Frequently Asked Questions

How do I explore working with Hayley?
Fill out a submission form to get in touch!
What does the design process look like at HEI?
It’s important for us to understand our clients’ lifestyle in tangent with non-negotiable utility demands of the space.
We then proceed with our five step design process:
  • Step 1: floor planning
  • Step 2: inspiration and sourcing
  • Step 3: proposing asset specs, pricing, lead times
  • Step 4: placing and tracking orders
  • Step 5: install and styling
Where are assets sourced from?
Hayley and team have access to trade vendors who exclusively sell to those with trade credentials. This means that our rolodex is deep as we source for each project and our clients appreciate unique pieces that are not available to the masses.
What if I have a really specific challenge (tricky layout, kids who are tough on furniture)?
That’s the beauty of custom. For example, items can be tailored down to the inch based on the floor plan and the way you use your space. We pride ourselves on creating specialized design solutions to maximize the function and aesthetic of a home.
Can I keep an existing piece?
Of course. We love to incorporate family heirlooms and bring new life to existing pieces through reupholstery and refinishing.
Hayley has a knack for creating warm spaces through a curated mix of unique, trade only pieces, custom or bespoke pieces and reworked items. The result is timeless yet fresh designs made for everyday living.
How long will my project take?
This will depend on the urgency and scope of the project but Step 1 and Step 2 of the design process can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
Our trusted workrooms and artisans typically range from 4-10 weeks in their lead times.
  • We typically work with LA-based vendors for quality control
  • Custom and bespoke items are never backordered!
How much should I plan to spend on my interior project?
Every client weighs the importance of specific design elements differently, based on their preferences. Some clients prefer to splurge on finishes but save on lighting, for example.
Our proposals are incredibly detailed to provide full transparency of costs from the largest expenses to trimmings.
