Do you work in my city?
Interior design can be a tricky proposition that requires a lot of collaboration, especially when one party is in a different part of the country. Thankfully, modern technology has opened up many possibilities for remote jobs and collaborative efforts to be successful.
Here at Design Only, our services are done completely remotely, so even if you’re on the other end of the country from my studio in California, we can make it work. We use automation systems, video phone calls, and email to plan out your project seamlessly and create an amazing result. And you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home!
How do you work on projects all over the country? What’s the process?
When it comes to tackling projects that span all over the country, I have a specific process I follow. To start off, we hop on a Discovery Call so I can learn more about which aspect of your home you want to improve.
Once we decide to embark on this journey together, there are several steps you must take before I can begin designing: first, you will answer a questionnaire that helps me understand the specifics and nuances of your project; second, you’ll measure and sketch out the scale; thirdly, I need photographs of the space so I get an idea precisely of what it looks like; and last—but not least!—you’ll curate some visuals that embody the style and vibe you’re aiming for.
With all these details in hand, I’m ready to create the best possible solution for your project. You should hear back from me within 3 weeks – let’s get started today!
How will you figure out my aesthetic?
Everyone has a unique design aesthetic. At our firm, we understand that discovering yours can be an exciting journey. To assist in finding your signature look, we offer ways to unearth it. Our style quiz is a great place to start—just answer a few simple questions and we’ll have more insights into your preferences.
To dive a little deeper, you’ll complete our questionnaire which provides further clues—it’s full of thought-provoking questions and interesting prompts. Finally, supplying examples of inspiration from magazines or Pinterest and Houzz helps coalesce all the information together; it allows us to create the perfect style for you!
What’s the interior design fee structure?
For a flat rate determined by the type and size of the room, you can have access to professional design insights and guidance on selecting furniture, furnishings, fixtures, and equipment. For most rooms, this usually starts at $2,000 for furniture and decor only and up to $12,000 for kitchen and bathroom designs. Remote interior design is an efficient way to get your home to the next level.
Where will I purchase furnishings?
Shopping for furniture and decor can be an exciting process! The key is to make sure that you find the right pieces to enhance your home. With the design package, you’ll get a shopping list of exclusive trade-only vendors with direct links to purchase each item at fantastic prices.
When it comes to remodeling your kitchen and bathroom, you get much more than just a detailed list of all the items needed to complete your kitchen or bathroom remodel—you also access a list of resources in your local area so that every furnishing, and fixture, or equipment is easy and stress-free to find. By taking these extra steps, you can be sure that you’re getting the perfect look for your home.
Who will measure the space?
Measuring your space might sound like a daunting task, but don’t worry—I’m here to help you every step of the way. I will provide clear and simple instructions for how to get an accurate measurement for your room, as well as all the tools you’ll need.
If you have access to architectural floor plans, my detailed instructions will tell you exactly how and where to get those scanned and sent my way so that I can ensure you get the most precise measurements. Working together remotely doesn’t mean that this must be a difficult process—we’re going to make it just as easy!
Should we do everything at once?
When it comes to decorating your home, you have a few options when it comes to how to go about it. You can tackle everything at once – floors, walls, ceilings, and everything in between – or choose to do only one or two rooms at a time. It is entirely up to the homeowner on which path they want to take when tackling their interior decorating goals.
If the room-by-room route appeals more to you, consider looking at the space that bothers you the most and start from there. This will not only allow you to focus all your energy on one particular area but also help prioritize what needs to be done first as well. Give yourself plenty of time and enjoy every step of the process!
How often do you communicate with me throughout the project? What if I have questions?
Collecting questions and communicating concisely is the key to making sure the project runs smoothly. Here at KTJ Design Co, we pride ourselves on our commitment to client satisfaction, so once a week you can expect an email from us updating you on the progress of your design project.
We are always eager to answer any inquiries—simply take some time to write down all your questions before sending them in an email for us to respond. Doing this allows us to get back to you with comprehensive answers promptly and ensure that nothing gets lost in translation!

Why hire an interior designer?
Hiring an interior designer may seem like a big commitment, but it is the perfect way to get exactly what you want out of your design project. An interior designer takes all of the guesswork and stress out of remodeling by curating a space that is tailored to your individual vision while also keeping in mind your budget and timeline.
With their extensive knowledge of space planning, material selection, and intricate details, you can rest assured that your home will look better than ever before. Plus, working with a designer guarantees that the process is smooth and stress-free. So don’t hesitate—investing in an interior designer will be one of the best decisions you make!
How do you work on full-service projects?
If a full-service interior design project is the right choice for you, then you will be fully prepared to embark on a creative journey with expert direction, organization, thoughtful planning, and stunning results. Taking on such a task requires having trust in the designer or design team, being decisive, delegating when necessary, and having an eye toward the end goal.
From sketching ideas and selecting materials to coordinating installation and adding finishing touches that reflect your style—all the details can be worked out together! With full-service design comes not only confidence but also an easier, more streamlined quality of life for you.
What’s the process for full-service projects?
The initial step in any project is to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, we will go through your design objectives and discuss what you have in mind for your home. If you decide to partner up with us, we will then embark on an exciting journey of blueprinting, material selection and procurement, décor curation, installation management, budget control, and more.
Throughout the design process, we will be in constant communication and coordination with you—ensuring that all decisions are being made in a timely manner.
Once the project is complete, you can sit back and relax knowing that everything has been taken care of with precision, thoughtfulness, and stylish flair! With our full-service design process, you can trust that no element of your project will be overlooked—creating a space that is truly special and tailored to your individual needs.
How will you figure out my aesthetic?
Finding your aesthetic takes more than a little bit of detective work, but it’s an exciting journey. It all starts with our style quiz—the perfect way to get the ball rolling and help us better understand your personal preferences.
Once you’ve finished that, it’s time to fill out our questionnaire, as that will give us further insights into your tastes. Finally, adding inspirational photos from places you’ve been or hope to go to can really make it easier for me to discern how I can bring your design dream to life.
With this valuable information in hand, I can quickly apply my expertise to creating the perfect aesthetic for you! Getting to the heart of your desired aesthetic is the priority when it comes to designing a space that truly reflects who you are. To do this, we take into account your lifestyle and preferences along with your likes and dislikes. From there, our team will work on creating a design blueprint and material selection that brings together all of the elements necessary for the perfect balance of form and function.
How long will this process take?
The length of a project depends on the scope and complexity of your design plan. Generally, it takes 8 to 12 weeks for us to complete a full-service interior design project from start to finish. However, keep in mind that we work with you throughout the entire process—ensuring that all details are being attended to promptly.
No matter the timeline, you can rest assured knowing that KTJ Design Co. will be there to guide you through the entire process—from conception to completion! With our expertise and attention to detail, we are confident that the end result will exceed your expectations. So why not get started today? We look forward to turning your dream
What’s the fee structure?
At KTJ Design Co., we work hard to create an individualized service model that meets your unique needs. Our fee structure is based on the total square footage of your design project, a percentage of the overall project budget, as well as additional hourly fees for any services outside of our full-service scope of work.
We are happy to discuss all payment options with you during our initial consultation—allowing us to create a plan that meets both your budget and design goals.
Should we do everything at once? How will we know what to prioritize?
The age-old question of whether or not we should do everything at once or prioritize our projects is one that requires a personalized answer. Different methods can and will work for different people! If you are someone who prefers taking on all your projects at once, go right ahead; numerous clients we’ve worked with have reported great success doing so.
On the other hand, if you prefer breaking it down into individual rooms, start with the one that bothers you the most. Organizing your home can be overwhelming so it’s important to take whatever approach works best for you!
How often do you communicate with me throughout the project?
At KTJ Design Co, we recognize how important it is for you to be kept in the loop throughout your design project. We will stay in consistent communication with you via email and make sure to provide updates on progress weekly, ask questions as needed, and provide feedback when requested.
To make the best use of our time, we encourage clients to send all their questions together in one email which ensures that everything is addressed efficiently. Rest assured that regardless of the level of design we are doing, you will receive regular updates from us so that you can feel confident that your project is progressing smoothly!
Does KTJ Design Co. have a minimum size for full-service projects?
Whether your design ambitions are small or large, KTJ Design Co. has got you covered! We may have a heart for the grand designs that transform entire houses, but we equally enjoy tackling smaller projects with equal commitment and flair.
Our process is thorough with every detail examined and manufactured to perfection. With KTJ Design Co., one room or the whole house, you’re guaranteed a beautiful end result that integrates aesthetics and function. After all, no detail is too big or small for us to pay attention to!
