Interior Design & Decoration:
Our Step-by-Step Process
It all starts with a conversation. We either meet in person or speak over the phone, depending on your location, to chat about your design challenges and needs. We get to know each other a bit, and together we decide on a personalized, yet optimal design strategy for your project.
Next I return to my studio and develop mood boards for inspiration. These are a collection of images, sketches, colors and textures to convey the "look and feel" of your space. This is where we determine your style direction and design concept. (Click here for an example of a mood board.)
My team and I take detailed measurements of your space and inventory existing items. We draft a floor plan, begin space-planning and develop furniture layouts. At the end of this stage, we provide you with a Schematic Design package, including preliminary drawings, project timeline, product selections and proposal.
Once we receive your comments on the Schematic Design package, we move into Design Development, where we develop and refine the design to the next level. My team and I create a final set of drawings, possibly 3-D views of key areas, color palette for each space, and finalize product selections and proposal.
Once you approve Design Development, we ask for a full deposit on product proposal amount, and we begin ordering and purchasing all products. We communicate with vendors and make sure products are delivered on time. We also coordinate with various tradespeople and oversee installation. Once installation is complete, I personally walk through the space with you and review any details that may need adjustment.
Remember...your happiness is the goal.
Interior Design & Decoration fees are based on the scope of work and specific requirements of your project. Typically we work on a flat fee basis per project, calculated by the number of hours we estimate the project will take. We provide you with a specific outline of services included in that fee, and anything that falls outside this outline is charged hourly. In terms of purchasing, we charge ensure you are charged beneath retail price on all products that are purchased through us.
