interior design PROCESS
We seek to make the interior design process transparent and hassle-free, involving you as much or as little as you’d like, so you can focus on what’s most important to you.
Here’s what you can expect working with us:
Typical length of time: 2-3 weeks
We start with an initial phone call to get to know you and your project. If the project is a good fit, we'll schedule an office visit so that you can learn more about how we’ll work together. After that, an on-site consultation is where we’ll do a thorough walkthrough of your space to create the scope of work that will kick-off your project.
Based on what we learn in discovery, we create a design proposal that covers the scope of work, fees, and some working principles. Proposals are working documents that can be modified, and our goal is to create an arrangement that is comfortable, realistic, and successful.
Typical length of time: 2-6 months
After the interior design proposal is approved, we start work on the schematic and conceptual designs for your project. If you have ideas and style inputs, we gladly incorporate those. We share initial floor plans and concept boards to show you the possibilities, and shape the direction of the project. Your candid feedback here helps us create something that is exactly what you were looking for—even if you didn’t know it.
Upon deciding the direction of the floor plan and concept, the iteration begins towards the final design details for construction, and the final selections of fixtures, furnishings, accessories, and art. We get pricing for all work and items, and create a comprehensive budget.
When all pieces of the design have come together, we present the entire space to you. We get your approval on all selections so there are no surprises down the line - you'll know exactly what your space will look like and what it will cost at the end of this phase.
3/ PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Typical length of time: 4-12 months
Project management includes construction documentation, managing all purchasing, receiving, and delivery, as well as oversight during construction. We work closely with our vendors and contractors for the purchasing, logistics, and construction work. We're on-site regularly to ensure quality and adherence to the vision, and quickly handle any unforeseen issues that may come up and the headache that comes with that.
4/ INSTALLATION + STYLING
Typical length of time: 1-2 weeks
The most exciting step of your project is with the completion of construction and/or the installation of furniture, fixtures, accessories, and art. Styling, where we make final adjustments and artful touches, ensures that the interior design vision for your space is fully realized.
5/ PROJECT CLOSURE
We do a final walkthrough of the project where we note anything that isn't quite right. Any deficiencies will be resolved in a timely manner. We send you the final invoices and project documentation for your payment and records. Lastly, professional photos of your new, amazing space are taken to show the before-and-after.
After your project is completed, we're still here for you! If there’s anything that’s not quite right, we’ll get it sorted. We want to hear about your experiences, questions, or concerns. Your testimonials and referrals are also greatly appreciated.
