What is included in the consultation?*
After scheduling an appointment, an Interior Affairs representative will meet with you at the site to be decorated. We will take pictures and measurements of the space and discuss with you in detail, any ideas for colors, styles, furnishings, etc. that you may already have in mind. Your input coupled with our creative expertise, will come together to provide the Decorating Concept. The Concept includes a detailed description of how the finished space will look and includes paint selections and pictures of furnishings. In addition, an all-inclusive proposal will be included, providing the complete cost for the project. Call for rates.
What if I am not satisfied with the Decorating Concept?

How much does it cost to decorate a room?
Each space is unique in size, features and amenities. Because we work with all budgets, in order to provide an accurate price quote, please call our office and schedule your Consultation.
