Frequently Asked Questions
What Sets You Apart From Other Designers?
We pride ourselves on being able to decorate spaces in any design-style and budget that fits the client's needs.
While some designers have one specific style that they tend to recreate in clients' homes, we like to take inspiration from whatever the clients' tastes are, and then bring our fresh perspective to it. We've created spaces in multiple different styles including modern, rustic, industrial, contemporary & more. We've also styled a wide range of events in every style imaginable. We truly want our clients to be inspired by their space once we're done with it. And we want it to feel like their own.
Something else that sets us apart is our ability to work with a wide range of budgets. We firmly believe that great design can be achieved without breaking the bank. To accomplish this, we shop at a variety of stores, from budget-friendly to high-end, and everything in between.
What Are Your Specialities?
We specialize in styling ANY space.
We love redecorating, but also use our styling skills for a range of other projects, such as holiday styling, renovation coordination, redecorating using existing decor, event planning & styling and more. To see a full range of our services and galleries of our work, check out our 'styling,' 'consulting,' 'e-design,' 'renovating,' and 'events & holidays' pages in our menu.
If you have a space that either needs some sprucing, or to be created from scratch, we can help.
What packages do you offer?
Shop & Style Package: This is our most commonly used option and allows us to help you from start-to-finish. We will shop for all needed items, coordinate deliveries, and bring it all in to style the space when everything is ready. The initial consultation is $200 in order for us to come out, discuss the space(s), and create an Estimate. The overall fee for the project will then be outlined on our Estimate.
Re-Style Package: If you already have items you'd like to use, but are unsure of how to put it all together, we can come for a styling session where we decorate with all existing items. This package is billed at our hourly rate for two stylists to work in the space (at $250/hour).
More details on our 'Styling' page.
Design or Renovation Consultations: We come out for an hour-long consultation ($250 fee). This includes discussing color scheme, design style, furniture and decor ideas, and general space-planning. We will leave you with our notes of our recommendations and anything discussed during the consult. More details on our 'Consulting' page.
We offer both Online Design Consultations & Mood Board Packages. These are open to anyone, either local or remote, and allow us to help you refresh your space virtually. See our 'E-Design' page for more details.
Renovation Planning & Coordinating: Feeling overwhelmed with your renovation? We LOVE renovation projects! We can help with both the design decisions and coordination of your project. To start, we come out for a consultation at our hourly fee, where we can help with paint selection, material choices, and space-planning. You could then move on with the project yourself, or use us to coordinate contractors to complete the renovation for you.
EVENT & HOLIDAY:
Event Planning Package: If you need help planning your next event, we can help with everything from choosing a theme, to creating invitations, to coordinating the entire event start to finish. Feel free to only use our help for some of the planning stages too!
Event Styling Package: If you have the party planned, but just need help styling and setting up the party on the day-of, we can help with that too! From decorating the venue to creating the centerpieces, we can help with all the special touches that make an event memorable.
Holiday Styling: Let us decorate for any holiday of your choice! Shopping for new items and/or decorating with your current pieces are all included in this package.
How Would I Get Started?
If you are looking for our full 'Shop & Style' package, we are happy to come out for a consultation to see your space and discuss your needs. This initial consult is $200. We will then create an estimate for our fee based on our time to shop & time to style the space.
For our Design & Renovation Consultations or our Restyle Package, simply contact us so we can get you scheduled! We don't collect our fee for these consults until the time of service.
For our E-design packages, we ask for photos and our fees up front in order to begin the virtual design process.
For Event & Holiday we'll want to meet to discuss the event or holiday needs and then create an Estimate.
Just contact us and we'll let you know where we should start!
What Are Your Fees?
SHOP & STYLE:
Our initial consult fee for the 'Shop & Style Package' is $200. Our fee for the project itself is based on the amount of time needed to shop for necessary items & the time to style and set up the space when ready. This estimate will be sent after our initial consult.
There are are also other factors considered in our estimate such as furniture assembly, large furniture delivery, custom creations, paint selection, renovation coordination, time spent at an event, etc... Because of all of these variables, we are able to provide our estimate of our fees after our initial consultation with you.
The amount you spend on the actual items purchased is completely up to you!
Because of this, we can tailor the types of stores we shop in to your budget-requirements. We strongly believe in building beautiful spaces without breaking the bank. You let us know what you're comfortable with, and we can create a space around that.
Our fee for our 'Design & Renovation Consultations' are $250 for the hour.
Our Online Design Consultation is $250 and our Mood Board Package is $450.
EVENTS & HOLIDAY:
Each project is estimated by job, depending on the specific needs of the event/holiday.
How Long Does Each Process Take?
We can typically schedule these quicker than our other services. Online Design Consultation reports and Mood Boards are usually able to be completed within approximately one week's time.
We can generally schedule hourly consultations within 1-3 weeks depending on our wait-list.
SHOP & STYLE:
We do tend to have a wait-list for our full-service package, so please reach out ASAP so we can get you on the list. As soon as we have an opening, we will contact you for an initial consultation.
Once we've had our initial consultation, received estimate approval & consulted our project schedule, we will set a time for shopping/planning to start. Once shopping begins, the process can be anywhere from a couple of weeks, to a couple of months. The timeline all depends on item/material delivery time, time for any custom creations, and completion of possible renovation needed (such as painting, etc...), Once all deliveries are made, we are usually able to style the space within a week or two in most cases. For events we usually require at least 1-2 months for planning, but possibly less for event-styling. Once we meet with you, we'll be able to give specific timelines.
When Is Payment Expected?
For our full 'shop & style' package, we ask for half of our overall estimate fee up front. This helps us cover shopping costs for the items we purchase on your behalf and our shopping time until we are able to style the space.
We do also ask for any large purchases made to be refunded once orders are placed. This includes all online purchases that are pre-approved by clients, or venue/catering deposits, etc... Then once the space is complete, we will send an invoice for all unpaid purchases, as well as the remaining half of our fee.
For in-home consultations, our fee is collected at the time of service.
For e-design we ask for our fee up-front in order to begin the project.

WHAT SOME RECENT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
"Jill & Sondra are very easy to work with! They take the time to learn your style, help create a vision for the space they are restyling and even do the shopping for you. They stay conscious of your budget, which is helpful especially if you have multiple rooms to be done. I have used them for several projects and have been very pleased with the results."
"Sondra and Jill are a fantastic team and were a joy to work with! They were efficient and creative and their design for my home was EXACTLY what I had envisioned! They were dedicated to finding accessories and furniture that fit my budget, and they executed it perfectly & in a timely manner. It was wonderful to sit back and have someone else measure, shop, style, and install all the decor, without lifting a finger. If we had ideas, we communicated quickly with photos and texts. They are great listeners and made the whole process super fun! I am looking forward to having them back in the Spring to do another room. I highly recommend Woodlands Style House!"
Fantastic from start to finish, Easy to work with and quality work....you will not find better!
Woodlands Style House designed our daughter's nursery, and we could not be more thrilled with how it came out. They really helped us achieve our "dream nursery". The room is beautiful, functional, and best of all- she saved us hundreds of dollars by searching for the very best deal for each piece! The process was so easy too- I felt listened to by the team, and was given options every step of the way. This is our favorite room in the house and I could not recommend them more! Thank you for creating such a special, gorgeous living space for our little girl!
I would definitely recommend Woodlands Style House! Sondra and Jill are great to work with and have so much creativity! They made the process of giving our house a much needed update fast, simple and great! We are in LOVE with our house and all the rooms they styled!
