Frequently Asked Questions

How would you describe your design style?

The Maggie Griffin Design style is punctuated by comfortable, Southern classics like blue and white China, pretty florals, soft linens, comfortable upholstery, and layered rugs. We believe in blending styles of old and new to create a new generation of Southern design that nods to both heritage and a modern approach. We love to think outside the box!

What happens during an initial consultation?

Initial consultations take place at your home or at the project site. During this meeting, we’ll listen to your design goals, assess your needs, and make a list of what we hope to achieve. We’ll also begin our master list of finishes, changes, and any suggestions. Finally, we’ll take photos and measurements, discuss space plans, and create a punch list for the project.

What happens during our follow-up meeting?

Follow-up meetings take place at our office in Gainesville, where we reveal our proposal for your home. We’ll supply mood boards in both digital and print versions, a spreadsheet of pricing, and quotes where applicable. For larger construction projects, we may also supply paint, lighting, and finishes schedules (i.e. plumbing, lighting, flooring, and tile). During this meeting, we’ll walk through each space step-by-step and show you as many samples as possible.

How does billing work?

We bill by the hour for our time spent on a project, including travel, shopping, sourcing, workroom pickups and deliveries, site visits, vendor meetings, and installations. We also bill for all materials we order. Invoices are provided via email and may be paid with cash, credit card, or check made to Maggie Griffin Design. Materials are billed as they are ordered, and payment is due within seven business days. For past-due invoices, a 10% fee will be added.

Where do you shop, and do I get wholesale pricing?

Items for your home may be a mix of old, new, and everything in between. We often source from retail stores, custom furniture shops, online sources, and large antique markets. We offer our clients as much wholesale or discounted pricing as possible.

Do you allow returns on custom items?

For our projects, we offer custom items to ensure that your home reflects your individual personality. We do not offer returns on custom items.

Who makes drapes, hangs wallpaper, etc.?

We have a select group of trusted vendors and subcontractors that we use frequently. This group includes (but is not limited to): hardware/lighting installer, a custom window treatment and bedding workroom, an upholsterer, and a grasscloth and wallpaper installer.

What happens on install day?

The MGD team will be there on-site on installation day to ensure the design comes to life exactly as to plan. Our installer team will install all window treatment hardware, hang art/mirrors, and hang simple light fixtures. It is our preference for our team to have the space to work without distractions or interruptions. We look forward to allowing you to enjoy the magic of the big reveal!

What do you order vs. what do I order?

It is our policy that we order all fabrics for a project as well as the to-the-trade items, and we are happy to order every other scope of the project. We ask that all order requests are placed via email to allow for a clear line of communication. Text messaging orders are not accepted.

How long does it take for items to deliver?

We have preferred vendors for items such as lighting, tile, furniture, fabrics, wall coverings. We allow 10-12 weeks lead time for delivery of all soft goods items as long as all items are in stock. We do our best to guarantee that your home will be installed in a timely manner, however please understand that lead times vary and items can be backordered. We remind all of our clients (and ourselves!) that this process requires a bit of patience
