To the Designer:
What is your style?
I don’t really have a style. Yes, is there one that I am drawn to from personal liking? Of course! But I would never push that onto a client who doesn’t like that style. Your style is what makes you happy!
What cities do you work in?
I work in Albany, Corvallis, Salem, Portland metro area. Willing to work elsewhere on a case by case basis
How far would you travel for a project?
All depending on the project, I am willing to drive around 50 miles for a project, but am happy to work with you if you are outside those boundaries!
Can you integrate my favorite pieces of furniture or accessories into the design?
Yes! I love doing that. I think it adds personal charm to the space that I am designing.
What if an interior designer suggests a style I don’t like?
Please tell us! It is so important to be honest on what you like/dislike in the beginning. Having transparency, helps make the design process go smoothly.
I don’t know what style I want – can you still help?
Yes! Of course! Our job is to help in any need that we can!
The Process of Working With: Anna Petrone
Hiring an interior designer: How does it work?
Contact me and tell me what Design Service fits your scope of work the best (if you aren’t sure, shoot me an email). Then I will send you a couple of questions and then we will schedule a consultation!
What happens at the first consultation:
Anna will meet with you and everyone else involved to discuss the project. We will discuss your design aesthetic, time frame and budget. The initial meeting can last up to two hours. During the initial meeting, we freely give our knowledge, insights and suggestions.
How long will the first meeting last?
Should last about an hour or two, but I am happy to spend more time if that is needed!
How do you show the final design?
I will present the design to you on my computer and then I will have hard copies of everything so you can take home the designs and review them.
What if I am unhappy with your designs?
Well, hopefully this doesn’t happen, but that’s why we have an edit button. I will work with you until we get it right!
Fees and Regulations
Is there a contract?
Yes, there are contracts for several of my services. For example, if you select a full design or designer for a day you will be asked to sign one. But don’t worry we will go over the information in full so there is full transparency.
When do you charge fees?
Each Design Service has a design fee (located in the description of the service). Please let me know if you have any questions about the pricing or what the service may include.
