This is a short session service that addresses an interior design situation or products. We are here to help you with solutions so you can continue with your DIY project.

It can be an information gathering session where you are free to brain picking by phone or video conferencing.

It also maybe a good service for folks in a tighter budget not ready to hire a designer for a full- service package.  You just want DIY guidance on an area of a project and need to speak with a pro Interior Designer on your specific problem.

This Session includes

  • Call, text or email for an appointment (during-predetermined work schedule)
  • Conversational style info gathering on a specific design problem or lack of agreement on the parties involved to work out a course of action.
  • Face to face or by call, text or video consultation
  • Follow up links, sourcing, photo and directions on-line and organized by project with easy communication.

What Others Have Said

How was your experience?

I had recently moved into a new apartment and wanted to “rethink” my decor, theme, color palette and office. Shelley and I had some initial meetings where she took measurements and pictures of the place. She then drafted some sketches, along with decor and color palette of what the office could be.

She took her time to find out who I was and what I was looking for.

I then went to work acquiring what I needed and built my office. I’m a [film] editor, I wanted a floating stand-up desk.

I’m very happy with the end-result.  It looks great, and fits with the rest of the apartment. And the theme fits with my tastes.
