Interior Design FAQs

How do I embark on an interior design project with Global Home?
The process begins with an initial design consultation. We meet in your home for the initial interview. During the initial interview we determine your design needs, budget, how you will use your space, ascertain your personal style, and inventory your current furniture.

From then, we take about two weeks to deliver an initial detailed project estimate.

How long does the entire design process take?
Generally, six months is a good rule of thumb. Smaller projects can take as little as three months. Larger projects can take upwards of one year.

Can my current furniture be incorporated into the new design plan?
Yes, to a point. We strive to utilize as much of your current furniture into the new design plan as possible. You’ve spent a lifetime accumulating things that make you happy. We find that your current furniture is a good jumping-off point for a more cohesive design plan. Often, however, some pieces just can’t be used. If they are of poor quality, too worn, out-dated or just not in keeping with the new design plan, we cannot use them.

How much will it cost?
Costs vary depending on the scope of projects. We've completed scores of projects over the past decade for as little as $20,000 or as much as $1 Million. Suffice it to say that there's a range.

In what style of décor do you specialize?
We work in a wide variety of design genres depending on the needs and tastes of our clients. We interpret the personalities and decor tastes of our clients into living spaces that are refined, modern, luxurious, exotic and comfortable.  Well-versed in the gamut of decorating styles, we like mixing them, thereby making our overall design aesthetic uniquely Global Home.
