We can’t say enough about Claudia’s suggestions, recommendations and brilliant vision for our home.


The best thing we did in our recent house renovation was to hire Claudia Hardy. We had never used an Interior Designer, but not a week goes by where we don’t comment “Can you imagine what our house would look like if we hadn’t used Claudia?”

We had the pleasure of working with her to completely renovate our kitchen, family room and 2 ½ baths from top to bottom. One thing led to the next and soon she helped update the entire downstairs with new paint colors, light fixtures, furniture placement/updates, etc. Claudia’s fresh ideas transformed our outdated house into a spectacular home that is beautiful, inviting, comfortable and highly functional. Claudia has impeccable taste, creativity and a real attention to detail. The smallest details and finishing touches in her designs make a room really stand out!

She is incredibly patient, always taking the time to understand what we like before presenting multiple design options, including new possibilities we could never have dreamed of. This knack for taking us step by step through the design process helped us envision our space in an extraordinary new way.

We can’t say enough about Claudia’s suggestions, recommendations and brilliant vision for our home. We will continue to use Claudia, even for the smallest projects, and recommend her to everyone!

What is the Process?

Step One

Send me an email and we will schedule a complimentary 15 minute phone call to discuss your project, my design fee and if you are ready, schedule a time for me to visit you and your home. Initial Consultation Visit is a flat fee that varies: $150-$300 – depending on the scope of the project and square footage. This service is for the Toledo, Ohio area. 

Step Two

After our phone chat, I will send you a Design Questionnaire to fill out that also has space to upload photos. This is an important step so that I can begin to think of design ideas to bring to our meeting.

Step Three

Before the visit, I will send you an invoice for our first meeting that can be paid with either a credit/debit card or a check.

Step Four

We meet for the Initial Consultation (Typically One Hour). We will walk through the home and discuss design ideas and look at tricky areas. If needed, I will take measurements. 

Step Five

Hopefully you will feel inspired and excited about the possibilities. I will follow up with an email to recap our meeting and send over any extra thoughts. Then you can decide if you’d like to handle the details on your own or hire me to help you finish.

Then What?

If you decide you would like to work with me to finish the project, I would be happy to help! I charge my hourly rate going forward. My hourly rate is $50-$75, depending on the scope of work and square footage of project. Travel time for additional home and showroom visits is billed at $25.00 an hour. If we work via e-design, you can save on travel costs. 

Thanks again for everything.


I love everything you picked out, it has turned out great! I will definitely keep you in mind down the road on future projects and referrals. 

Thanks again for everything.
