REALTED TO DESIGN SERVICES
So glad you’re interested in a consultation! I offer free 15 minute consolations, where we briefly get to know each other and I can answer any questions you might have about working together. You can book that consolation directly online here! From there, if we decided to move forward we will then schedule our in-depth 60 minute consultation where we really get into the nitty gritty of your project goals. We’ll be measuring rooms, talking through design ideas, and really getting a feel for the outcome of your project. Following that consultation I will send you a custom proposal on timeline & investment for us to work together and complete your project. This in-depth consolation is $150 and will be credited back you on the last invoice of your project.
I’m so excited for the potential to work with you! To start you can schedule your free 15 minute consultation, contact me through the email form on my contact page, or email me directly at Hello@MariaMurphyCreative.com. Once we decide we’re a good fit to work together, we will then schedule your in-depth 60 minute consolation (see above question for more details on consultations). Once we finalize the scope of work and timeline, you can then secure your spot on my calendar with a 20% non-refundable working retainer.
I know your investment is very important to you! And I’m so honored you’re considering working with me! I believe in being as transparent as possible with my pricing so you know up front what to expect. I charge my design services at an hourly rate with minimums depending on type of service. You can see the break down of those rates on my services page here. And then I also charge a 5% designers fee to any purchases you make through me. But I can guarantee you will still end up saving money because I always pass along 100% of my trade discounts to you. Those discounts average 20-25% in savings.
If you’re curious about what to expect from a custom proposal, a good rule of thumb is:
- for new construction or remodel, home design fees typically fall between 15-20% of construction costs
- for home furnishing, home design fees typically fall between 500 -1500 per room + 5% designer fee on purchases
These are just general estimates to help you calculate your budget. A formal estimate and proposal for your specific project will follow after our in-depth consolation.
Yes, just like any other service based industry, you would be paying me for my time, not the end product. And any furniture you purchase will be subject to the individual vendor return policies. But I assure you, I have streamlined the process of us working together to give you plenty of opportunities along the way to make decisions & revisions. You will be as involved throughout the process as you would like to be, to guarantee you’ll be happy with your end result!
But this brings up a great point, with any creative industry it is best for all parties involved that you go with someone that you already know you love their work. If you love bright bold colors and Hollywood glam design, make sure your designer has that style of work in their portfolio. 🙂
Unfortunately there is no clear answer to this question. Each project is unique and therefore has completely different timelines. To get a clearer idea of how long your project might take you can schedule a free 15 minute consolation with me!
Absolutely not! Thank goodness for technology! With my e-design services I have the capability to work with clients all over the world! It’s only with my full service design that I have to keep my clients close to home 🙂
Interior Design is in my blood, plain and simple. Thanks to my parents being architects I practically grew up on construction sites and now see the work through the lens of a designer. I studied all aspects of design, color theory and beyond with my BFA in graphic design and I’ve been fortunate enough to work for brands like HGTV for over 10 years now. I’m also a trusted ASID member, which enables me to become trade partners with a growing list of vendors, and I always pass along 100% of those discounts to you!
