Renovated living room

Need advice? Sometimes immediate, concrete answers are best. That’s why we developed a results-oriented consultation where we come to you––either virtually or IRL––to solve a specific set of problems together on site. We tour the space, you talk about and show us the problems and questions you have, and we resolve them in real time. We can provide solid guidance to do-it-yourselfers on a budget, map out a plan for an entire professional gut renovation, or tackle anything in between. These appointments are intense and interactive...and a lot of fun!


Issues range from spec’ing fixtures/equipment to color consultation to outlining construction opportunities and estimating prices. For other appointments we might devise an impromptu furniture plan—and direct a quick rearrangement. Standard consultations are $600 (+ travel, if not virtual), last 90 minutes, and offer:

  • Dedicated meeting with professional designer—either in person or via video (can be your current home or even a prospective one);

  • Direction in targeting and/or resolving issues in layout, circulation, storage/organization, aesthetics, etc.;

  • Answers to financial questions such as budgeting for purchases or construction, resale preparation, and assessing ROI.

  • Advice on finding or working with contractors, plumbers, electricians, or cabinetmakers; scheduling; and other renovation planning.

  • Use of reference materials from our design library, such as cabinetry samples or color decks;

  • Assessment of your prospective project if you would like to be considered as a new client.

“Great help, thank you. You earned the consultation fee in the first 15 minutes!” – Larry S., West Village
