After interior architects and decorators, here is the emergence of the "decoration coach"! Since TV shows and the written press revealed them to us, the phenomenon has invaded the market from agencies specializing in coaching and interior makeovers to department stores and DIY stores. To choose it well, here are some tips… First of all, for all these professionals, prices vary from 60 to 150 euros per hour for a simple interview, and from 200 to 1000 euros for a coaching project depending on the number of pieces desired. Explanation. The decoration coach can intervene for a simple advice or for a more in-depth project spread over several meetings. The session can last half an hour or half a day depending on the speakers and the request; in store (with your plans and photos of your space) or at your home directly. A site visit is generally necessary to identify your problems and expectations, sometimes using a precise questionnaire (habits, preferences, wishes) and a trend book. It is real personalized support. Valérie Laporte-Vélatier from the agency Walls with ears tells us: "At the start, you have to go with the feeling and then get along well to play the game and help the person deliver. They really need to have confidence in their coach". During the second meeting, the interior design coach submits to his contact person a shopping list as well as sketches offering different layout options. This is sometimes a complete makeover or a simple change of decor with a few brushstrokes, moved furniture or a single change of lighting. Furniture does not have to be wiped clean! Coaching can then stop at this counseling phase or continue until the project is completed, including shopping. For an optimal advice approach, it is essential to choose the right decoration coach. For this, some essential tips are to be remembered. Word of mouth is one of the best ways to get an idea of ​​your skills. The Internet is also a path to follow: his site is his best showcase, you can see the work of the "decoration coach" and get a first idea. Then during contact, observe his approach. He must be attentive, give you time to appropriate his proposals, take into account your tastes, your priorities and the space that is considered. Tony Lemale recognizes this: "We are very attentive, we constantly challenge ourselves to always seek out the wishes of the client and let him make his choice". Yes, the decoration coach is a real outside eye that helps you make decisions. This is why it is essential for him to move to perceive and feel your environment. His strong point: he knows the trends, the shops and does not lack ideas! Finally, do not wait until the end of the interviews to talk about the budget! Large brands offer these services such as Coach Studio of Castorama (only at La Défense and Bordeaux),Archi workshop of the Galeries Lafayette (Paris Haussman) or Mr DIY which will soon launch a website dedicated to "decorative coaching".
