our Ten Step Process

Designing your home can be a very lengthy and tricky process if you don't have a plan. We use a systematic approach to see your project through to the end and to avoid as many pitfalls as we can. No project will ever come without its challenges, but you can rest assure that we will handle any bumps along the road, big or small. 

PROJECT INITIATION → PHASE ONE → PHASE TWO → PHASE THREE

Step 1 - Consultation                                                       

This consultation will include an overview of the existing spaces, your goals for the project, a rough timeline for completion, and your estimated budget.

Step 2 - Project acceptance 

Based on our consultation, we will present you with a personalized Interior Design Agreement that will include a scope of work detailing your project, an estimate of hours to complete Phase One and a budget based on our discussions. Once our contract is signed and we receive your deposit, we immediately get to work on designing your home.

PROJECT INITIATION → PHASE ONE → PHASE TWO → PHASE THREE

At the conclusion of Phase One, all furniture, lighting, window treatments, paint, and some art will be finalized. The majority of wall décor and accessories are not selected until Phase Three.

Step 3 - Collection Day

We will schedule a time to visit the site to take measurements and photos of the space. We will use this information to develop special plans, layout and details for your project. All necessary tradespeople (painters, electricians, etc.) will be on site ready to take their own measurements and begin setting quotes for the requested work. Client does not need to be present for this step.

Step 4 - Ideation & Creation

Development of the preliminary design. The design concept will evoke the overall desired feeling of the space and will help inform future decision making. Once we have your stamp of approval, we will begin sourcing specific pieces.

Step 5 - Design Presentation

This includes a visual presentation of all selections including color palette, furnishings, lighting, window coverings, floor coverings, and artwork as well as a presentation of estimates.

Step 6 - Refinements

The scope of work will include one round of revisions. This phase includes execution and presentation of any refinements as well as final approval of design and selections.

PROJECT INITIATION → PHASE ONE → PHASE TWO → PHASE THREE

Step 7: Order Placement

This includes collection of payments for all selections, submitting purchase orders to vendors, meeting with upholsterers and window workrooms, as well as coordinating freight, receiving, delivery and installation of goods.

Step 8: Construction

Begin any minor renovations and cosmetic improvements needed to move forward with the project. This may include built in bookcases, crown moldings, doors & hardware, painting, lighting installation, retiling of a floor, fireplace or backsplash, or any other structural changes we dream up during the design process.

PROJECT INITIATION → PHASE ONE → PHASE TWO → PHASE THREE

Step 9: Install & Styling Day

This is where it all comes to life! This step includes installation of all materials, purchasing of décor elements and a full day of installation and styling. We will ask that your family take a full day away from your home so we can work efficiently and provide an exciting reveal when you come home.

Step 10: Project Closure

Upon your arrival, we will take some time to walk through the space with you and fully review all changes made. You will be provided with a binder detailing all warrantees, tradespeople contact info and any other pertinent information. Final invoices will be issued within 10 business days.
