What are the common fears associated with working with a designer?

*Too expensive
*I will lose individuality, input, choice, CONTROL
*My home will not be “my own”
*I will have to get rid of everything I have, and start from scratch

Why SHOULD I work with a designer?
*Create a comprehensive, cohesive plan that can be implemented in stages
*Space planning and room design/furniture placement to maximize your living areas
*Avoid costly mistakes

Why  collaborate specifically with Elaine and Feather Your Nest?

My  answers to your concerns:

*Too expensive?   I am committed to working within any budget, and
SAVING money for my clients Because I am not aligned with any particular store or brands, I can 5nd high quality furnishings, fabrics, bedding and accessories at “best bang for the buck” prices. I rely on my extensive knowledge of where those “best buys” can be found….whether buying at consignment, auctions and estate sales, or designer-only resources. When I purchase through designer-only resources, my clients pay only my designer cost (generally 30% to 50% of retail.)

*I will lose individuality, input, choice, CONTROL? *My home will not be “my own.”
I never impose my style or will on my clients, but rather I work with them to create interiors that are truly reflective of them, not of me!

*I will have to get rid of everything I have, and start from scratch.
Unlike many designers, I encourage my clients to keep those pieces they love (*within reason) and incorporate them into the new design *good condition, compatible with the décor they envision, etc.

Even on the smallest project, I will always:
*Create a comprehensive, cohesive plan that can be implemented in stages, with   *Space planning and room design/furniture placement to maximize your living areas
To assure that my clients *Avoid costly mistakes

My Commitment to You

I pledge to help my clients achieve the home they have always envisioned at a price within their budget.
All things are possible, even affordable elegance!
