EP 004 | Styling and Accessorizing Matters with Gillian Gillies
April 11, 2017
About this Episode
Accessorizing and styling your design project is not a frivolous pursuit, nor is it an optional extra. Rather, styling is a key component of the finished project. As professional designers, we want to plan for this process, budget for styling items and deliver them—all as cohesive part of the client experience. If your clients want “wow”, then you need an effective styling strategy.
In this episode we learn:
- how to introduce the styling conversation
- why projects that aren’t styled are not projects you want
- strategies for building a styling budget
- how to leave a lasting impression on clients
Budgeting for styling up front means you don’t have to ask for additional money at the end of the project.
If you move items on your own, and you are not a professional mover, your insurance will not cover you in the event something is damaged.
