Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

01. I'm building with a project builder, can I still engage your services?

How exciting! Building with a project builder is  great value way to get a tailored home. I have worked with a number of project builders over the years. Yes, if your buidler has no objections you can share your inclusions with me ahead of your colour applointment and we can prepare a selection plan.

02. How long does the design process take?

The design process timeframe varies based on the scope of work and the client’s confidence in decision making. On average I would allow at least 2 weeks from initial briefing to first presentation and another week for finetuning.

03. How much does it cost?

I work on an hourly rate of $150ph +GST. The initial phone consultation is free, where you get to tell me about your project needs and determine if my services are right for you. If an on-site meeting is required (for example to view an existing home and discuss renovations) it is charged at a flat rate of $220 + GST*.  Once I have all the information,  I can put together a proposal which will include a set number of hours to complete the discussed scope of works. This will be a fixed price so you won’t need to worry if I go over hours. Design fees are payable upfront prior to commencement of design work.


*Additional travel fees may apply to properties outside 60km of Norh Lakes

04. Do you do renders?

Yes, I love working on 3D visualisation! Even though this service is not compulsory to complete a successful design selection it adds confidence to your decision making when you see your finishes applied to your home in 3D!

05. I'm a builder, is there a lock in contract for colour consulting?

No, not at all! If you’re a builder who requires a design/colour consultant on as needed basis I can help with that. We can discuss  package price per client that is suitable to your business. I can meet with your clients at your office, display home or Brisbane Build and Design Centre. The selections will be guided by your inclusions or special instructions. You will receive a detailed finishes schedule with links to products, ready for production estimating and ordering.

06. Do you do display homes for builders?

Display homes are my favorite! I am proud of the display homes that I have designed over the years, many of them winning HIA Design awards. I would love to talk to you about your upcoming display home and discuss a suitable design package.
