process


The interior design process involves a number of steps with many decisions along the way:

INITIAL PHONE CONSULTATION AND QUESTIONNAIRE

After an initial phone consultation, we email you a short questionnaire to complete and email back to us. This questionnaire helps us further understand your design needs, design esthetic, budget and timeline requirements. Once we receive and review the completed questionnaire, we schedule an initial appointment to meet you and visit your home or office.

INITIAL DESIGN CONSULTATION/PROGRAMMING

We meet and tour your space.  We take measurements and pictures, and  inventory your existing furnishings and accessories.  We ask many questions about the space(s) that we are going to design, and we review the information that we learned from the questionnaire to ensure that we understand your requirements. We now have enough information to begin creating  design concepts leading to the final design proposal.

LETTER OF AGREEMENT

A signed Letter of Agreement outlining project scope and deliverables, terms and conditions and the design fees is required to start on your project along with a retainer.

DESIGN CONCEPT

We create an online presentation board to share our vision with you. This enables us to easily and quickly collaborate with you to discuss, eliminate and ultimately reach decisions.  We can review these either in person or online. Once we receive your feedback, we begin creating the design concept with specific selections.  

DRAWINGS FOR APPROVAL

We create and present renderings of the space using the actual approved pieces in your plan so that you can see and approve the final look of the space.

MERCHANDISE PROCUREMENT

We create purchase orders, negotiate the best possible pricing with vendors, contractors, installers and delivery companies and arrange for delivery and installation and follow up with vendors in order to minimize delays.

DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION

We oversee the delivery and installation process, inspecting all items to ensure they are in excellent condition and taking care of any issues that might arise.
