design help for small jobs
Let us help you take on that project that’s been on your to-do list for way too long. Whether you’re looking for general ways to spruce up your space or need design advice to tackle a specific task, we’re here for you.
No project is too small, but in this case some are too big. Because there are only so many hours in a day, and only two of us, house calls are only open to projects requiring no more than 15 hours of time. Some examples of projects that fit the bill: sourcing furniture and fixtures, creating a plan to update a bedroom or bathroom, pulling together an overall look for your apartment.
If you have a bigger project that requires a more in-depth design process, email us and we’ll see if it’s something we can accommodate!
Feeling out a space is such an important part of our design process. Since we can’t be there in person, anything you can send ahead of time to mentally get us into your project is a huge help. The more you can send the better, but even a few images along with a sentence or two about why you signed up goes a long way.
House call rates are $250 for an introductory call and $150 per hour for any resulting design work. Your sign up deposit covers call prep and the one-hour introductory call. Additional hours will be billed separately. Every project is unique and unfolds in its own way, and we will do our best to work together to figure out the best way to move forward after the initial call.
2. JERSEY HOTLINE
a design lifeline for the aspiring designer
Decision fatigue and the pressure of perfection are real, and we’re here to bring some fresh eyes and calm to the madness of it all. If you’re in the midst of a big design project and need a sounding board to bounce ideas off of, we’re the design therapists you’ve been looking for. Let us help you brainstorm finish options, agonize over paint colors, and reassure you when you start to second guess every choice you’ve made up to this point. For however long you need it, the hotline connects us so you can move through your project with confidence, care, and a little bit of grace.
$250 for the initial onboarding call + monthly subscription fee. Monthly subscription rates start at $500. Access can be custom tailored to your needs.
3. Plaster 101 – Fundamentals
A sneak peek into our process from start to finish. Students will watch and Q+A with us as we plaster a wall over the course of an afternoon. Topics will include tools and materials, surface preparation, tinting with pigments, application, smoothing, dry times, and after care. The recorded video will be included as part of your takeaway.
This course is a pre-requisite for our Plaster 102 – Studio Workshop that will be open to a much smaller group of students, to try plastering themselves at home as we virtually guide them through the process.

A Note on Pricing: It’s not an easy time to be running a small business, but we do not want money to be what stops someone from learning to plaster. If you would like to take part in the workshop but truly cannot afford it, please email us. We’ll be reserving a limited number of free spots in each class.
