Pay it Forward with Richard

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams

Most of us would like to believe we have some creative talent.  Many of us may not get to use the right side of our brain at our jobs so we unleash this stagnant beast on our homes.  DIY design can be costly.  Buying the wrong furniture is not something most of us can afford to do.  Kijiji and Craigslist shoppers are cheap AND selective AND they want free delivery (really)!

Richard listens at Glam Vintage & Moderne

Richard charges $225 per hour for his services and won’t charge you for travel  (within 100 Km of Port Hope) .  If you have not met him let me warn you… he is frenetic.  During that hour Richard can cover a lot of ground.  Colour, furniture placement, window coverings, fixturing whatever your concerns.  Give him some background and he’ll show up equipped to get right to it.

Here’s an excerpt from a thank-you note he received:  “Your energy is inspiring and the speed with which you come up with ideas is amazing. (truth be told, it is also a little scary)”  “You came to my home, observed my lifestyle, listened to me and then went on to create the most beautiful living and dining rooms. You completely transformed my space. .”

An inexperienced observer sees everything in a picture; the experienced one sees even the things that are missing.

— Rastko Ciric

One more piece of advice from me (chauffeur/assistant):  Don’t bother making him coffee…he never gets around to drinking it.
