Interior Designer, IFDA Renaissance Design Consultations
What services do you offer? Solutions to decorating dilemmas! My by-the-hour design consultation never includes a sales pitch as I do NO selling of merchandise whatsoever. 3D renderings allow you to SEE before you buy or build; project management services for new construction/remodels; and access to my to-thetrade discounts which I uniquely give away to my clients.
Richard Ramey, Owner
What differentiates you from your competitors? Most decorators/designers are commissioned salespeople -- I know, I was too for the first five years of my career. So when establishing Renaissance in 1992, I decided to simply consult by the hour so my clients know my sole focus is instead on meeting their needs/taste. My clients shop wherever they like and can enjoy savings of 10% - 40+% using my trade discounts.
Tell me about your experience. This year, Renaissance celebrates 20 years of helping homeowners and businesses with every size, shape & flavor of interior (and exterior) design issues. What advice can you offer consumers about your specialty? My goal is to educate homeowners so they’re equipped to make sound long-term purchasing decisions vs. relying on “the advice” of a salesperson. After all, furnishings, flooring, etc. fall into the category labeled “durable goods,” intended to have a lifespan of 5-8+ years. Especially these days, who can afford to make a costly mistake? So what I actually provide to homeowners is “decorating insurance.” S.A. “Sam” Jernigan Renaissance Design Consultations 530.362.1339 www.RdesignConsultations.com Serving Nevada & Placer counties since 2004
