Sometimes all it takes is a bit of expert advice to make those small tweaks that give big impact to both your space’s functionality and overall look. Giving you both a fresh perspective and the confidence to move forward with your project.I'm ready, let's book a time

Our Virtual Design Consultations are a great opportunity to get specific tailored advice without having to engage a designer for the entirety of your project. Of course, there is no substitute to having a design team work alongside you from conception to completion on a home project, but our one-off sessions are a great tool to offer tailored expert advice on your self-managed design project, in digestible chunks that work within your budget.
If you’re reading this- then the answer is now! Our consults are designed to offer immediate and specific advice whenever you’re feeling nervous and anxious around the many important decisions that need to be made to ensure your renovation is a success. Many of our clients are embarking on home renovations for the first time, and there are a lot of pitfalls that can find your budget blowing out or worse, unhappy with the results of your space’s function or look. Jill’s decisive and confident approach to design issues are the result of her experience on not only client renovations but her own successful home projects.
The more information you can share with Jill on your call, the better she can assist you with your project. If you have floor plans or drawings, have them prepared as digital files that you can upload within the ‘chat’ sidebar in Zoom. Having any materials or finishes that you are working with or thinking about is also useful to explain your vision. If you have a Pinterest board you’d like us to reference, you can send a link within the call, or include this link in your questionnaire responses.
Our sessions are very productive, and we often get through your whole list on the call.
Past sessions have resolved space planning for extensions, while others have focused on selecting materials and creating a balanced scheme for bathroom and kitchen renovations.
Our time together is yours- so the more specific you can be in your pre-consult questionnaire the more efficient we can be together on our call.
Yes! Your pre-consult questionnaire will ask about your budget, goals and style so Jill can make appropriate suggestions and share expert tips and tricks to make your budget stretch further. These suggestions can range from build to budget friendly material selections.
No! Our sessions are designed for this very issue- to offer immediate and specific advice to issues you’re encountering during your renovation or decoration project. We know that making quick decisions are key to keeping your project on budget and on time, so our sessions are a great way to get clarity on these selections and expert guidance to keep moving forward.
Your consultation fee includes a 55 minute Zoom call with Jill. Prior to your consultation, Jill will review your questionnaire to help you tailor your time to prioritise your key issues during the call.
If after your session you want to continue working with Jill on other aspects of your project, you can book a second session to dig deeper into selections, planning or design ideas.
Consultations can be booked in the initial planning stage, mid-renovation or after construction for help with decoration and styling ideas. Booking multiple sessions during this process can be helpful to keep a consistent informed direction when plans change or you get stuck.
Virtual Design Consultations are designed to offer immediate, specific and personal advice for an issue you are facing, tailored to offering you expert advice on only the items you need guidance on. These quick fix solutions are helpful when you are managing your own project, or working directly with a draftsman, builder or individual trades. These consults are an invaluable tool when your budget doesn’t allow for full interior design services.
Full Service Design involves working closely with the JDD team from your project’s conception through design, budgeting, construction and the final furnishing and styling of your home. Our team manages your project in person from start to finish, so you can relax, confident that your home project is being managed by professionals at every step of the renovation journey.
