A 2-hr meeting at your home with Alex
Ask as many questions as you need to feel clear and confident in your design project
Detailed discussion of your ideas and the roadblocks you’ve experienced
Plenty of new ideas, specific advice on any problem areas and honest opinions

How it Works
Initial Phone Call
Once you’ve made contact with our team, we’ll get on the phone for a 15-20min phone call to hone in on what you’re after, and if this service is suited to you.
Questionnaire & Payment
We’ll send through a questionnaire to get a better understanding of your home and your ideas so far, so we can make the best use of our time together in the meeting. Payment is made.
Get ready! We meet at your house for 1.5-2hrs for the consultation itself.
You’ll receive an action plan with next steps, all the recommendations we discussed and suppliers within a couple of days after the meeting.
You can email or call us once after we send through the notes to clarify anything or ask further questions.
Get going on all the recommended actions, and send us any photos of your progress!
