Designing for wellness means that the foundation of our designs are created using six specific design principles, or our "Six Pillars of Design". These principles are rooted in research on how design can elevate us in our surroundings.
Visual and Sensory elements
Livable Design (Universal Design)
Collectively these six design principles can elevate your surroundings.
We can help you remodel your home using Universal Design concepts. Universal Design is the design of products and environments that can be used by everyone, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.
There are many people behind the scenes helping to propel a project. We have long-standing relationships with our fully-licensed trade professionals who understand the level of work that is expected from us. Our carpenters, builders, window treatment installers, painters, artisans and craftspeople are proven in their fields, allowing us to offer you true customization.
Bear with us as we measure and re-measure and take you through the “big picture” one more time. We prevent mistakes by methodically breaking down the project and eliminating out-of-scale furnishings and incorrect materials before they ever enter our project.
Design is an ever-evolving field filled with new concepts and challenges. Every year we attend the renowned, trade-only High Point Market and other trade shows for new releases and ideas. This way we're able to see most of the pieces we order first-hand and can specify only the highest quality vendors. Attending these trade shows allows for value engineering – comparing products from multiple manufacturers to find cost-effective alternatives that fit your budget
We love keeping up with the industry and sharing our findings with our clients. To keep our ASID membership active, we're required to attend seminars for industry-specific research, design trends and sustainability topics. (Even if we didn't have to...we would!)
It all comes down to communication. We provide weekly check-ins with updated checklists. We let you know what’s going on, every step of the way....and if something arrives not exactly as planned (yes, that can happen) we will take care it as quickly as possible. Rest assured that as much as you want to be on time and on budget, so do we.
You won’t see us posting pictures and tweeting our progress – unless you want us to! It’s your project and you can protect it as you please!
Once a fabric has been chosen for a project, we consider it yours. We don’t duplicate fabrics in another space. There are too many inspirational fabrics out there to find the same thing next door!
