Have some questions for me? Here are a few I get asked often.
Q: How do I know that Spruce is right for me?
A: My services appeal to a wide range of people. You might fit into one or more of the following categories:
*You've been meaning to decorate [fill-in-the-blank space] for years.
*You know what you like when you see it, but don't know how to get there.
*You feel overwhelmed choosing colors, patterns, furniture, and accessories.
*You want to avoid turning your space into a showroom for your favorite store.
*You want a budget-friendly, new look that doesn't look budget-friendly.
Q: So how much does this cost anyway?
A: I charge $1000 per room, and require a 50% deposit at the start of our agreement and 50% after completion. I won’t surprise you with any additional fees along the way.
Q: But what if I only need help narrowing down paint colors or help selecting the right sofa for our living room?
A: My hourly service ($125/hr) is perfect for small design challenges.
Q: Is there a minimum budget?
A: Nope. I’ll stick to the number you give me, as long as there are affordable, decently-made sources I can provide.
Q: How long does this process take?
A: I aim to wrap up remote room projects within 30 days of our first conversation. That means I rely on you to respond within a few days to keep the process moving. I’ll promise to do the same.
Q: Will you come to my house and set everything up?
A: If you live near us in North Carolina, we can start the process with an in-person consultation. I’ll take a look at existing pieces you plan to keep and play with potential furniture configurations. I'm happy to come back and help you set up any pieces you order if you’re willing to pay additional hourly charges.
Q: Can you incorporate pieces I want to keep in your design?
A: Yes, of course. I'm a big believer in mixing new and old—which includes cherished pieces from your past.
Q: I love vintage pieces. Can you incorporate those too?
A: I do, too! And yes, I'm happy to search for vintage pieces on various resale websites. If you're local, I can scout shops in the area for fun finds.
