My Little Chalet

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What do you really do as an interior stylist/decorator ?

As an interior stylist/decorator I can help you style/decorate your home by: selecting colour schemes, choosing furnishings that suit your lifestyle and budget as well as your practical needs, arranging furniture layouts, selecting decorative items and accessories to help you bring an amazing look to your existing space.

2. Why should I hire you?

I can help bring your design inspiration to life. I can also help if you want to have a room makeover but you don’t have time to handle it or need an infusion of inspiration and ideas. I am also an expert in getting you the looks you want for your home, while keeping to a very reasonable and realistic budget without compromising on quality.

3. Why should I choose you instead of using a free in-store design assistance service ?

While many retailers offer free design assistance service, and this can be helpful and valuable, they are not really working for free but rather for their employer, therefore suggesting as many of their products as they can for you. I work for you only – no commission from anyone else – , with your personality, style and budget in mind, helping you achieve a beautiful home for as little as possible.

4. What areas do you cover for your In Person service? Can I still use the On-Line service if I live within those areas?

I cover areas around and within 30 minutes drive of postcode DA1. Yes, of course anyone can use my On-Line service, if they want.

5. What is my role as a client in the design process?

You, as my client, are the most important part of the whole design process. My aim is help you define and enhance your distinctive style and bring it to life in the design of your project room and the choices of colours, furniture and accessories. You can help me achieve that by providing me with any photos or magazine clippings of styles or decor that you like, ideas of certain colours and effects you want to have in your room also from a functional or practical aspect.

6. Is any project too small?

No, not at all. I am happy to help with any project that you have, no matter how small. I want to create a unique interior, just for you, making your space pleasing and functional.

7. Can I choose my own design/style?

Yes, of course. It is your home and it needs to reflect your story, your personal taste and style. I want to provide you with a tailor-made design that fits you perfectly, offering you guidance and helping you make the right choices for your home.

8. What if I don’t like certain items on the mood board? Can you find alternatives?
