. 

E-Design Remote and Virtual Color Consultations: 


Remote consultation services are available for "long distance" clients. We start with an in depth conversation about your project. Then through an exchange of photographs, available samples and floor plans, a color plan will be developed for your room which creates the look, feel and ambiance that fits your lifestyle. This process requires participation by you as we hone in on your final color palette.


  • Provision for paint samples (up to three colors per space).  
  • Provision for paint materials (brushes/sponges, etc.)
  • Ongoing consultation for the duration of the package
  • Establishing a color palette to maximize flow
  • Assistance with color selection
  • Chat via phone, do web sharing & e-meet each other and invite us in your home or space
  • Customized color plan complete with brand name, paint color name and finish (sheen)








Meeting 1:


  • Evaluation and discussion of the spaces being addressed.
  • Make initial color choice selections (up to 3 colors per space).
  • Color samples will be mailed directly to you.


Meeting 2:


  • Initially selected color samples will be applied and left on the wall(s) to be previewed during different times of the day to see how they may be altered by light as well as how they might look in natural light versus by lamps/overhead lighting. This is where you will apply the color(s) and view how they look and what you like. 


Meeting 3:


  • Revisit for final evaluation and final selection of colors (ideally within 72 hours of the initial application you applied).
