DESIGN CONSULTATIONS

We want to share our experience and expertise in commercial interior design and commercial real estate gives us valuable insight on the full process of finding, designing, constructing and marketing a new space. We'd love to help you along your journey even if you are just beginning with an idea, looking to open a second location or are in the middle of the process and feeling lost and unable to keep your doors open. We are here to demystify what it takes to open up a storefront or brick and mortar business because we know it is possible. As the world changes, storefront's have to be more strategic than ever to succeed. Our consultation service will give you an opportunity to bring all your questions to the table about what is needed to open a storefront and formulate a plan of action for your business.

This is for you if...
You have an idea for a shop, restaurant, office or any other public space but don't know where to start
You have a business online and want to create an in-person experience with a brick and mortar
You have a business that is at risk of closing and you need advice and strategy on how to keep your doors open
You have a business and want to open a second or additional location but you don't know how to make it happen

How does consultations work?
Consultation calls or meetings will be set up based on our joint availability. Each session will be 60 minutes and you will pay per session.
You will receive a questionnaire prior to the call where you can send the biggest topics of struggles for discussion so we can be sure to prioritize your concerns during the consultation time

Consultations calls are $250 per 60 minute call

Who will I be consulting with?
All calls will be with PLACES studio's principal, Chelsea Albright. an NCIDQ certified interior designer with 5 years of experience working in commercial interiors in Washington, DC. She comes from a background in Graphic and Web design and therefore passionately utilizes her knowledge of branding communications to support the success of small businesses. Design is not isolated and by leveraging multiple disciplines, businesses can now thrive because of the power of both online branding and in-person experience.
