Frequently Asked Questions
What is full service design?
It starts with a phone call and initial in-home consultation that is about one hour ($150/hour). From there we’ll evaluate what the space needs, your goals for the room(s), determine a budget, etc. I’ll put together an estimate based on the scope of the project and then get started measuring, dreaming and sourcing my way toward your ideal space. I’ll check in along the way to see how you feel about certain large purchases and then present you with an overall design plan. After your approval, and deposit has been placed, all items will be ordered, professionals scheduled (as needed) and everything will be managed, delivered, and installed by us. The final stage is you getting to see your dream space in real life (HGTV reveal style!)
What areas do you serve?
We are currently serving the Pittsburgh and surrounding area, as well as State College, PA.
I have never hired a designer and have no idea how much a typical room costs. How do I determine my budget?
We’re going to get real here. Our goal is to give you a finished space. That means more than just a couch, lamp and coffee table. It is everything from the little accessories around the room to the lighting to the window treatments. Those finished items add up. A typical family room budget starts at around $15,000. We know, reality check! But if you were to add up everything in your current space (flooring/rugs, furniture, window treatments, art/accessories) it would probably come to the same amount (just spent over several years).
I need help with a room that is 99% complete, I just need one more piece. Can you help?
Due to our current schedule, we are only excepting full service design and two hour in-home consultations. If you still think your project is a good fit, please fill out our design form.
Do you offer fabric and/or wallpaper samples?
Yes. At this time they are not available for purchase on our site but please contact us and we will send you the swatches you would like.
How do I clean/care for the items I have purchased?
Pillow Covers: Remove cover using invisible zipper. Machine wash warm or cool on a gentle/delicate setting, using phosphate-free detergent. Iron on the back/unprinted side using a natural/cotton setting.
Fabric: Machine wash warm or cool on a gentle/delicate setting, using phosphate-free detergent. Machine dry on a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles. If required, iron using standard settings with the printed side down for best results. .
Wallpaper: Gently wipe down with a damp cloth. The use of cleaner or heavy rubbing can cause color to lift.
How do I install the wallpaper?
To install, simply soak in water and smooth onto surface. Complete step-by-step instructions will be included with every wallpaper order.
Is the wallpaper removable?
Yes. Our wallpaper is a durable paper with a water-activated adhesive backing. It’s long lasting but fully removable, making it great for apartments, rentals, and an array of craft and decorating projects. However it is NOT reusable once removed.
How much wallpaper do I need to cover my wall?
Our wallpaper rolls are 24" wide and can be cut to any length in whole feet. If you do not see the length that you need in the product listing, please contact us. The rolls are printed so that the pattern lines up perfectly when one roll is applied next to another - no need to worry about pattern matching!
Can you do custom orders, change colors, custom sizes, etc.?
Yes! Please contact us and we can help you with your custom project.
