OUR PROCESS

We pride ourselves on a creative process that is met with functional and practical design solutions.  Our clients can be assured that we will always make the best design choice based on how well it meets their needs and the overall needs of the project.

This call can take place either by phone or zoom.  It’s a “get to know a bit about each other and your project” call.

This is a two hour working meeting chock full of ideas for your home.  Our  goal is to define and prioritize the scope of work and also discuss a budget that is realistic for the final result we both would like to achieve.  

We’ll then follow up, no less than a week later,  with a flat fee design proposal for your project.

We’ve now arranged to block off several hours to photograph and measure to start your project. 

We set aside one day, three weeks after the signed agreement, for all Trades to meet at the site.  Why?  This up-front meeting lessens the chance of surprises down the line – it allows us to review our loosely knit vision with our trusted Trades and for them to be able to establish quotes up front.

This is where we execute the schematics.  (floor plans, elevations, furniture and lighting plans, window treatment sketches, cabinetry design and millwork, color schemes.)  We’re sourcing furniture, fabric, finishes and materials and lighting. Depending on the project, we may be reviewing construction documents.  Estimates are being procured, including those from Trade Day.

We’re now ready to present our work!   We bring to you presentation material boards, floor plans and elevations as well a review of the budget.  You will be able to see, but more importantly,  know how your home will feel. 

Let the “turn-key” design process begin!  Here is where, with your approval, we start placing orders while keeping you updated the entire time. Our goal is that you never have to ask “where are we with our project?” And depending on the project, with our coordination, construction and renovation has begun.  At the same time, orders are trickling in to our local warehouse. 

Orders are accounted for and carefully inspected – now the furniture installation and styling process begins!  This can happen over the course of a day or two as our team is ensuring that the vision has become reality.   (Cue the happy dance!)
