FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTERIOR DESIGN AND DECORATION?
If you are planning to build a new home or renovate your existing home you are looking for an interior designer who has received training in developing an overall concept, budgeting and construction. If your project includes just the furnishings and styling, then “decoration” is the appropriate service for your needs. At GGID we are proficient in both areas. When you book a Discovery Call with us, we will review your needs and suggest an appropriate service for you.
WHAT IS FULL-SERVICE INTERIOR DESIGN?
Our Full-Service process means that we are able to manage your project from initial concept to the final installation. We collaborate with you on the initial concept and further refine and elevate that design. We focus on space plans, floorplans, construction details, cabinet design and specifications. We help you select all the materials, plumbing and lighting. We work as your advocate with your architect, contractor and any other project team members to ensure your vision and goals are always a priority. We work closely with our vetted network of resources to create custom furnishing, wall and window treatments. We source antiques and architectural elements that add character to your home. In our full-service projects, all purchasing goes through us and we take care of everything for you.
What is custom furniture design and why would I need it?
For our full-service projects the goal is to create a unique environment tailored to you individually and not something you will see elsewhere. We design and source well-made objects and furnishings designed by us in collaboration with craftspeople, makers and artisans to ensure quality and longevity in the things that surround you in your home, items of beauty and meaning.
WHAT IF I LIKE TO SHOP MYSELF?
For our clients who need some help and guidance but prefer to do all of the shopping and legwork themselves, (purchasing, delivery, installation, coordinating) then we recommend utilizing a consultation first to ask any questions you may have about your space then head over to GGID’s Shoppable Collections to select and purchase items yourself.
How can I best utilize a Consultation and how do I prepare?
For each level of consultation, we will cover what is most important to you, whether it’s a shorter version via video consultation or a full-day on site visit. This service is ideal for those who have some idea of what home related questions they need answered and are willing to do the do the work themselves. Many of our clients are design savvy and enjoy the process of putting their space together themselves but find benefit in a design professional’s expertise to answer the difficult questions. We suggest that you collect your questions and prioritize them, gather inspirations photos, product links, floorplans you may have, material swatches and mood board images, anything like that. It’s up to you. You can email those to us at least one day before the consultation. On the zoom call we will go through it together. You can even walk around your space with your mobile devise or laptop.
WHAT CAN I ACCOMPLISH WITH A 60-MINUTE CONSULTATION?
We can cover a lot in one hour. We find that it is most productive to keep the scope to one room or area and get your most pressing questions answered. If we run out of time you can always purchase additional one-hour sessions or opt for a four-hour session.
WHAT CAN I ACCOMPLISH IN A FOUR-HOUR CONSULTATION?
Just like the one-hour session, we can cover a lot of ground. If you have multiple rooms, plan reviews or more complex questions we offer this level as an economical option to multiple one-hour sessions.
WHAT CAN I ACCOMPLISH IN A FULL DAY CONSULTATION?
This service is ideal for an in person meeting with Gabrielle at your location and can cover any topic important to you such as the feasibility of a remodel or renovation, which historic features of your home are must saves or potential discards, furnishing and decorating ideas, a color consultation or how to best prepare your home for sale. We will walk through your project together and discuss solutions to your design dilemmas. If appropriate, Gabrielle will provide a written report of the main items discussed and, in some cases, provide a quick floor plan sketch and style board. The amount of work we get done depends on the home’s size and number of areas we cover. This is also an excellent way to see if we are a good fit for a larger full-service project.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED IN THE CONSULTATION?
We may recommend retail vendors appropriate for your situation however custom vendors, contractor recommendations and any precise measurements for furniture need careful consideration and are specific to a full-service project.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
We understand that life is busy and things happen. If you have to reschedule or cancel your appointment time and day, we will do our best to accommodate you. Email us at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled time at email@example.com. Please, out of respect for each other’s time, no last-minute changes or cancellations will be honored. We show up to do our best for our clients.
