FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW CAN YOU DESIGN IF YOU ARE NOT IN MY AREA?
While virtual design has grown recently, I have honed my virtual design skills and processes since 2015.
Generally, once photos and measurements are taken, rarely is there a need to visit a client home.
In many ways, virtual is superior to in-person for these reasons: pre-design full discussion of your needs, fun, on-line design quiz, 24/7 very visual-oriented communication on a secure platform, secure pay on same platform, expert 3d renderings, shoppable, visual products.
From client Christy B: Clare's vision and ability to "step into my house" through e-design was amazing.
From client, Loretta H: Clare is terrific to work with! While I was hesitant how the remote design process would unfold, I found Clare to be thoughtful, exacting and diligent.
I you do live in the Springfield, MO area, I am happy to visit your home for a pre-design discussion or to take photos or measurements.
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHER INTERIOR DESIGNERS?
My designs are contemporary, yet timeless. The process is very collaborative, engaging with you each step of the way.
With each client, my goal is your 100% satisfaction. Client-service is my top priority. I will work relentlessly to ensure your space is perfect for YOU!
Designs include my custom-curated, 3D renderings, where you can preview your perfect space. Through virtual vision, be assured that the space you imagine, becomes the space of reality.
I also offer a flexible time-line. While traditional design tends to span a longer length of time than many want, many virtual designers offer a very abbreviated design-time. I merge the 2, allowing you to choose the pace.
In summary, I offer a very visual, engaging, creative, user-friendly, design process, where client-service is always the highest priority.
WHAT IF I HAVE A LIMITED BUDGET?
I believe that every person deserves beautiful surroundings. Flat-rate services are my hallmark and are offered for simplicity and transparency: no unexpected time-billing. Before launching your project, you'll know the fee.
In addition, I will work with you on formulating your budget for furniture and accessories, and incorporate any existing items you want to keep.
ARE THERE HIDDEN FEES?
No. I believe in transparency in pricing. The price of the package you purchase is the entire price you will pay. This takes a lot of the stress out of the process.
The exception is if you choose add-ons, like custom gallery walls, sofa, etc, or if we design a custom service for you.
But, even with custom add-ons, your price is stated upfront and there are no additional hourly fees.
