We offer a wide range of interior design services including residential full room design, virtual residential full room design, Room Refresher packages, Designer for a Day packages, and room organization.
The Southworth Interior Design process is organized into 4 phases:
Phase 1: This phase starts with a free 15 minute phone consultation to briefly discuss the scope of your project.
If we are a good match, we schedule a 60 minute initial design appointment to discuss your needs, goals, and preferences in more detail. This initial appointment is billed at our interior design hourly rate of $75 which is due when scheduling. You may choose to complete our detailed client questionnaire sent prior to the consultation and provide us with images of your preferred design styles.
Phase 2: During the initial design appointment, we will come out to your residence to take pictures and measurements of the space in addition to discussing the vision for your project in detail. We will provide a total hours estimate for the entire project from start to finish and, if you decide to move forward with our services, the one (1) hour initial design appointment fee of $75 will be credited to your final bill for projects that are 8 hours or greater. Potential clients are not obligated to move forward with us after the initial design appointment.
Phase 3: Phase 3 starts with signing a contract and collecting a retainer. The retainer covers the hours worked for researching all components of the design, ordering samples as needed, and collecting bids as needed. We will also create and present a design board to you that includes pictures and samples where applicable. One free revision of the design board is included based on your communicated preferences.
Once the design board is approved, we collect the next retainer for the hours needed to make the purchases and the funds for the purchases themselves. Some clients pay cash and others choose to share their credit card to earn points.
Phase 4: This is the installation day. Think Fixer Upper on HGTV or Dream Home Makeover on Netflix. It is preferred that the client is not home during the installation so you will have a WOW moment when you see the finished design for the first time.
During each phase, Southworth Interior Design will maintain weekly ongoing communication regarding your design project via email. Clients never pay for estimated hours that are not used and will receive a refund in the event there are leftover funds at the completion of a project.
The phases described above are the steps for traditional interior design. If you are looking for a different approach, please check out our Room Refresher and Designer for a Day packages below.

The Designer for a Day package is created for those clients that just need a little help from a professional designer but wish to carry out the bulk of a project on their own. Perhaps you need help with selecting paint colors, wallpaper, flooring, tile, etc. Or maybe you have a room that feels awkward and would like a fresh set of eyes on it to help with solidifying its function or furniture layout. Whatever your needs, Southworth Interior Design will take the stress out of making these decisions!
4 hours of help with whatever design needs you may have - $260 ($65/hr)
A room refresher includes Southworth Interior Design using our trained eye to revamp a space alongside you. We will "shop" your house and personal storage to makeover a room of your choice. This may include rearranging furniture, moving decor around, and hanging art work. We will also give you ideas and suggestions for the space that you can complete on your own as homework. Don't worry, you won't be graded!
4 hours of help refreshing a room of your choice - $280 ($70/hr)
Room organization includes organizing all contents located in one room (ex. kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, closet). You can expect a clutter free, functional and beautiful room upon completion. This will include the inside of drawers and cabinets. You may choose to work alongside us for the first portion of the organization to help with discarding any unwanted, unused, or un-exciting items. The entire room should take no longer than one (1) eight (8) hour day but consecutive days can be scheduled as needed. The hourly rate for organization projects is $50/hr.
We do include the option to purchase organizational containers/jars/bins/etc. prior to the scheduled service date. This will require a 60 minute Initial Organization Consultation so measurements to be taken. Click HERE to schedule an appointment.

Hiring Southworth Interior Design also comes with extra perks as we give each client access to half of our trade discounts. Working with us allows you to save anywhere from 7.5% to 12.5% on all furniture and decor purchases made through our trade partners. Clients often find that this discount covers a large chunk of our design fee making working with us the obvious choice.
We currently create designs using product from places such as: Lulu & Georgia, Pottery Barn, West Elm, Rejuvenation, Parachute, Crate & Barrel, Olive Ateliers, Shades of Light, Kathy Kuo Home, Serena & Lily, Anthropologie, Vakker Lighting and MORE! If you have a certain store you would like to purchase product from, let us know and we will apply for their trade program if they offer one. These applications are typically approved in 2-3 business days.
Southworth Interior Design also has access to design centers such as the LA Mart and Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, which are not open to the public. Utilizing these resources allows you to create bespoke and one of a kind interior designs.
Each design and organization project is unique to the needs, goals, and preferences of our clients but the following chart will help to give you a range of hours for common projects from start to finish including installation day:
