What is CHID’s Design Style? My team and I have designed many design styles and have the capabilty and enjoy working with any. The basics of design are the same with any style. It is the furniture, accessoires, rugs and other products that create the desired style. The most popular design style for most of my clients is Transtional Style. Any color scheme can be used.

Can you buy more than I can? My relationships with To The Trade Vendors and local businesses and manufacturers gives me more purchasing options than most home or business owners. If you have connnections to vendors or local businesses that I can use in your design project, I invite you to share them with me.
Can you work with my furniture budget and my existing items? I can skillfully 1-blend higher priced items with budget conscious ones, 2-use your existing items with new products, 3-use all budget conscious products or 4- use all higher priced and custom items. I have furniture manufacturers, vendors, trades, craftsman for all budgets.
What is the time frame for my project? It is dependent on the number of rooms, if trades will be involved, construction and the size of your furniture order.
What is my involvement in my project? At the beginning we will discuss your design style and get your input for furniture, finishes, rugs, accessoires, etc. Once everything has been decided, depending on your design package you can be very involved or we do everything.
How are purchases handled? If you buy my Purchasing Package Add-On for your Room Design Package, I handle all the purchases. If not, you are responsible for purchasing.
How can you save me money? We pass along to you our To The Trade Discounts and No Mark-Up and know when items or services are over priced. Working with us before the start your design project, CHID can help you avoid costly mistakes with paint colors, incorrect furniture sizes and more.
Can you help me define my design style? Using my Design Questionnaire and our conversations I can define and refine your style and expertly blend design styles. Your existing home or office will also will give insight into your likes and dislikes, lifestyle and more.
Do you have references? References are on the main website page and I can provide more, if requested. Any questions are welcomed.
Can you integrate my existing pieces into the new plan? Before I create your design plan, you are asked to provide a list of existing items your want to incorporate into your new design plan. I strive to use them, but if your items will not be appropriate, I explain why and offer other choices.
Why should I hire you when I already have a contractor? Bringing me in at the beginning in your contruction or design process allows me to ask the correct questions, make suggestions and co-design your project with you, your contractor, and professionals. I see the full vision of your project and process all the information and communicate with you and your contractor. I monitor your project throughout construction with appropriate on-site visits, and coordinate any required changes and additions.
