1.  INTRO

Two years ago, we realized that we were turning away qualified, legitimate clients because they didn’t fit into our model for an ideal client needing full service design – that was just foolish on our part. We had to find a way to help these potential clients. Thus, our designer for a day program was born.

2.  WHAT IS IT?

Designer for a Day Program is basically a 4-hour concierge service where we are at the beck and call of our "mini" client. We can tackle anything requested - designing a room from A-Z, selecting a full interior or exterior paint palette, installing a family gallery - anything at all that is challenging that client. We are generally at the clients house from 10am-2pm and the cost is $1500.

3.  WHAT CAN THE CLIENT DO TO PREPARE?

A.     Speak openly and honestly with all family members about what the desired outcome is
B.     Be honest with your budget. This is an investment even though it’s a DFD.
C.     Prepare an ideabook via Pinterest, Houzz, magazine cut outs, etc. to illustrate your taste or at a minimum what you gravitate towards.

A.     Walk thru the latest Wansky DFD (with all retail).

8.  TESTIMONIALS

A.   From Melanie: I had Kelly and Joanna over for a design consult today and I couldn't be more pleased with my result! They helped me design a basement complete with all new finishes and furniture. They were punctual, professional and extremely efficient. I can't believe what they accomplished in four hours! I am already looking forward to having them back for help with my next project.

B.    From Amy: f you're looking for home decorating assistance you must contact Kandrac & Kole. We recently built a house that was contractor quality. I wanted to transform my house into a home, but after making independent purchases soon realized I needed expert advice. This was my first experience with a home design team and am more than pleased. I expected nice items, but the quality of their selections for my home exceeded expectations. The art, light fixtures, and pillows in addition to their recommendations were exceptional. When questions arose their responsiveness was without delay. I chose design for a day and couldn't be more happy with the quality of service. When I come home each evening my first thought is....how nice my home looks and how happy I am with the outcome. This was an investment and money well spent.
