How did you hear about Essence?:

Initial Consultation

This takes up to 2 hours, where we discuss the issues you have, your ideas, plans, personal tastes,


It is also necessary to ascertain the way you and your family live and how you use your home, if you have pets,

 what needs the family members have and how to accommodate those individual needs. 

We also look at the existing contents  of your home and discuss what you feel needs to stay and what you think needs to go,

we look at your lifestyle,  your immediate and your future needs and your budget.

Using this information we can then make some on-the-spot recommendations about paint colour, furniture and layout, art works and accessories, window treatments and effective lighting. We can also show you some samples and you are invited to take down notes of suppliers, colours and products we have suggested. 

If you would rather have it all documented, you could choose to upgrade to a home styling package. 

Interior Decorating Packages

If you like what you are hearing and want to proceed with the recommendations, then we will prepare scale drawings and paint schedules if needed, and display the finishes on a design board for your approval.

Documentation is included in all the interior styling packages offered on the rates pages.

You can choose to take a package depending on your needs.

Full day or half rates plus project rates are also available for those with larger projects to complete

Project Cost Calculations

Another way is to pay as a percentage of the total project cost (also called a project fee). This is calculated as a lump sum based on the hourly rate and the time needed to see the project to completion. This enables the client to know up-front the cost of the interior styling service before work begins. It makes budgeting for the project a lot easier for you. A project fee is negotiated with each individual client, according to your own needs.

In this case the project fee is fixed at the start of the renovation and wont change. ** SEE OUR "SERVICES" TAB FOR MORE INFO

A deposit will be required before works begin and interim payments are required at set intervals, as advised by us.
