How Lily + Luxe Is Unique
One of the biggest differences between Lily + Luxe and other design firms is our practice of using a fully transparent design fee structure. No unclear project parameters or hidden design fees. The result is; clients feel at ease with the project process and we root the company in a foundation of honesty and integrity.
NEW PROJECT RETAINER

The retainer covers a minimum of 1 hour and maximum of up to 40 hours of work with any additional work to be charged at the hourly rate thereafter. Retainer fees are paid at the signing of the design contract and cover work completed within one month.
