It is the manner in which a home is styled and coloured that can be responsible for creating the mood we live in.
We can’t possibly compare ourselves and our homes with anyone else because we each enjoy and treasure different things. If we stake our happiness on how we measure up to others we deny ourselves the chance to surround ourselves with what makes us happy. Mimicking someone else’s look is a certain recipe for unhappiness.
I'll start by asking not what you want to have but rather how do you want to feel? What are your passions, rituals, needs and desires? What are the things that influence your life?
To discover you own style, we begin to understand what gives you pleasure, what wows you. Keep your eyes open and begin to really notice texture, light, patina, shape, form and colour. Tune into how each affects your mood and your spirit.
Then we can replicate this sensory pleasure in your house to create your home.
We can work together to discover your own individual style and create the look and feel you want to live in.
You may simply need a little direction to select one paint colour for one room. Or you may require hand holding right thoughout the selection process for a major renovation. Maybe you'd like a sounding board for creative decorating solutions. Everyone has their own way of tackling their own project.
Colour Consultations include paint colour selection samples and colour schedules. Clients often provide samples of finishes to consider and finalise selections eg tiles, bench stones, laminex, carpet etc. I provide samples of many popular hard finishes for selection. Eg laminex, Caesar Stone, Corian, Smart Stone etc. Please let me know your requirements before consultation.
I charge a simple fixed price for interior and for exterior colour consultations. With a discount for consulting on both the inside and outside of your home in one appointment. So you know exactly where you stand before you start.
Styling is charged at an hourly rate and discounts apply for ongoing projects of 5 hours and beyond. My fee schedule is available on request.
Either an interior or an exterior consultation can take about 2 hours, I guide you through the selection process based on your requirements and your desires, it is a process we go through together and a process that empowers you to make your decisions. Best of all, it's fun!
