Projects are typically billed as a flat Design Fee plus commission on goods and services sold through the firm.  The flat fee is determined after an initial consultation and is related to the overall scope of work contracted to Pamela Dailey Design. 

Hourly billing tends to work well only in scenarios where consultation is offered in a limited way.  Given the nature of the design process, where inspiration, sourcing, and communication can overlap between multiple clients within a given span of time, measuring time spent for a project to take shape can be an elusive undertaking.
