what are the general services you provide?
darlings & daydreams is a styling studio. we focus on the creative planning + styling of your event, celebration or interior design project. in other words, we take on the creative direction and partner with the folks who focus on the execution, or the overall logistics. this means that sometimes we partner with industry professionals and at other times, if you’re a hands on client, we partner with you. either way, our goal is to take your vision and turn it into a wow factor for the enjoyment of both yourself + those you love.
how would you describe your style?
darlings and daydreams was born out of a passion for making all things pretty. we’re drawn to the unique. the whimsical. the magical. and the unexpected. we feel that if there’s a milestone in your life worth celebrating – whether it be a wedding, a family photography session or the arrival of a new baby – then it’s worth creating the most memorable and beautifully unique space possible. our name pretty much sums up how we feel about celebrations and our passion for creating spaces reminiscent of the most whimsical, beautiful + imaginative daydream.
where do you source your inspiration from?
our favorite source of inspiration come from social media sites like instagram and pinterest. we love perusing these sites for their global reach and non-discriminative nature. while we get silly excited about a fabulous creative concept, we are all about the details, and these sites offer endless inspiration. we also enjoy a variety of blogs including style me pretty, green wedding shoes, martha stewart living, design sponge, design love fest, the design files and ruffled, to name a few.
what kind of interior styling projects do you do?
we believe that your home is your sanctuary and creating a space that suits your needs but also makes you feel giddy with excitement is just the beginning of your experience with us. we are drawn to nurseries and children’s rooms – adding unique wall art, unexpected color combinations, handcrafted toys and magical nooks for your little ones. we also enjoy styling adult spaces like living rooms, sun rooms and bedrooms. bohemian, whimsical, eclectic. loads of textures, beautiful colors, and statement pieces. a feeling of home. a sense of uniqueness. and an amazing place to call your own. that’s why we do what we do and love every minute of it.
do you travel?
yes! we love to travel and have enjoyed our many adventures both at home and abroad. in fact, a lot of our inspiration comes from those one-of-a-kind cultural experiences that can only be attained through travel. we have a love and appreciation for cultural differences and the creative excitement we feel from combining different details to bring together a truly unique and inspiring space. just let us know what you’re thinking – we’d love to continue our adventures with you.
how much should we plan on investing?
your investment is dependent on two factors: labor + materials. our fee structure is based upon each individual project and the amount of estimated hours we think it will take to pull together an amazing and totally unique experience for you. our ideas are boundless and our inspiration endless but this doesn’t mean it will take a large investment on your part. with a background in finance, marketing and fashion design, the budgeting and creative aspects of your project needs come naturally to us. we will work with you to help determine and stay within your budget. and once we provide you with our fees for the project they won’t change unless you – the client – change the scope. in terms of materials cost, we have many partnerships and sources of inspiration to accelerate the design process. after we have a better idea of materials investment, and before we get started on procuring those materials, we will present to you an overview of those costs along with a vision board to help you envision and prioritize each element of your styling needs.
