What is included in the consultation?**
After scheduling an appointment, an Interior Affairs representative will meet with you at the site to be decorated. We will take pictures and measurements of the space and discuss with you in detail, any ideas for colors, styles, furnishings, etc. that you may already have in mind. Your input coupled with our creative expertise, will come together to provide the Design Proposal which includes a detailed description of how the finished space will look including paint selections and pictures of furnishings.
In addition, an all-inclusive proposal will be provided with the complete cost for the project.
What if I am not satisfied with the Decorating Concept?
Your satisfaction is our main concern. If you are unhappy with the original Decorating Concept, Interior Affairs is glad to provide a revision. Helping you reach your decorating goals is our priority and because we aim to please, we are confident in delivering a design that you are sure to love!
How much does it cost to decorate a room?
Each space is unique in size, features and amenities. Because we work with all budgets, in order to provide an accurate price quote, please call our office and schedule your Consultation. An Interior Affairs representative will then make a personal visit and assess your space taking measurements, photos and discussing your needs.
