Tested processes are employed when designing / redesigning your home.
- Review clients goals, objectives, budgets and expectations.
- Focus on clients style, how their home is used, and on structural and architectural requirements
- Review clients wish list, magazine clips and inspiration photos
- Identify and note those pieces in the space that will remain and determine if they need updating or refurbishing. Often times, existing items can be worked into new designs, that result in a cost savings to the client.
- Measurements are taken during the first site visit, from which as-built drawings are produced. Unless a full set of architectural plans are provided, then this stage of the process is simplified.We also like to take photos of your home.
- Creation: The co-creative process includes concept development, designs including floor, color, and lighting plans, research, specifications and samples.
- Design concept, materials, options and estimates are presented to you. The design is adjusted as necessary. Additional presentations may take place throughout the duration of the interior design process.
Your design is implemented, and details are refined. Purchase arrangements are made for project elements including architectural materials such as cabinets, countertops, flooring, plumbing and lighting fixtures. We also offer construction services, please see our Design / Build section to review this process.
Although the terms interior design and interior decorating are sometimes used interchangeably, each discipline exhibits a distinct difference in its scope. Interior design involves manipulating the architectural integrity of the interior space. Interior decorating, on the other hand, is generally focused on the selection and presentation of interior items within a space, such as furniture, accessories, finishes and room layout.
