We love dreaming with our guests at the shop. Just the perfect pillow, or an entire home plan, we are happy to help with fabric & wallpaper selection, lighting options, rugs & accessories. Our complimentary design guidance is always available whether you just pop over, or set an appointment. It’s great to make an in-store appointment for larger projects or if you’d like some dedicated time with a member of our team. This is a great option if you know what you want & just need help with details and implementation.
This offers an opportunity for more focused and customized design advice. Being in the space allows us get an idea for the feel of your home, the existing aesthetic, and make tailored suggestions on helping you move toward the look you want. We always want to honor your budget, so let us know what you have in mind and we will make selections accordingly. The rate for in-home design consultations is $90/hr. Here’s an idea of what happens:
- measure for window treatments, rugs, bedding
- discussion of appropriate fabrics & textures
- furniture arrangement
- suggestions on use/flow of spaces
- paint color recommendations
- photos & notes are taken and a file is created for you which we will keep at the shop.
After the visit, I will spend time at the shop planning your project: (this time is complementary)
- Select fabrics, rugs, furniture, wallpaper
- Plan space/flow
- suggest accessories/editing
Then we will get together for a follow-up visit. This usually happens at the shop where we have access to all the resources that The Keeping Room has to offer. There is no charge for this follow-up visit. We will tweak and edit, create and dream until we love the plan & are ready to move forward. We have a trove of fantastic vendors and artisans to deliver the perfect thing for your space, but are also happy to work with items from other stores when appropriate. Time spent shopping other retailers or trade-only brands that we do not carry in store is charged at the regular rate. After the order is placed, you relax and we get to work creating your one-of-a-kind custom project. Time spent in the home overseeing installation is charged at the regular rate.
Please let us know if there is a budget you would like to work with as we plan for your project. Most of the time, we cannot offer discounts on furniture and decor, but there may be instances when floor models can be purchased for slight price reductions. We will do everything we can to provide you the best design experience, and will keep you informed and comfortable with all choices regarding your investment in your space.
