Project Fees

Initial Design Consultation – Concept Development

Fee : €250 for 2 hours

The initial design consultation covers a visit to your home where we have an opportunity to discuss your design challenge on site, review the layout, consider budget, commence colour and fabric ideas in order to obtain a clear concept for development.
This design service suits a client who is considering undertaking a design project and needs it assessed or a client who has a smaller project and is looking for a steer
I will suggest ideas for your consideration and a follow up email will be sent with summary of discussion. The client may be happy to take the ideas suggested and look after the implementation and sourcing from here, or alternatively we move to the Design Process Stage.
Note : If the consultation exceeds 2 hours, an hourly rate of €75 will apply for full or part hour.
Mileage charge may apply if the location is 20km or over from base.

Design Process Stage

Fee : €50 per hour

Following on from the Initial Design Consultation, the Design Process is about developing the design concept to a tangible reality. This involves my design time spent on sourcing the optimum end products, obtaining quotations, collecting samples, downloading moodboard images, reporting and communicating to you the client.
POA can be requested at this juncture as it will be based on number of rooms and elements involved but an hourly rate of €50 will apply.
2D & 3D Drawings would be an additional fee but are really only a consideration for commercial projects.

Project Management

Fee : €75 per hour

With the Design Process Stage conclusions provided, you may be happy to implement the scheme yourself and use your own contractors and all that entails.
Should you wish to retain me to manage scheduling and timing of works or to co-ordinate and be on site for my team of sub contractors an hourly rate of €75 will apply.
Mileage charge may apply if the location is 20km or over from base. See below for rates.

Colour Consultation

Fee : €150 for 1.5 hour

I can help you choose the perfect colour scheme for your space while taking aspect and other design considerations into play in the environs of your home. I carry a full selection of large colour cards for Fleetwood, Colourtrend, Little Greene and Farrow & Ball which can be viewed in your home and help you in your selection.
A summary email will be sent with list of colours specified. If the consultation exceeds 1.5 hours, an hourly rate of €50 will apply from that time for full or part hour.
Mileage charge may apply if the location is 20km or over from base. See below for rates.
