Working With Us


Our philosophy is that good design should be accessible, the process should be fun, and the end result should be as unique as those who share the space.  We're happy to work with budgets big and small, and we offer many levels of service.  Our design services are complimentary when the majority of your project’s furnishings are purchased through Reside Home. Whatever your design goals may be, it would be our pleasure to help you reach them.

How We Work

Not sure if you need, want, or can afford an interior designer?  Our clients tell us that we save them time and money, and deliver a custom result that is even better than they hoped for.  Here's how we do it:

In-Home Consultation – We review your space, and discuss your personal style and design goals.  We will brainstorm with you and explore options for achieving your desired look and functional design.  This meeting typically lasts 1 – 1.5 hours.  Our hope is to leave you excited and inspired to work with us to create your new space.  The cost for this service is $125 + tax, payable at the time of consultation.  If you decide to proceed, this consultation fee will be credited toward your first Reside Home furniture purchase.

Showroom-Related Services – Many of the services we provide are associated with selection of products from the Reside Home showroom such as: furniture, fabrics, rugs, accessories, artwork and lighting.  These design services are always free of charge.

External Services / Project Management – We may provide additional services to support your project that are outside of the showroom.  Examples include but are not limited to: kitchen and bath design, lighting design, selection of paint colors, plasters, exterior stucco and finishes, flooring materials, window coverings, furniture and accessories from sources other than Reside Home.  You may also ask us to serve as your liaison between you and tradespeople working in your home.  These services will be billed to you on an itemized, monthly invoice at a rate of $125 per hour based on the scope of the project and the complexity of the effort and agreed upon with you in advance.

We can work together on design projects in person as well as via phone, email, and even Skype or FaceTime if you’re out of town.  We serve many long-distance clients, so it’s part of our normal routine to work with your Realtor, neighbor, or property manager to install your new look in time for your return and treat you to an exciting “big reveal”!
