Winnipeg interior decorator, Sherri Cowlthorp, has been running her interior design and decorating business for the past 8 years.  Over that period of time she has worked with lots of different people and multiple projects.  Below you will find some answers to the most frequently asked questions:


How do you work?  Or How much is my project going to cost?

Once we have had a chance to discuss your project, and we have both determined that we are a good fit to work together I should be able to provide you with an approximate value of what your project investment in my time and experience is going to be.  This value will be based on an average of what similar projects I have worked on for other clients has been, and the scope of the work that needs to be completed on your project.


Has your billing ever exceeded this value?

The approximate value of your project is based on the scope of work that needs to be completed at our first meeting and and the average value of what other clients with similar investments in their homes and my experience have been.  If at any point after this meeting you change something about the project that requires more of my experience and time you will be charged extra to account for this.  Another example where a cost overage can occur, might be if you require me to source a very difficult to find product.


How do we keep from having unexpected cost over-runs?

I have found from experience with clients that they feel more comfortable when we set a billing cap.  The billing cap is based on the approximate value of your project estimate.  If at any time during your project billing reaches this point you will be immediately informed.


Have you ever found that some clients projects have achieved amazing results with less investment time than you first estimated?

Yes, This can and does occur when clients know exactly what they want and items are easily available.


If you would like to discuss your project with me, so we can both determine if we are a good fit to work together.  Or if you would like more information about my services please feel free to e-mail me here.  In the e-mail please provide me with your phone number and best time of day for me to reach you and I will be sure to contact you.  Or you can contact me at 204-918-4118.
