My goal is to make hiring a designer as easy, flexible and stress-free as possible for you. Below is
a summary of how the process (usually) works and what you can expect at each stage:


In-Home Design/Colour Consultation

The first step in virtually any project is an in-home design consultation. (If you’re seeking a small amount of guidance it may, in fact, be your only step!)

This is a two-hour in-home meeting where I will provide as much value as possible in the form of paint colour recommendations, answers to questions and preliminary ideas and suggestions based on your goals and vision. If that’s all you need, you can take my advice and run with it. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for more, we can discuss the scope and scale of your project at that time too.



From there – and if desired – I will create a design proposal for how we can tackle your project in a way that suits your needs, timing and budget.



From there, we’ll work away on the deliverables for your project – either all at once or in order of priority, if you prefer a phased approach. I can help with as little or as much as you like for a set hourly rate.

Timing is Everything!

Interior design may feel like a ‘last stage’ consideration but it pays to bring me into the fold as early as possible. I can participate in meetings with contractors and/or architects and help ensure that you maximize the function (and beauty) of your space.

If your project is more DIY, sitting down early in the process can help avoid oversights and/or costly mistakes.

Vanessa was invaluable during our home renovation.  She is extremely detail oriented and has an amazing ability to execute.   She completely understood our vision for our century home and brought it back to life, beyond what I actually could have imagined.  I never walk into a room without reflecting upon how much I love what she created. Such a beautiful outcome!

“Our house needed a renovation before we could sell it. Vanessa managed the project and
dealt with all the necessary details including colours, kitchen, bathroom, flooring and lighting. 
The process was smooth and the end result was excellent.”
