TIMELESS INTERIORS: WHAT IS YOUR FEE?

INVESTING IN A PROFESSIONAL INTERIOR DESIGNER IN LOS ANGELES IS A FINANCIAL COMMITMENT THAT WILL ACTUALLY SAVE YOU MONEY.

IN THE LONG RUN, IT ALSO ADDS VALUE TO YOUR HOME WHEN IT COMES TIME TO SELL.

After the initial project launch where I have spent an hour discovering your needs, what you want, what you don’t want, your taste, your opinions, what you love, and what you dislike, I go to work preparing a proposal based on the Scope of Work and Scope of Services that will be executed through out the design process. 

We charge a $250 fee for this service, which is due at the meeting.

THE HYBRID FEE STRUCTURE

As a designer, I charge an initial flat fee based on square footage, typically $5 - $15 per square foot for my creative vision, which is dependent on scope of work and scope of services.

For instance, if your home is 10,000 square feet, and I charge you $10.00 per square foot this is $100,000. 

Included in this fee are; the interior design concept, the formal interior design concept presentation and client approval, the design development, the formal design development presentation, and the hard and soft goods proposals and approval.

This is standard within the high-end residential design industry.

PROCUREMENT, MANAGEMENT, AND EXPEDITING OF GOOD

I will be sourcing and procuring furniture, art and accessories for you.

Furniture and decor item purchasing is a very small part of the overall interior design process, but an important one.

AARON B DUKE will pass on to you their designer net cost with a 30% management, procurement, and expedition fee of goods and services.

For you, we handle all meetings necessary to get all furniture, art, decorative accessories, and lighting specified.

As well as the managing of the paperwork associated with placing your orders, the follow up required with specialty vendors on each individual item, and the troubleshooting for any delays or delivery issues that arise.

SHIPPING, RECEIVING, WAREHOUSING, DELIVERY, AND INSTALLATION

All furniture and other soft goods shall be received and warehoused until the project site is complete and all goods have been received and inspected.

At this time, an installation and reveal will be scheduled.

The client shall be financially responsible for the shipping, receiving, warehousing, delivery, and installation.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Within flat design fee, this includes a one-hour client or site visit per week.  Should additional visits be required for home visits, meetings, or job site visits - just like a doctor, lawyer, or other professional - I will charge you for project management on a per hour basis, of $250.00 per hour.

INSTALLATION

AARON B DUKE shall coordinate all aspects of the installation of all soft goods.

The client shall be off site during the installation.

Once the installation is complete the client shall arrive at the site for a complete reveal of the final design in place.
