Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never hired an interior designer before and feel a bit intimated because I’m not sure what to expect.

Many of my clients have never worked with a designer before. This is why we offer the “Meet and Greet”. It’s an opportunity for us to meet in person, without obligation, and learn how we can help you with your project. We understand that no two homes, projects, or clients’ needs are alike so this one-on-one time gives us a better understanding of how we can best work with you on your project.

Do you have contractors, wallpaper hangers, installers, and electricians that you recommend?

We do have various tradespeople that we have worked with on many jobs that we can recommend. Though you are welcome to work with any contractor or tradespeople, you want, with the exception of drapery or window covering installers.

I am moving and need to buy everything over, and can you help us with these purchases and selections since it seems so daunting?

Yes, we can furnish your home with every piece of furniture including towels if needed. We have a design studio and have completely ordered every piece right at the studio for clients. We have wallpaper, area rugs fabrics, knobs, fabrics, etc. It can be a one stop.

Do I have to buy everything new to work with a designer?

No, we are happy to try and work with your existing pieces too, but many times adding a few new ones, along with a new rug, light fixture, accessories, etc. can bring your space alive.

Do you do window treatments?

Yes, we do window treatments all the time. In fact, I am a Window Fashions Certified Professional which means I’ve taken many courses on this subject alone to understand specifying the correct window coverings.

Do you do new construction?

Yes, we specify all finishes for new homes including, tiles, flooring, wall paint, lighting, plumbing, cabinets, etc. We do all selections from the ground up.

What is your style as a designer?

We like to design for the clients. As creative professionals, we can design with modern, transitional, or traditional. We have clients with all different tastes and backgrounds and we can design for a client who likes mid-century modern, Spanish villa, cap code home, etc.

Do you offer free consultations?

We do the complimentary meet and greet, but any home visits do require a fee.

Do you work weekends?

We prefer not to since we work long hours during the week. We’d prefer a late or early appointment during the week.

Does my spouse or significant other have to be at the initial appointment?

We prefer both to be at least on the first appointment, even if they say they don’t care what decisions are made. We find that most time they do have an opinion and we want to make sure we try to incorporate everyone’s likes and dislikes. Even couples that have been together for a long time surprisingly will hear something they have not in the past.

Do you have the ability to order custom furniture?

Yes, we can have almost any piece made custom to suit.

I don't know what design style I am, so it may be hard for me to work with an interior designer?

Through our series of questions on the initial consultation, we will determine that and it doesn’t take long for us to do so.

How do you charge for your professional time?

Hiring a designer is an investment in saving you time and peace of mind which is cost-effective in the long run. We make sure the selections and items you purchase are appropriate for your space. There is no industry standard for designer fees, but generally an hourly fee. A flat fee can at times depend on the space.

How do I prepare for my initial consultation?

We suggest having some images saved from the internet or magazines, so we can capture the feeling, colors, textures, and look. Just save or print them for us and we’ll go over them at the initial consultation. Also, think of an inspiration piece in your home that you can share with us. It can be a piece of furniture, art, accessory, etc.

Do you have references?

" I have worked with Jennifer at FaGalde Interior Design for two major renovations in my home, a four bathroom remodel and a kitchen remodel. She designed, selected paint, tile, granite, flooring, and accessories for my projects. She listens to your ideas and is very knowledgeable of the most current design trends to transform your project into that perfect space. She has a great eye for design, color, and texture."

" I had no idea what I was doing when it came to remodeling our kitchen in our newly purchased 25 year old home. Where to start? Yikes! Jennifer was my calming voice and helped me settle on a plan and helped it come to fruition. She kept us within our budget and helped me turn my kitchen into a room I love and love to show off! Now, onto the living room :) "

- Rebecca S., El Dorado Hills, CA

" We met Jennifer at the Sacramento Home Show when we were looking for a decorator to help with our home. Jennifer came to our house so she would know what we currently had and what we wanted for our new design. Jennifer is very personable and professional. She had great ideas and our home turned out great. We love it!! We have more projects and will definitely call her when we are ready to move forward. "
