Gilded Hearth offers a wide variety of interior design services for the greater Los Angeles area. My rates start at $75 an hour for traditional services and I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation. Some of my past projects have included the renovation of an outdated cabin to a modern rustic ski chalet, the entire home of a colorfully eclectic family and numerous whimsical kids spaces.
One of the other ways we can collaborate is thru e-design. This means that anyone, anywhere can receive great design for their homes for a customized flat fee. I've had clients all over the map for whom I was able to bring their inspirations to life in a range of budgets. My main goal is to give you a space that wows you but is still practical for your lifestyle.
HOW DOES E-DESIGN WORK?
FIRST STEP- I will ask you to fill out a design questionnaire that will give me an idea as to what the scope of the project is and the direction you would like to take your room or home. I will ask for measurements for the spaces, a list of existing furniture you plan to keep, photos of your home and links to inspiration images. From this questionnaire I will ask any additional questions I may have and then come up with a customized quote for the design fee.
SECOND STEP- After you have received your invoice and paid your deposit for services as well as signed our agreement I will send you an initial moodboard. In this moodboard we will check to see if I have down the general vibe of what you are going for. Once you provide me with feedback I come up with a more detailed and specific design board tailored to your home and give you a better feel for how it would look spatially.
THIRD STEP- After viewing your Design Board you will provide me with specific feedback on all the items and what is working or not working for you. From there we discuss what we want to see in terms of options and I come up with 6-12 additional options per piece on anything from pillows to rugs to sofas. It is during this step that make we ensure all the pieces fit perfectly and I send over modified design boards as needed to see how it is coming together. Once you have approved the final design I require the rest of the payment and I send over a complete design package including a floor plan, detailed instructions and additional boards if needed to help you style it as if I am in your home doing it myself. I also send you a shopping list that includes everything you need to purchase all the items to complete your home on your timeline and under your budget.
FINAL STEP- Shop and style! You can follow up with me at anytime for questions concerning any item on the design and we can do a 20 minute video chat to help with any styling questions you have.
