Our approach

We're pleased you're here, taking a step closer toward creating a home to meet your personal dreams and goals. Our approach begins with sharing a conversation to learn more about you and your project in order to determine the most fitting service.


Initial Consultation

This is where our process begins. In this first meeting, we'll uncover the design vision for your home and help you identify important priorities, be it for decorating, an upcoming remodel or a new home.

We listen attentively and take note of your routines and interests. We even set aside a portion of our meeting to review your home and your project plans while using a unique (and fun!) method for quickly determining your design style and preferences.

We’ll discuss projected timelines and budgetary goals for bringing your project to the finishing point. All questions are welcomed. In fact, we’ll look forward them.

Throughout this initial meeting you’ll be able to experience how our services are delivered while appreciating well-founded design advice.

FEE: This session covers up to two hours of an intensive review for a fee of $595.00. (For longer distances, travel time may apply.)

Full-Service Interior Design

Our hallmark service delivers lovely and distinctive spaces, for a completed room or an entire home. Whether you're engaged in family, career, world travel or life's transitions, trusting your project to our skilled hands allows you to receive a personalized, turn-key level of service. We’ll create a solution for you, from interior decoration to light renovations not requiring an inspection permit.

A common thread connecting our Full-Service Design clients is the desire for home to be a place of renewal, for living more effectively and with a beautiful sense of ease. They share an enthusiasm about investing in our method, which brings dreams to fruition and allows for additional time to realize other important endeavours. If this rings true for you, please read on to see how it works.

Our exclusive system provides clear and concise guidelines for moving your project from concept to completion.

We'll begin by scheduling our Initial Consultation to review your space, gathering important information while sharing some inspiring design direction. We'll determine priorities, budgets and the team members needed who will play an important role. This is referred to as the “project scope."

Our Letter of Agreement and Proposal will be presented to you for approval and a remittance for our design fee will be received. At that point, we'll develop your Master Design Concept, a personalized plan delivered to you in a document that includes space-planning, design drawings, and storyboards to bring your design to life.

From there, presentations and reviews will allow for ordering product and will move us toward the project management phase. Finally, the deliveries and installations will bring us to the reveal and completion, where we oversee every detail for a photo-worthy finish!

FEE: The design fee for Full-Service Design is based on the project size and the scope of services to be provided, and will be submitted in advance for agreement. (For longer distances, travel time may apply.)

Remodeling, Finish Selections & New Construction

If you’re seeking to remodel your home to improve its function or bring it to a more current style—and you need assistance with plans and finish selections, this is the service for you. This is similar to our Full-Service process in regard to the degree of our involvement as we help you with decision-making and project plans.

As your project liaison, we'll focus on creating a vision and will provide a process to clearly communicate design concepts, projected budgets, and how your project will be organized. We eliminate second-guessing from the beginning, so you can enjoy your design experience from start to finish.

We team up with some of the best contractors, vendors and installers in our area in order to source and install tile, cabinets, fixtures and moldings to provide you with the ultimate combination of performance and beauty. Exteriors can be included. We’ll consider everything, from how you turn on the lights to anticipating your future needs.

We'll begin by scheduling our Initial Consultation for a full review of your plans, which could include a tour of the property. Working with the project team, we’ll establish milestones to meet deadlines.

FEE: The design fee for our Remodeling, Finish Selections & New Construction Service is based on the project size and the scope of services to be provided, and will be submitted in advance for agreement. (For longer distances, travel time may apply.)

Design Support Consultations

Photo+Dec+31%2C+7+00+00+PM.jpg
 

Our Design Support Consultation service is used to accomplish defined objectives for your home's interiors, where Full-Service Interior Design may not be applicable or needed. Some examples of items we'll provide laser-focused advice for would be: space-planning for furniture purchases, room styling, kitchen or bath finishes, custom window treatments, or art selection and placement.

Our guidance will provide you with the extra confidence to independently move forward and within your own timeline. If you're not sure where to start, we can help fill in the blanks.

To get the process started, you'll complete our questionnaire and then we’ll share a call to determine the time needed, allowing for a minimum block of ten hours. You'll receive a follow-up list to recap our advice, along with an action plan. If additional work is required to meet your objectives, we will create an addendum to this service. Of course, if you find the need for a concierge approach, we’ll propose how we may move forward with our Full-Service option.

FEE: Our fee for Design Support Consultation starts at $1,750.00.

PLEASE NOTE: We provide Design Support Consultations within a radius closer to our office. If your project involves empty to mostly empty rooms or ongoing lists for a larger scope, we will likely direct you to our Full-Service option. Full-Service and Remodeling clients receive the added benefit of our trade and vendor team.
