CONSULTATION (PICK MY BRAIN)

Initial consultation - $350

This is for you if:

  • You want to DIY a few projects and need some ideas of how to pull it together
  • You have been thinking about remodeling and not sure where to begin
  • You are wondering what to “ballpark” budget for a bath or kitchen remodel
  • You are ready to sell and not sure what you should do to get it ready
  • You need new paint color and suggestions on other finishes (lights, flooring, tops)
  • You want to save money, time and frustration and make the right decisions the first time!

Think of the consultation as a design crash course up to 2 hours. You will get ALL of my knowledge from the past 25 years in the construction and design business.  Including:

  • Actual paint color selections if needed
  • New fresh ideas
  • A general plan of action to help you get focused with establishing a game plan to create a space you love!

Before our visit, I'll have you fill out a short survey

**Please note: This consultation is up to 2 hours.  The consultation does not include any physical design work.

After the consultation we can discuss if you want any further assistance in your project and what that would look like.

What my customers are saying:

"We thought it would be nice to have the help, but had NO idea how much time, effort, expense and stress she would save us! With her experience and great eye, we were able to pick out a gorgeous paint pallet for the whole house, granite tops, ideas on lighting, hardware and other touches that we didn't think of." -Jim & Nancy

PAINT CONSULTATION (COLOR ONLY)

 

Initial consultation - $150  (*1-3 colors)

Ahhh…that elusive paint color palette!  A paint

color can help pull everything together.  You will know when it feels right….but you have tired dozens of paint samples, browsed Houzz and Pinterest, yet it still feels wrong. It’s a little overwhelming.

As a certified True Color Expert, I will bring a full set of large paint boards to your home.  Together, we will look at room flow and tones of existing fixed elements such as flooring, furniture and cabinetry, selecting the perfect paint colors the first time!

At the end of our consultation you will have a clear color direction along as well as specific wall color recommendations for your project.

* Paint color only!  If you are seeking more than just paint color ideas, please choose the “pick my brain” consultation.

What my customers are saying:

"Paula does AMAZING work. From helping us pick out the perfect paint colors to brighten our new home to finding an inexpensive rug that looks fabulous in our living room (that I would have never even known would look so good!). She also accompanied us to pick out furniture to help us find the exact style/color/patterns to make our house "pop". I highly recommend Paula's services to anyone who is stuck in a blah home!" - Katie

What my customers are saying:

"Because of Paula, we now have a beautiful, new master bathroom. She made our remodel a fun experience from start to finish. She made great suggestions and helped make decisions that we would still be stewing about. I would recommend her for any project and can't wait to be able to work with her again." - Joni & Joel

Because every project is unique, I need to learn about your project and your needs before offering a quote. If you are interested in having me help you with any or all of these decisions and want to discuss your project, please complete this short survey.

What my customers are saying:

"Paula figured out very early on that I needed my selections narrowed down to help make my decisions on my new home. She helped keep the project manageable because I work and have three kids with crazy schedules. She thought about my family’s needs now, and as they grow because we plan on being in this house a long time! Her contacts made it easier and she took the time to explain things and went above and beyond working with us on getting the plan just right. We had no clue as to what we needed when we started, from a design perspective and she guided us the whole way. She helped me choose everything from fixtures to paint colors!" -Traci

GET YOUR HOME READY TO SELL
 

Whether you’re a homeowner getting ready to sell or a real estate agent working with a client, you want to present a home in its best possible light. A well staged home sells 3 times faster and for 6-17% more. Furthermore, realtors are more likely to show a house that looks move-in ready.

Initial consultation - $350

I will tour your home from curb to the backyard, suggesting improvements that you can do to help sell if faster and educating you on maintaining the home while it's on the market.

This will include:

  • Choosing paint colors that are fresh and current, which compliment your home’s permanent finishes.
  • Suggesting which pieces of furniture to keep, move or get new
  • Suggesting what to de-clutter or remove from walls

After the consultation, we can discuss if you wish to hire me to manage any of the improvements I suggested for your project.

If you need additional help with interior finishes (shopping or staging) my rates are as follows:

Half Day Rate: $600
Whole Day Rate: $1200
(plus anything purchased)

What my customers are saying:

"Paula was such a pleasure to work with in helping me paint our whole house and decorate a few areas! She knew how hesitant I was in choosing too bold of colors, so she helped me pick out a few neutral colors that I absolutely love! I can interchange decorations all year and I'm so happy with how everything has turned out! She is aware of your budget and has a knack for picking out beautiful decor. I had such a fun time shopping with her, and, most importantly, she worked around my busy schedule to get what I wanted done in a timely manner. You will not be disappointed to have Paula help you with your household updates!!" -Jenni & Josh
