Residential Interior Design Services

Every client & project is unique, so we can customize our services accordingly.  Please reach out and we will provide specific feedback and recommendations tailored to your specific needs.

What sets Cley Atelier apart from other Interior Designers?

We believe in efficiency, problem solving & paying attention to the details.  Hiring an interior designer does not need to break the bank nore does it need to turn into a long drawn out process with tons of meetings and coordination.   If you are planning to invest in new furniture or renovations then we highly recommend consulting a professional before jumping in.  By asking the right questions,  we can help you avoid potentially costly mistakes.   Christine specializes in virtual design & has worked on projects remotely her entire 20+ year career (including large-scale, custom & luxury projects).  Trust me it can be done!  And it saves everyone involved time and money.

If your project timeframe and overall budget is a bit up in the air and you would like the flexibility to implement at your own pace & as budget allows.  This leaves room for things to be phased in.

Full Service Design

Everything  ~   Including the Kitchen Sink

Full Service Design packages are fully customized to each client and are typically for larger scale &/or whole home renovations where the client would likely also require construction drawings & a fully flushed out and detailed design package with specifications + project management for the duration of a project from concept through construction & installation.

Do any of these apply to you?

You want to renovate multiple rooms or your whole home and would prefer to have the profesional handle everything.

You are interested in achieving a very curated & customized design unique to you and your home.  This could include custom furniture, curated art, fully customized built-ins and much more.

You are interested in in having your furnishings and decor sourced from high-end showrooms & "to the trade only" vendors

You are looking for a designer who can work with your contractor &/or architect to develop and implement a large scale renovation or full new construction project.

Perfect for the discerning client who's renovating or building their dream home and  understands that hiring a professional designer for full-service design is an investment in their home.  We also feel its an investment in yourself and your quality of life.  This is for someone who is looking for a professional to develop a comprehensive and functional design customized to them & who can manage the project and coordinate all of the details from start to finish.  

                                                   Project Scope       |      Investment                                       

  Custom Estimates   |    Contact Us

Typically full service starts at around $15k+ per room (on the low end) & can easily go up to into six figures for large new construction or major remodeling projects.  Please also note that those are design fees only and do not include the furnishings or construction costs.  Please also budget for furnishings, which can start at around $35K per room (on the low end) and furnishing a whole home will start at around $150K and go up from there.  Things really do add up but we believe this is an investment you won't regret!

(Full Service design is typically provided on an hourly T&M basis with initial estimates provided based on the overall project scope & schedule.  An initial down payment / retainer is required to start work then the client is typically billed monthly or per project phase depending on the agreement.   

*Please email Christine with any questions or for more information.

*Please note:  Cley Atelier is not an Architectural firm and does not handle building permits.  The client is responsible for hiring additional outside consultants as needed, including the architect & contractor but we are happy to help with this process upon request.

Hourly Assistance As Needed  (15 Hours Min. to Start)

If you are planning to handle your design project mostly on your own but would love to hire a professional to help out with various things along the way then this may be perfect for you.  

Does this sound like you?

You would love to hire an interior designer to go furniture shopping with you.  (For feedback, recommendations, etc.)

You feel like your home is pretty much there but it's missing some details to help pull it all together and you'd love some extra help with the final touches.

Perhaps there is something specific you're looking for (say an amazing chandelier you found on pinterest) but you're not having any luck finding something similar, we can help!

Or perhaps you've hired an architect or contractor to design/build a new construction home for you.  We highly recommend having an Interior Designer review the plans to provide feedback and recommendations from an interiors perspective.  (Trust me, we have seen many a bedroom with very strange window locations where there's no wall space left for a headboard or oddly shaped rooms that would be very trick to accommodate furniture, or missed opportunities specifically when it comes down to the details of a kitchen or bathroom. )

Perfect if you’re someone who would like to have a professional at hand to be able to go to with questions or ask for help along the way but aren't really sure where to start or predict what you will want help with along the way.  We highly recommend pairing this with an Expert Advice Consultation to start and this is a great way to wade in to your project slowly then the services can easily be added or adjusted as things develop.
