Our Design Process

1.  Initial Consultation

This is the first stage of the design process and will be between you and the designer.  We use this time to discuss your project, goals, plans, and ideas for the space in question.  The goal is to gather information, including room measurements and photos, and expose any design limitations or considerations as well as learn your personal style and vision for the project.  We also use this time to go over the general budget for the project and our fee structure.

2. Conceptualization/Visualization

Next, we take the information we have discussed with you and get to work creating a concept for your design.  We gather images and inspiration to use as a starting point and may create a visual design board to help communicate ideas and help ensure we are all on the same page and are ready to move forward with your project.

3.  Assess + Adjust

At this time, we meet with you to present our concept to you and welcome any feedback and other ideas that may have come up since we last met.  We typically discuss project considerations such as furniture layout and placement of integral design elements if applicable.  We work with you until you are happy and excited about the concept and ready to move forward. 

4. Source + Specify

We source and hand-select specific products and pieces that we believe will work best in your space.  We take into account the design concept we are working to create and other considerations like function, traffic flow, and budget. 

5. Construct + Install

At this point, we are ready to begin implementing specific project decisions - this may include the ordering of materials and/or furnishings and collaborating with suppliers, contractors, and tradespeople.  Although you are responsible for directly placing any orders, we are happy to liaise with any trades on your behalf to assist with project specific considerations such as flooring installations, tile layouts, etc. 

6. Styling + Project Completion

The final step in the design process is a completion walk through of your project to ensure we are both happy with the finished details.  We use this time to assess the final styling needs and complete the project down to the finishing touches that make each project unique.  Styling and accessorizing is part of our design process and is an integral part of the completion of a project to provide you with a finished room you will be able to enjoy for many years to come. 

We often work with clients in stages - whether it's piece-by-piece, room-by-room - or the whole property at once.  Get in touch with us using our Contact page to discuss your upcoming project and ideas.  We'd love to hear from you!
