Consultation faqs


What's the first step?

After you contact me, we can discuss the details of the desired project, your project location, and the timeframe you need to work within. 

We will then decide on a convenient day for an in-home, initial consultation. 
The fee for the initial consultation is $100.00. 


can you work with my budget?

The design budget can be uncomfortable to talk about, but must be established before the project can begin. The budget will depend on the scope of the project and what is involved. A realistic baseline budget can be discussed during the initial consultation. 

The beauty of redesign, is that it is a more cost-effective approach to design. Hiring a designer at the beginning of a project will save you money, as we will get it right the first time. Rusty Fig makes every attempt to work with every budget.


I'm not really sure what my style is?

Not to worry. Most people can't define their design style, or like a combination of many styles. We will have a comprehensive discussion to identify your needs, style and space plan.

By using visual platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz,  we can refine your design preference.  Most importantly, the final presentation will include everything that you love, and the final result will exceed your expectations. 

"2020 was the most challenging year on every level, my Mom is in her 70’s and needed to move in the middle of a pandemic! I live in New Zealand while my mother lives in Cincinnati and my plan to fly to Cincinnati was not in the cards as planned. Thankfully I found Janet through Houzz and her personality, knowledge and can do attitude was just what we needed! She had no problems communicating with me in NZ and meeting and coordinating with my Mom in Cincinnati. She helped to plan for over a month before the move and then was was a source of strength and serenity the day of the move.

My mom was able to downsize and walk into a new apartment seeing all her most meaningful furniture, artwork and everything unpacked and set up within 9 hours. She actually cried with joy when she entered the new place and felt like she was on a home styling show. She couldn’t believe this was hers, all set up and ready for her to live in. So much joy and stress relief because of Janet."

"Janet is a design wizard! She has an eye that is magical for making a home truly feel personal and cozy. She took my house and turned it from drab to fab! I tried to imagine what it would look like when she was finished with it, but I didn't even come close! She did SO much more than I ever could have imagined! I was at a loss for words as I walked around my house and looked at all the beauty she had created. I couldn't believe it was mine and that I would get to live in this glorious creation! I cannot wait to have her talent added to the rest of my home! Truly a professional in her work!"
