design packages

I’ve always advocated for homes that make one happy, comfortable, relaxed—a home that pulses with your personality, reflects your style, and uplifts the spirits of all its occupants. Because really, there’s nothing like coming home and feeling all your cares and anxieties melt away.

But if the sight of your home is what makes you anxious and stressed, then I totally get it: Something must be done about it. Where to begin? The peeling paint? The haphazardly arranged furniture? The wrong color palette?

Even more: How long is it going to take? Will you need to move out? How much is it going to cost? Will you ever get the home you’ve always wanted?

If the thought of refreshing, redecorating, or remodeling your home overwhelms you, then leave it to the hands of people who know exactly what to do. Gal at Home Studio by Camyl Besinga doesn’t just bank on my years of experience in design and project management—as a magazine editor who curated photo shoots and pages, managed and coordinated an editorial team, photographers, stylists, makeup artists, and set designers; and later on, as an interior stylist who has helped my clients make their homes, offices, restaurants, and boutiques spaces that they love to be in.

What I am proud and excited to do is the collaboration involved—between client and designer, contractor and supplier—to give you a home and environment that speaks to you and the people who inhabit these spaces. I don’t just tell you what to do; design isn’t a cookie-cutter experience. Design is extremely personal: What works for some may not work others. You define what you want in your space, and I help you find it.

Given that, I have three design packages that may address what you need, while at the same time keeping within the budget you are willing to set aside for the project. Read on to find out more:

When budgets are small, sometimes all you need is a push in the right interior design direction. For this package, I can help you refresh your space with a little furniture rearranging, and style your home using your own decor and personal belongings. 

What will you be getting from me?

  • home style assessment
  • design inspiration/pegs
  • space planning and furniture layout
  • interior styling (using your own decor and belongings)

Will you be renovating with this package? 

No. This is purely a refresh—a way to make your home more palatable to your eyes, improve the flow in your room/s, and make it more reflective of your personality.

Will you be purchasing additional furniture pieces, decorative objects, or other items to improve your home interiors?

It’s completely up to you. Below are some add-ons you might want to include in your Refresh package:

  • A color scheme that you can follow if and when you decide to repaint/renovate, or to use as a guide when buying new stuff for your home
  • A furniture plan reflecting furniture pieces you’ve always had your eye on but wasn’t sure you should purchase/would fit into your space
  • Furniture elevations—designs for custom built-in furniture that you feel will improve the flow in your space, provide more storage, or be a better fit in your room than a retail item.

What are the terms of this design package?

My design packages are priced on a per-sqm basis, and since this will require me to go to your space, take measurements, rearrange furniture, and style your room/s—you know, lots of “muscle work” 💪—I require a space minimum of 30sqm. So if your room is smaller than 30sqm, you will be paying the minimum of 30sqm. (Email me to get my rates!)

After our initial site visit (more on what goes on during initial site visits below), I will need up to 1 week to assess what we can do in your space. After which, I’ll return to your home armed with design pegs, a furniture plan, and a couple assistants who will help me style your space and move things around. That simple!

Need someone to steer you into the right furniture store/fabric warehouse/color scheme? Allow me to help you redecorate your space by creating a working mood board you can implement on your own, including suggestions for furniture, colors, and fixtures. This design package is perfect for those who need design direction and would like to execute my design concepts on their own. I sometimes refer to this as my e-design package—great for people who are abroad, who cannot get off work or some other reason to meet with me.

What will you be getting from me?

  • home style assessment
  • design inspiration/pegs
  • mood board
  • shopping list with budget
  • furniture plan
  • color scheme
  • light plan

Will you be renovating with this package? 

Depending on your needs, you may or may not choose to renovate, and I will consider that in my design concept for you. The difference is you will take care of the execution of my concepts after you’ve approved them.

Will you be purchasing additional furniture pieces, decorative objects, or other items to improve your home interiors?

Yes, as this design package includes a shopping list of pieces and items you may need (depending on what we discuss during our initial site visit). Other add-ons to my Redecorate design package are as follows:

  • Furniture elevations for custom built-ins
  • 3D renderings—computer-aided design (CAD) drawings of my planned look for your space
  • Interior styling—if, after the renovation, you still want to style your space, I may come in and help you spruce it up, be it with stuff you already own or with new pieces we can shop for together

What are the terms of this design package?

Again, I require a minimum of 30sqm for the spaces involved. Assessment and sourcing lead time will also take from 2 to 4 weeks after you have signed a contract with me. Get in touch so I can send you my starting rates for the Redecorate package.

Interior design is definitely bespoke—it’s as personal as personal can get. To really give you the home you’ve always dreamed of, let me give you the full ID treatment: from design concept to renovation to finishing-touch styling

What will you be getting from me?

  • home style assessment
  • design inspiration/pegs
  • mood board
  • space planning/furniture layout 
  • color scheme
  • light plan
  • elevations for custom built-ins
  • room sketches
  • shopping list with budget
  • furniture, accessory, finishes sourcing
  • renovation project management
  • in-home meetings
  • interior styling
  • email and phone support

What are the terms of this design package?

Pricing needs to be determined after an initial site survey, and will be on a per-sqm basis. While I require no limit to space size, the renovation project management normally covers up to two (2) months (though this depends on the scope of work involved).

Assessment and sourcing lead time will also take a minimum of 4 weeks before I present to you my preliminary design concepts.

Think this is for you? Book a site visit now so we can discuss your project further.

OTHERS

Initial site visits

On my first visit to your space, I will be conducting the following tasks:

  • Interview you regarding what you like and don’t like about your space, and discuss your living and lifestyle preferences
  • Let you answer a home style quiz, which will help me determine what design styles you prefer
  • Assess, measure, and take photos of your space (this take up a bulk of our meeting session)

I base my package cost proposal after this initial site visit, and therefore require a fee of P1,500/hour, with a minimum of two (2) hours for locations within Metro Manila. Out of town rates (transportation and/or accommodation) vary.

 

At-Home Consultations

Sometimes, all you need is someone to bounce off your ideas with, and my consultation sessions may just be what you’re looking for. I visit your home and you can pick my brain for anything and everything interior design-related. If you want to discuss color palettes with me, let me know so that I can bring my paint color books.

My rate for at-home consultations is P1,500/hour for a minimum of two (2) hours (for locations within Metro Manila).

Ready to book a session with me? Drop me a line and let’s get a discussion started!
