Amy works on a flat fee scale. Different pricing options are available depending on the scope and scale of the job, from consultations ($300/up to 2 hours) to full room makeovers (starts at $950/room).The online portfolio shows three projects, a Lincoln Park photography studio, Bucktown loft and Lakeview condo.In an email to AT, Amy described her business: "My cost model is such that I don't earn my fees as many designers do, which is through markup on items purchased for the client. Instead, I charge flat fees, depending on the service desired, and even help my clients cut costs by allowing them to implement my 'plan' on their own.
I also spend time trying to educate clients on basic design principles so that they feel more confident in making their own future decisions".
