Budgeting for Accessories
We all know a project is not finished until it’s accessorized and styled. But determining a budget for that kind of thing can be challenging.
One tip I learned from Gillian Gillies (who is the guest on Podcast EP 005 Styling Matters), is to run through a high-low scenario with clients as you discuss the styling process.
“On this wall, over the fireplace, do you see an original painting? If so, that’s a minimum of $5,000. Or, do you see a litho, which is in the neighborhood of $2,000? Or do you see a poster for even less?”
Playing the high low game early can at least get clients thinking about costs associated with styling.
