The Shopping List is a game-changer for many of our clients. Now that we have hundreds of projects under our belt, we’ve partnered with many of Australia’s top furniture brands as well as smaller retailers to make shopping as easy as possible for our clients.
The Shopping List helps us make the most of every budget and allows our designers to create spaces that look better for less.
By using the Shopping List, you are partnered with our Concierge – a dedicated ordering team to expedite and manage orders as efficiently as possible. Designers can dedicate more time to what they do best… Designing.
How does the Shopping List work?
Once you’ve completed your initial consult and purchased design hours, you’re in!
All Stylesmiths clients have access to our Shopping List Service where your designer can gather product inspiration, populate your list with the pieces you love for every room you’re designing, and check out with a single checkout.
There’s no obligation to buy, yet with our convenient ordering service, you’ll want to. Our team will make sure you know where each of your products are and when they will arrive.
It’s our mission to pass on the best price to you by giving you access to our exclusive Trade accounts. Save up to 45% of RRP for a 10% procurement fee.
How long is the initial consultation?
Typically one hour!
What should I expect from the initial 1 hour consult?
Our initial consultation is all about your designer getting to know you and your project, and likewise, you getting to know your designer’s aesthetic ideas and expertise. Your designer is a sounding board, so ask lots of questions! To make the most of your first hour together, keep these things in mind:
– Having a short list of design ideas ready is a great idea. Think about what you have, what you want, and what you need because these things aren’t always automatically apparent to your designer.
– Beyond design inspiration, it’s great to communicate your expectations for the project overall. Knowing your approximate budget, timeline and your priorities will help your designer move efficiently.
– If you’re totally clueless as to what will save your place, that’s okay! During this consultation, you and your designer will brainstorm some broad solutions, and you’ll hear his or her POV on your space. But keep in mind, while our designers are talented, they aren’t psychic! This session is for laying the groundwork for your design and your relationship with your designer.
Will my designer design my home / space in the 1-hour consult?
Remember, the initial consultation is usually only an hour long! Your designer won’t be able help you re-design a room, select paint, do floor plans or help you hang art! These are all things to look forward to in the design package after you buy design hours.
