When it comes to the designer-client relationship, what obligations does the client have? We asked five designers—Jodi Morton, Jenny Dina Kirschner, Samantha Fisher, Linda Hayslett and Hallie Henley Sims—how they define client responsibilities.
We asked nine designers—Wendy Yates, Christi Barbour, Mary Patton, Cristina Casañas-Judd, Kiyonda Powell, Sara Barney, Lauren Hudson, Sarah Blank and Nina Grauer—whether or not they charge an initial consultation fee.
For designers, being asked for decorating advice comes with the territory, but when friends and family want help, at what point do you ask for compensation? We asked six designers—Sarah Willett, Meredith Ellis, Grant Gibson, Vanessa Deleon, Jennifer Mehditash and Doreen Chambers—for their thoughts.
