This allows me the opportunity to utilize my style and expertise for design projects in your home, no matter where you live, at a more affordable rate.
It starts with you filling out the design questionnaire telling me all about you and your space.
Once I’ve reviewed your questionnaire, I will contact you by email and will send you a paypal invoice.
From there the fun begins! I will share a folder I’ve created for your project with inspirational shots and products. You will give me feedback by commenting on them letting me know what you love/hate.
When I am sure of the design direction that you want to take, I will email you a design board with instructions for implementing the plan, as well as a detailed shopping list from both my own suppliers and online sources.

To Measure Walls (Painting or Decorating)
- Measure the total distance (perimeter) around the room: (10 ft. + 15 ft.) x 2 = 50 ft.
- Multiply the perimeter by the ceiling height to get the total wall area: 50 ft. x 8 ft. = 400 sq. ft.
- Doors are usually 21 square feet (if there are two): 21 sq. ft. x 2 = 42 sq. ft.
- Windows average 15 square feet (if there are two): 15 sq. ft. x 2 = 30 sq. ft.
- Take the total wall area and subtract the area for the doors and windows to get the wall surface to be painted or decorated: 400 sq. ft. (wall area)– 42 sq. ft. (doors) – 30 sq. ft. (windows) 328 sq. ft.
As a rule of thumb, one gallon of quality paint will usually cover 400 square feet. One quart will cover 100 square feet. Because you need to cover 328 square feet in this example, one gallon will be adequate to give one coat of paint to the walls. (Coverage will be affected by the porosity and texture of the surface. In addition, bright colors may require a minimum of two coats.)
