Interior Decorating and Design Services
Initial Consultation 2 HRS $160 (+GST)
Additional or follow-up hours $80 hr
There is a 2 hr minimum charge for the Initial Appointment. Please understand that I cannot reduce the fee for shorter appts. Subsequent hours or additional appts are billed hourly at $60 hr.
At this time I’m only taking a limited amount of clients due to a heavy workload. I will do my best to post my available appts prior to each week…
Appts book up quickly, please let me know asap if you would like one of the following…
I will not be taking any local appts from March 18th to April 2nd as it’s Spring Break and I plan on having fun with my kids! If you are interested in Online Consulting, I will be available during that time. But before you purchase a package, PLEASE send me an email. The funds are in USD and since you are local, you can pay in CDN dollars!
Once we are closer to the date, I will update my site with available appts for the month of April based on my Online schedule – please be aware that there will be a very limited amount of appts available – thank you!
What makes Kylie M Interiors stand apart from the rest?
There’s quite a few reasons, but the biggest one is affordability.
Traditionally, Designers will come to your home for the Initial Consult, they will tour your home and chat with you about your style, dreams and budget. They will then go to their office and formulate a game-plan and a budget for your home. They might also do renderings and drawings of the end product and usually, you will sign a contract to get the ball rolling.
My Decorating Services are a little different. I specialize in a 2 hr Consultation. In our 2 hr Consultation we will discover what you and your home need. Whether it’s a few decorative touches or a major facelift! At the end of our 2 hrs, you will be left with a detailed to-do list of what needs to be done. We will fit as much into that 2 hrs as possible so you have all of the inspiration and ideas that you need!
Your Personalized To-Do List may include the following:
Interior and Exterior. Whether it’s 1 colour or a complete palette, I will help you choose colours that are tailored to you and each room in your home. I will also give recommendations on paint brand, sheen and other important details so that the job is done right. I will show you how to pick the best colours for your space so that you are part of the creative process and end up with colours that you love!

Repositioning existing pieces within the same room or from one room to another. This includes furniture, artwork and accessories. The goal is to have your existing pieces best accent the space and features you have – as well as helping to camouflage those flaws that you don’t like. My goal is always to use what you have before recommending that you purchase new pieces.
Small Projects or Update Ideas
Re-tiling backsplashes, refreshing fireplace mantles, hearths and surrounds, replacing hardware and light fixtures. There are so many great ways to update your home without breaking the bank.
Large Project Ideas
Curious about some Renovation or Remodelling Ideas? Let’s get chatting and brainstorming!
Learn about the best products for your home, where to get them, what colour and style to look for and how to make it happen. This includes everything from couches and tables to countertops and lighting.
Floor Planning and Furniture Planning
Need to buy new pieces but aren’t sure what you’ll need? I will help you determine the ideal pieces for your room based on it’s shape, Focal Point, useage and budget.
Renovating or Building a New Home
Whether it’s a powder room or an entire home, a 2 hour consultation is a great way to get the ball rolling in the right direction. I will share valuable insights with you and refer you to some quality trades and builders (if you haven’t selected them already.)
Clients who are building new homes tend to use my services for an average of 8-10 hours throughout the selecting/building process.
*At this time I am taking a limited amount of new clients who are building new homes. Please ask about availability
Recommendations and Guidance on…
Painting, distressing, glazing, staining wooden pieces to bring them back to life or give them a new personality.
Your 2 hr Consultation will involve a comprehensive to-do list of what to do/fix/purchase in order to prepare your home for it’s listing. You will also receive a Personalized Home Staging Package which contains specific details to show each room to it’s best advantage.
In-store or online. I am available to shop for you or with you. Whether you are looking for that 1 special piece or shopping for multiple spaces, I will use my educated eye and personal flair to help you select pieces that best suit your style. You will also have access to my designer discounts at various local retailers. (If I am shopping for you/delivering items, there will be a 10% sourcing fee for all products purchased)
Are you looking for feedback, food for thought or brainstorming on a project? Are you ready for a change, but not sure where your money is best spent? I am available to help you figure out what to do, how to do it and to figure out approximately how much different aspects might cost.
Please refer to my E-Design / Color Consulting and Decorating Services
Peace of Mind
No matter what you are doing or how much you are spending, I will ensure that your money and time is well-spent and your selections are appropriate to your style and tastes.
Whether the scope of the job revolves around picking an accent chair or building an entire home, the results should be tailored to fit your lifestyle, taste, and budget. No budget or project is too big or too small. I am committed to getting you the best value for your money while creating a personalized space with style, flair and creativity.
So there you have it! Now that we’ve done your 2 hour Consultation, if you need a 1 hr follow-up appt to talk about the next stage, get advice on product choices or simply to get more ideas on a new project then you have HOURLY access to an Interior Decorator with your best interests at heart. My goal is to NOT make more work for myself via a contract or additional hours, but to give you the information and confidence to move ahead on your products, knowing you have a Decorator behind the scenes who’s got your back – you can call me if/when you need me!
I much prefer emails so that I have a written history of our communications. Please email me at [email protected]
Looking forward to hearing from you!
